"I Have Gotten Myself and My Life Back"
One year ago today (written June 2018), I started my healing journey with CFA. I could barely get up and down from the floor and cried during my first attempt at Burpees. My first box jump was over a line on the mat. I had been depressed and physically in pain for years. At 57, I thought my life was over. But I wanted to try…one more time. And I’m so grateful that I did. I am 110lbs freer, I have no symptoms of depression (in fact, I am joyful much of the time), I am social and outgoing again vs isolated, and my body is mostly pain-free.
I have gained so much: liberation from mental torment, physical wellbeing (I can now do full burpees and 12″ box jumps, to name a few milestones), a community and lifestyle that I love. Mostly, I have gotten myself and my life back, for which I am forever grateful.
