i have hope

Dec 16, 2016 3:10 PM

So, I've had chronic back pain for over four years now and now for the first time I'm hopeful! I received a back brace a couple of days ago and even though it says "only after 15 days of intensive use can you determine its impact and effectiveness", I haven't been in pain AT ALL (despite the regular discomfort) for two whole days!!!!!!

I think it's because the brace reminders me to sit up at all times and it takes the pressure off of my lower/middle back

BUT STILL I realized I've been really happy despite drama, stress, bad grades etc.

I don't care if this is just temporary, I'm happy and NOT IN PAIN which is the best this ever! I feel like I've regained strength to fight the pain and to go on with my life🙌💪💪

I'm happy to hear you've been pain free. I hope it continues.

Good for you! What brand is the back brace? I use to have one by AppleCore that helped a lot.
