MY STORY Pt 1: Realisation

Despite my lifestyle at this time I still saw myself as the fit, healthy and sporty person I once was.

The problem was, I wasn’t that person anymore and although I didn’t know it at the time, my body was broken and trying to tell me that things were not right.

Every time I participated in these activities I suffered from back pain and excruciating sciatica during or immediately after. The pain could last up to 3 or 4 days at times.

My GP prescribed me more painkillers and life went on.

Things continued like this for a few years after university and whilst I was living and working in London.

I finally had the realisation that I had become an unhealthy person and if I wanted things to change I needed to take drastic action and quick!
