Hi, I am Satinee.
I was on Sparkpeople and took it very seriously, however life got really rough and I stopped logging in. I just didn't want to communicate with anyone. I was in a very dark place. I suffer from RSD/Chronic pain and sometimes it gets the best of me.

At times the pain made me want to stop living, but I knew there were more out there for me. I am 56 years young and had always been in great shape, but an serious car accident brought on my condition and made it hard for me to work out.

Well I am pushing pass the pain, went back to school (full-time plus working full-time) and got a paralegal degree with honors. I am due to go back to school in a little over a week for law (already completed a semester with honors (dean's list). I was inducted into the Paralegal Honors Society, Lambda Epsilon Chi.

Although, I live with pain and at times it gets me down, I decided I could live miserably in pain or I could fight through it!

What the pain did is made me take inventory of my life and where I was at in it. I decided I raised two boys, one 36 and one 19, each from a different marriage and I gave me life to everyone else but me. I knew before I left this world I wanted to have at least one degree and be satisfied with what I had accomplished.

Well this pain made me get up and take control of my life. It made me want to be as strong as I can be, so I exercise at least 5 time a week, I cleaned up my diet and am feeding my brain with knowledge.

Instead of the pain making me negative, which it did for a while, it has made me positive.

The pain made me do it!
