Hey my name is Ros and this is my first day of the programme. Im excited about starting this programme because I have tried everything to get rid of my back pain and I thought surgery might be my only option left. A lot of what i have read makes sense to me because i feel that my circumstances in the last 2 months have gotten more tense and stressfull and at the same time so has my back pain. But I am also finding it hard to accept that I could get rid of this all by myself. As soon as i think about doing anything physical, my mind automatically gets a sense of fear, this is very hard for me to overcome but im gonna giv it a Go!
