Lauren's Story

For more than a decade, my life was defined by an unrelenting battle with migraines. Two car accidents had thrust me into this relentless cycle of pain, leaving me feeling like a mere spectator in my own existence. Desperate for relief, I embarked on a seemingly endless journey through the medical world, consulting specialists from around the globe. Their collective wisdom and expertise, while earnest, couldn't resolve my pain.

The weight of my predicament pushed me to lean heavily on medication, an option that barely masked the pain and never truly solved the root of my suffering. Each day was an arduous slog to work against the pain and I saw no glimmer of hope on the horizon. More than an entire decade of my life had been lost to this unceasing agony.

A moment of serendipity, through an existing ABM client referral, brought me to Brady Anderson and the ABM program. It marked the beginning of a new chapter. Life-changing doesn't even begin to describe the transformation I experienced. Within a few weeks I was liberated from the grip of headaches and migraines, and it felt like waking from a long, harrowing dream. The return of mental clarity was like a breath of fresh air, and I marveled at my ability to live without pain, a sensation which I had long forgotten.

Professionally, my career blossomed as newfound vitality and well-being permeated every aspect of my life. But the true magic happened on a personal level. I discovered an enriched existence that I couldn't have imagined before. I didn't just set personal goals; I shattered them. I learnt to run! Then I learnt to run far! It has become my favourite hobby and something I absolutely treasure. Running 10k, then a half marathon, and finally a full marathon, a feat that had always seemed beyond reach, became a reality, thanks to ABM's running program.

My journey has been an emotional odyssey of pain, despair, frustration and ultimately, indescribable joy. ABM became the bridge to a life free from the relentless grip of migraines, and I am eternally grateful for this second chance at life. It's a reminder that even in the darkest hours, there can be a light at the end of the tunnel, waiting to shine brightly once more.
