I was an avid softball player traveling all over the country playing in different states and cites almost every weekend. I was a pitcher and played first and third. I was good, but it didn’t happen overnight. Months turned into years of practicing mostly 3-4 times a week. Between pitching practice with my coach and team practice you can say my schedule was always busy. And as time went on of course, I started getting better and better. So much so that I started getting recruited by the top colleges in the area. One of them finally offered me a Full Scholarship. I felt like I had finally made it. This is what I’m meant to do.
Then in 1996, my life changed forever… I heard the tires squealing and the metal warping and bending from the force of the impact. I couldn’t believe it, I was just in my first car accident. I was 17 almost 18 years old at the time this happened. The doctors said I had herniated disks in my lower back and neck. As well as some other cuts and bruises. Because I was so young and in good shape at the time, I was able to bounce back within a couple weeks of physical therapy and thought nothing of it.
As time went on however, the softball stopped and the more sedentary lifestyle kick in. Once this happened it seemed like the back pain and flare-ups never ended. About 5 years after my car accident I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Now if you have this disease you can understand the complexities of this condition. It made me miserable and my quality of life went straight downhill from there. I went from pain doctor to pain doctor, all with different drugs they wanted to treat me with.
Pain management programs, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychological therapy, water therapy, massages, acupuncture and I’m sure there is something I’m missing… Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? I finally ended up on Long Term Disability at the age of 30 years old. I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. This was not in the ‘Big’ thing I meant to do with my life.
So, I went off to change it. I did everything I could to try to find alternatives to the medications my doctors were feeding me on consistent, daily basis. Knowing full well that these medications were eating away at my stomach and kidneys. I started thinking throughout the years who knows what may become of them if I keep doing this to myself and started looking for alternatives.
After trying many, I have decided to start sharing my experiences in the hopes of helping others find help to make getting back to life a little easier. Over the past couple of years, I have been able to stop multiple medications since starting my journey into alternative medicine. Once I started realizing that it was not only what I did with or to my body but, it also has to do with your mind and I knew then I had to talk about it and bring it to people who really need it. Chronic Pain Patients, and the like, just like me. I now found my purpose.
