My own chronic pain journey began when I became pregnant with my oldest child. Once I returned to work following my second maternity leave, my pain issues exploded through the roof & I have been recovering ever since. My official diagnosis list includes chronic pain syndrome, sacroiliac joint/pelvic girdle dysfunction, neuropathic pain, myofascial pain syndrome and depression. I am also waiting on an Ehlers Danlos Syndrome hypermobility variant specialist evaluation. During my quest to regain a sense of actually living my life and not just surviving from day to day, I have amassed a large amount of knowledge & personal experience that I want to share with others. It is my hope that I can help other chronic pain & chronic illness sufferers’ on their own healing journeys.
