Product description...

Pain…JUST MAKE IT STOP

Like a snowball rolling down hill, once it started, I couldn’t stop it from growing and gaining momentum. Over the course of ten years, I went from strong female athlete to an OxyContin glazed mom in debilitating chronic pain. In 2010, my life came to an abrupt stop as my 36-year-old body started to break down. This story chronicles my deterioration from professional level mountain bike racer to mother who cannot get out of bed without her daily dose of Oxy. I am labeled a drug seeker. Only a very few doctors believe my pain is real. Once they discover the source, I walk you through the arduous process of healing, which includes bouts of dopesickness, spiritual rebirth through Shamanic experience and ultimately returning to mountain bike racing.

Today, I can tell you for certain, the journey, the pain, the fear and subsequently, the growth were all worth it. I share my life experiences every day. And not just with people in pain, with everyone. The lessons I outline in this book are not exclusive to those who are suffering. The human experience is defined by highs and lows. We all have them. It is what we do with them that matters.
