One of my favorite parts of the day is watching someone who is in pain find relief. Very cool.
I think it hits me so hard because I know what it feels like. I started experiencing chronic pain when I was in college, maybe even earlier, but I was probably too consumed with teenage life to notice.
Years of gymnastics and cheerleading (particularly college cheerleading) equated to MANY hard falls. Mix in a bad sledding accident and a slip and fall on a wet floor worthy of a cartoon caption ,and I was in pain. All the time.
By the time I had graduated and started a full time job in an office I could hardly find a comfortable way to sit in my chair. I would squirm, adjust, and figure out ways to position myself with the least amount of pain. At night I was in graduate school doing the same ‘dance’ to be able to sit through my courses.
I saw countless specialists, attended endless physical therapy sessions, and popped a lot of Advil.
Now years later (practically 30 years!), I’ve finally found the information and tools to bring me relief and I LOVE sharing them with others. If you know the feeling of not wanting to be in your own body because it’s too uncomfortable,
I know how you feel! There is definitely HOPE! Take a look around the website to learn more and find out about upcoming events.
By the way, that’s a photo of the lovely Kent Falls. Spent a gorgeous morning hiking there with my family.
Enjoyed lots of laughs, and no pain.
