Hey everyone, you may have noticed I haven’t been posting on here as much recently. A lot of life stuff has come up for me recently that I’ve had to deal with…
And I realized, my SI joint saga has taught me so much.
For so long, I felt something no one else could feel, and no one else seemed to believe…
- “What if you just decided to exercise anyway, even if it hurts? What’s the worst that could happen?”
- “The SI joint can’t really move… the ligaments are way too strong.”
- “I have other patients with the same issues as you… they don’t seem to have as much trouble as you.”
These are all thing people said to me over the course of my saga. And now, they’re all things my coaching clients have heard.
People aren’t trying to be mean when they say these things. But this is what they say, when they don’t understand.
I had to chart a course when no one other person could provide me with the answers.
When so many other people— friends, family, medical professionals— just didn’t get it.
Of course, I did meet some really great people along the way, who I couldn’t have done it without.
But I’m the one who had to chart a course, and put various strategies and techniques together, when no one else seemed to understand or believe me.
If anything, I wish I’d done it sooner. I had so much self-doubt at the time, it kept me from pursuing answers at full speed.
Now I know I was right. The self-doubt was only slowing me down.
This isn’t to say it’s easy, of course, or that you should expect to be able to figure it overnight.
It’s a process. Be methodical, be scientific. But never stop believing in yourself.
I’m sharing my roadmap here, to help you get to this place faster.
Always believe it’s possible.
