One day I woke up with a swollen toe and within 2 weeks I could barely walk. 9 months later I was bed-ridden. It took numerous doctors, visits, and tests to determine that I had Psoriatic Arthritis! 21 pills later, I was able to walk again. (Sort of.) Eventually, I found a drug combination, which I'm still on today, that allowed me to function again. And all with only periodic pain. It was a miracle! The only caveat was that during much of this time I had been on a steroid, and had gained over 80 lbs. A friend suggested that I try CrossFit, and after my first session, I was hooked! Granted, I was in pain, but it was muscle soreness, not joint pain. After about 18 months of training, I lost 80# and I decided that I needed to understand more about this fitness phenomenon that gave me my life back, and got my CrossFit Level 1 certification. Not only has CrossFit given me new life, but it has given me the strength in not only my body but my mind as well. And the added bonus of a whole community of like-minded individuals that are ready and willing to support and lift you up when you need it most. Welcome to #InversionNation!
