Before I start rocking October, I want to share why this September is one I will always remember…….
I walked with purpose
Until earlier this year, I wasn’t able to walk long distances. However, with my pain management plan doing such a fantastic job of lowering my chronic pain and inflammation, I am able to participate in walks like the one I did on Sept. 22nd.
The first walk I chose to raise money for was one that reminded me that there is always hope. Six years ago before I implemented the lifestyle and pain management changes that I detail in my eBook Make Pain Your Bitch: How to Dominate Your Chronic Life, I was ready to end my life…..
Thankfully I didn’t, because although I couldn’t see it at the time, there was hope and there was a better life ahead of me….
On this day, I walked for those who feel hopeless, in remembrance of those who lost their lives to depression, and to those who are left behind trying to figure out how to go on without their loved ones.

I went on a hike
Until last Saturday, all my walking excursions have taken place on concrete or sand. In fact, this wasn’t just my first hike since becoming chronically ill 20 years ago, it was my first hike EVER!!!!
I still can’t believe that I trudged through dirt trails and made my way up and down hills without falling and landing in donkey poop.
What made this hike even more special is that I talked my friend into getting up early and joining me. We had such a fabulous time and love the workout that our bodies received so much that we plan to do it again.
I visited Disneyland every week
I was at Disneyland once and sometimes twice a week all throughout the month. This is something that I my body would never have been able to handle throughout my entire chronic life.
I not only went to the park, but the exception of a couple of visits, I drove myself each time!!!!
Not one of these reasons to remember this September would have been possible if it weren’t for how well Oska Pulse addresses my chronic pain from fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, degenerative disc disease, and abdominal adhesions.
