Forgiving Myself

Sometimes I have a big problem. I can't forgive myself. I have very high expectations, and when I don't achieve my desired results, I will beat myself up about it. This could last for 48 hours, it could last for years. It could be a personal situation, or a work situation. The way my brain …

I’m a Fainter

Last weekend I fainted while sitting in a pedicure chair. An ambulance was called. My daughter was a rockstar (which is good, because I now know she can navigate a situation like that without freaking).

Cupping, Christmas, and Weights

Yes, let's talk about my back shall we? When I arrived at the Saint Mary's University Lifemark location, my RMT asked me the usual questions:  How are things?  What have you been up to? What are we working on today?  Welllllll... December is a hard month.  More so for those of us who suffer from …

The Things I Struggle With During Injury Recovery

I've Been Absent Photo courtesy of Bitmoji 🙂 I have found it hard to express everything I have been doing/feeling lately. It dawned on me that this is what I should right about. I haven't been unable to run for a bit.  I injured my left calf when I attempted to bolt out of the …
