about this blog
After a minor injury in 2007, I lived with chronic back pain for 2 years. Writing about it helped me to understand how pain could take over my life. Understanding helped me to claim my life back.
Although the pain descriptions make for somewhat harrowing reading, please know that I stopped having pain and haven’t had pain for years. I am blogging about this now because maybe someone will recognise their patterns in my story and through this recognition, find a way out as I did. Click here to start at the beginning.
In 2013, after pushing myself through a year of unrelenting pressure at work, my body had something else to tell me. That story starts here.
The rest is uncharted.
