So I’ve realised it takes a village to build you up and make you feel confident but it’s often just the one person that can bring that confidence crashing down!

With unimaginable pain …

And as the steroids ended and my body struggled to fix itself I understood what pain and starting over truly felt like. Steroids made me relearn how easy it is to take our body for granted. The simplest thing like taking a straight step became a chore and my body hurt in places I didn’tContinue reading “With unimaginable pain …”
