I haven’t been one to dabble in different religions throughout life, but whilst I attended Catholic Secondary College I accumulated much experience with the Catholic Church, and in my senior years my interest in the many differing religions brought me to undertake a subject called the Study of Religion.
Whilst I could always see the similarities between the array of religious and spiritual beliefs that inhabit our world, I always felt that they were only bringing part truths but perhaps missing something, or missing the whole.

The first time I experienced the pain and the debilitating effects of sciatica was towards the end of my third pregnancy, just before my 26th birthday. I didn’t know what had hit me, and the pain that would regularly run down my right leg made the last few months of my pregnancy extremely uncomfortable. I optimistically thought that when the baby was born the pain would go, but no; after bringing a 9lb 11oz gorgeous little boy into the world, it stayed.
With life then busier than ever, I now realise that I simply accepted the discomfort I was experiencing and gradually began to adjust my way of being to accommodate the pain, which very slowly became a part of me. I just got used to it being there and I found a way to continue to function, although at times it did become too much to deal with.

I would get teary when school sports or P.E classes would come around; I had to push myself to run as the impact would feel shocking to my body.

Despairingly I stood, thinking to myself “What am I to do? How can I do it?” I had already walked 50 metres from the car park and the shop where I needed to buy a few things for dinner that night was only another few metres along. I stood trying to decide whether the level of pain would allow me those few extra steps – but then the thought of having to actually walk around the shop as well as the steps back to the car saw the fortitude dissolve. Was I really listening to my body or was I giving up – giving in to the pain?
That was only a few months ago. Continue reading “Physical Pain and the Miracle of Esoteric Connective Tissue Therapy”
