I am a recovering nonprofit professional who, after becoming suddenly medically disabled in 2017, began working in the digital space. I am now an author as well as being a content and community engagement specialist for BackerNation.
I have had three neurosurgeries from December 2018 - October 2019. My diagnoses include degenerative disc disease, myelopathy (spinal cord injury,) osteoarthritis, and piriformis syndrome (contributing to chronic sciatica.) I am very familiar with nerve and muscle pain. I have spent the last three years of my life learning how to best honor my body and control my discomfort as much as possible while moving forward with rehabilitation.
You can learn more about me and my personal story at Nerdzillakelly.com. I hope that you'll join me in the support groups, especially the Sciatica and Piriformis group as well as the Spinal Fusion support group.
