In my mind’s eye, I still see myself as the athlete of my youth. That version of me felt she could defy gravity and fly with no effort at all. When I decided to write a book about my experience with chronic myofascial pain and to blog about it, nothing could better describe the state of health I’m moving toward than I’m defying gravity to reach the pinnacle of healing.
I refuse to allow chronic pain to pull me down, to bind me to one place, to make every effort exhausting. There’s no doubt in my mind that one day I’ll reach high overhead and bound effortlessly through life once more. I sincerely wish the same for you.
