I am a professional Yo-Yo. I competitively swam my entire life and never learned how to eat right. I suffer body image issues like so many people. I am 36 years old.

Below is what I have mostly in my Thoracic Spine (bra line of spine)
Degenerative Spine Disease
End-plate Sclerosis,
Anterior Bone Spurs,
Osteoarthritis.
bulging disc
Lordosis in the Lumbar Spine
Hemangioma:
(A spinal hemangioma is a primary, benign tumor most common in the thoracic and lumbar spine. . This type of tumor typically affects the vertebral body, but also can affect muscles. The tumor has few symptoms, and is often found on examination for another condition. It is most common in patients aged 30-50. Hemangioma patients are closely watched for signs of compression fractures, neurologic dysfunction or the development of a soft tissue mass as a result of the hemangioma.

On top of that I am blessed with Fibromyalgia/CFS(chronic fatigue), put that together like a sandwich and I have depression on the side. I hide it well, I am funny and loving and would give the shirt off my back to those I love. I am married and happy, we have 3 wonderful boys and we are huge outdoors people. I was told by a neurosurgeon that the only option for me was to drop off 50 lbs.

So you see, it's not only about my self-image, my self-esteem, it's about my spine.

My spine hurts.

    Our lives are not determined by what happens to us,
    but by how we react to what happens,
    not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.
    A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts,
    events and outcomes.
    It is a catalyst, a Spark that creates extraordinary results.

    Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it.

    "May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”

    There's a lesson in everything we do, if we just have eyes to see it. It's not what happens to us that matters as much as how we take the experience and make something of it.
