It was Summer 2015, I was hunched over in my cubicle in so much pain; I was unable to sit up straight. Not ideal as I was also at work, ya know, my first “big-girl”, postgraduate office job. This moment is something I can visually, mentally, physically, and emotionally go back to as it was one of the three big pivots for me in becoming who I am and what led to what I am doing today. That 23-year-old version of me that was an overachiever, a people pleaser, and had no boundaries was about to learn what using her voice meant, especially after 4 years of misdiagnosis and no guidance in what her body was communicating.
