  • My Story

    My story (briefly): I was a marathon runner and had run 5 marathons including 2 Bostons within 5 years. I was in an unhealthy relationship and struggling with an eating disorder when I developed severe left ankle pain. This led to left calf pain, hip pain, low back pain, mid back pain, some neck pain here and there, you name it. I saw every practitioner under the sun, started meditating, stopped running, stopped doing yoga, stopped dancing, pretty much stopped all physical activity. I got out of my unhealthy relationship and got to a healthy weight and fairly healthy mindset but the pain persisted. Yes I am a perfectionist. Yes I am a high achiever..

    Fastforward 6 years, finally read Dr. Sarno's book. Relief after about 1 week for my chronic left leg symptoms. I have been running consistently the past 10 days or so with minimal pain until yesterday. My mom visited and I know she is a trigger for me because she struggles with pain too. I was also fearful I had been running too much. Bam - pain is back, and this time in the other leg. Naturally I'm having a bit of a hard time quieting the fear response because it's in a new location and "shouldnt' that mean it's structural?" However, the disproof of that is my left leg (which had been chronic) is 100% FINE! for the first time in 6 years! Wild!

    Keeping on, refusing to monitor the pain.

    Good luck to all on this journey.

    Introduction:
    I've had success reading Dr. Sarno's book, recently encountered a setback, and am looking for support.
