It was like coming home…

I’m Tirus and I’m a beginner witch from Sweden and I’m 45 years old.

I have always felt like there is something missing in my life but I have never been able to put my finger on it.

Two years ago I was in a car accident and hurt my back. I developed long term pain that got worse and worse, even though my body should have healed. It’s the same pain a Fibromyalgia (but I don’t have that).

My life got dark and I lost all the joy, everything was pain until I attended a course in pain management in November last year. There I learned physical therapy, psychology and learned how to use mindfulness as a way of coping with the pain. They also told us to find things that made us happy in order to expand life around the pain with positive and nice feelings. Somehow I one day ended up here at Spells8 and it was like coming home :blush::heart:.
