This group is for anyone who needs a little accountability and encouragement to help them stick to their fitness goals.

I know my body well. In fact, I know better than any test or doctor.

Does the thought of taking a summer vacation get you excited or does it send chills down your spine? I loved traveling before I became chronically ill. In addition to yearly Disneyland vacations, I loved exploring new areas in other states or within the ones that I lived in. Weekend road trips without a destination were my favorites.
Soon after chronic pain became a part of my daily life I began to loathe traveling.
