"Learn what truly caring for yourself means, physically and emotionally, you will save yourself decades of pain and deception"

I have always been a very active person, which led to pain as time went on. I pushed through the pain and tried to hide it from everyone. Eventually my knees got so bad that I was incapacitated and fell in a stairwell. That is when I decided enough is enough. I received a bilateral knee replacement. After the procedure I was determined to recover as quickly as possible so I could get back on the tennis court. Now I am back to playing competitive tennis, riding a bike, and playing football with my son. I am no longer in pain.
