If you could send a message to your younger self, what would it say?

Imagine if you could turn back the clock and offer guidance to your younger self, the person who first embarked on this journey with AxSpa.

We invite you to share your wisdom, insights, and heartfelt messages to your younger selves. What advice would you give? What encouragement would you offer? Whether it's about managing symptoms, coping strategies, or simply words of comfort, your message could resonate deeply with someone else facing similar struggles today.

  1. I would said buckle up buttercup cause you are going for a ride. Then I would tell her she’s not a hypochondriac like everyone says. Then tell her to get to doctors until u find out what’s wrong. And take care of ur body in the mean time.

    1. ,
      Good advice, we appreciate you sharing.
      It sounds like it been a challenging "ride".

  2. I would tell myself, enjoy the body you have now, because in 10 years, you wont recognise the person you are. Play all the sport, recover well, eat well and dont have a regret that you could have achieved something had it ot been for this horrible thing that will change your life forever

    1. - Great advice to your younger self - enjoy and cherish life and appreciate every moment in the present. Thanks for sharing. Rebecca (team member)

  3. Hmmm i would say, stay living in Hawaii!

    1. I'd tell myself that all the little things we brushed off to get medical care for. Get diagnosed don't give up and wait 50 years.. Also get an easy on the body job that makes money and save it because it's impossible to get disability.

    2. Thank you for sharing with us. This is great encouragement to tell your younger self. Sending you hugs and hoping today is a good day for you.

  4. Don’t listen to other people you know your body better than anybody else. I know swimming and water therapy was the best thing that I ever did from my body going through all this. All the other therapy they made me do riding a bike all the things hurt my body more than anything else when you do water therapy, you are weightless in the pool. You cannot hurt yourself around no better than I ever did when they told me I would never walk without any help. . Remember, listen to yourself you know your own body better than anybody else.

    1. I absolutely agree! Trusting your instincts and honoring your body's needs can guide you towards the best decisions for your health and well-being. What works for one person may not necessarily work for another. Recognizing this and finding what truly benefits your body is a journey of self-discovery and self-care. Your advice to your younger self reflects a deep understanding of your needs and the importance of prioritizing activities that bring relief and comfort. Thanks for sharing. Sending waves of comfort your way. Rebecca (team member)
