Four years ago on November 1st, 2014, I woke up to searing buttock, hip, and lower back pain. Little did I know that in the coming months the pain would spread from head to toe...literally. I spent almost 3 years in agony. I continued to work because I'm the main provider in the household. Most days, I sat at my computer watching the clock until I could go home to pace the floor and cry before falling exhausted into bed. Even bed wasn't a respite because I couldn't turn over on either side without tremendous pain. Depression and defeat had overtaken me and I was losing hope. You can read the details in "My Story." Then, I found this Wiki which led me to Sarno, Ozanich, Nichole Sachs, Curable, and many others. When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. I'm not completely pain free (yet). I'm a work in progress. But, I can shop, cook, play with my grandchildren, go to dinner with friends, and just returned from a wonderful trip to the beach. I have my life back. "Thank you" seems so small compared to what is in my heart. The selfless people on this Wiki have been my lifeline. I'm so very grateful to all of you.
