I am Jo. I was generally a happy, positive person at age 31, the doctors told me I have chronic back pain. This is due to a disc prolapse, which isn’t worth a discectomy (a disc removal operation), or worth ‘trimming’ off. I am still mostly happy and positive, but as chronic pain sufferers reading this will know, that becomes more of a challenge to maintain.
I entered the blogging world for the first time, because I wanted to share some of the knowledge I’ve accrued about back health, – from posture and muscle names, to remedies and proactive, inner healing methods, – in case it helps anyone else out there, as well share the positive things my body has been teaching me. And also as a means to explore and better understand the connection between my mind and body.
Now I’m 32, and I haven’t really succeeded in doing that, so now it’s more of a space for sharing my poems. I hope you enjoy them and feel free to comment!
