  • Sitting on the Fitball

My name is Soula, and I literally fell into the land of pelvic chronic pain – specifically Pudendal Neuralgia (PN), on March 1, 2007 when a fitball I was sitting on burst and I fell to a concrete floor. At the time, I was working at ooi, my art & design studio that I run with my husband Theo.

Since 2007, I’ve learned alot about chronic pain – especially that you can manage it. I want people to learn from my experience because I believe my ongoing chronic pain could have been avoided. I was undiagnosed for 4.5 years and that was THE biggest trigger to my chronic pain experience.

You’ll need to learn alot about yourself and make some serious changes to your life (hopefully temporary and minimal) in order to be the best possible version of the new you.

And more specifically about my grandmother (Giagia) and her lifestyle in Maroni. I've visited Cyprus four times – each time without pain! I really love mum's village Maroni, it's beautiful. I always make a point of walking around the whole village when I visit so am very familiar with its nostalgic, stony, dry characteristics. I love the feeling of my feet on the ground in Maroni – not sure what that is. Perhaps a memory...

Life, Stitched Back Up Again

February 13th, 2021|Tags: , , , , |

Everything that chronic pain had undone in the first nine years of this 14-year nightmare, Theo and I have managed to finally mend. Stitch by stitch, we made a new house, founded a new livelihood, purchased a more comfy car, made new friends, welcomed a different breed of fur child and all of this in a new (unfamiliar) town. It's a rebirth! All of this, driven by the hunt for pain management after a ball pop, drop and a bang. Or was it...?
