This Week’s Sexiest Selfies Ever
If you look reeeaaalllllyyyy close you can see wittle baby calve muscles coming in . It feels so good be active and healthy again. For those of you who don't know, I have chronic back issues. I was born with scoliosis and on top of that throughout my 21 years I've had two slipped discs, one ruptured, and a shattered tailbone . Because I'm still young and growing no surgeon is willing to work on me until I'm fully developed so my only option has been to take pain medication accompanied by epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks and medicinal marijuana. At my worst, I was prescribed to take 100mg of Oxycotin a day. Yes, I wrote that correctly. EVERY DAY. I woke up a couple weeks ago and told myself I couldn't keep taking this horrible medication so much no matter what the pain may be and fight through strengthening my legs so my back could be stronger and better supported. I've now reduced my medications significantly and while I feel the pain in my back a lot more so now, I'm still happier than when I was pain free. Why? Because I'm MYSELF again. I used to go to the gym every day but unfortunately for the past year I've hardly been able to run. It's been a long journey and for those of you living with a chronic condition you know what it's like to want more than anything to be active yet feel so imprisoned in your in body. So while to many of you my progress looks slow, keep in mind that there's always more to someone's story than you know. We all go through life dealing with something difficult so instead of all this hate going around on social media platforms and well, life in general, let's empower each other to strive and lead a happy life Hope everyone's having a good day!
