PainShifter 6 week challenge
3 years ago I did something I never thought was possible. As a musician, the idea of turning emotional pain into art is not a foren concept to me, but never, in a million years did I think that physical pain could be transformed into something beautiful, let alone singing.
10 years ago I was diagnosed with a chronic illness that has no cure (Endometriosis)
Unfortunately, Endo women go through an average of 1 surgery every 2 years.
Personally, I have spent way too much time missing out on life, and way too much money on medications, physical therapy, doctors, yoga classes, acupuncture and massage therapists, that inevitably, did not provide pain relief for long, and did not prevent me from undergoing my first surgery in 2017.
After that surgery, I was determined to never go through that again. But unfortunately, day by day, my back and pelvic pain came back. There were times I couldn’t get out of bed because the pain was so bad. I had enough.
In one of those moments, after two excruciating failed attempts to stand up, I was laying in bed, staring at the ceiling. All I could do was accept the signals tearing through me.… and breath.
So, that's what I did. In and out, I followed those unbearable signals with every breath and began exploring. Breath by breath, vowell by vowell, I Eeeeed and Ahhhhed my way out of bed, back to life, and back on stage.
I used the knowledge and experience I had as a former professional gymnast, my love for yoga and the knowledge and experience I had as a professional singer to shift my pain bit by bit.
I could feel my spine realign and the inflammation go down, as the pain slowly shifted, moved and transformed into sound.
It took 4 hours to walk again, 10 days to sing freely again and 6 weeks to get back on stage
And it's been 3.5 years since my first, and last surgery. I did it. I beat the statistics and I showed up for my life.
