Let’s get in touch!
What’s up, I’m Sarah and my struggle with chronic pain has led me to you. Here is my story. I was a Crossfitter and weightlifter. I graduated from nursing school in 2017, working nights as a Registered Nurse. But one evening while driving to work, I got hit by a vehicle who was not paying attention to the lights. As he ran the yellow flashing light, I was T-boned at 40mph and suddenly my car spun in a circle in the middle of the intersection. This car accident happened on 11/1/18. This crash has impacted my life forever.
Do you suffer from chronic pain? Millions do and you are not alone. Chronic pain has affected my physical, mental, and social well being bringing depression and isolation. I attend physical therapy twice weekly, several doctor appointments, get weekly massage, and see a therapist every week. Eventually I had to quit working as a Registered Nurse due to the severe neck and back pain and right arm nerve pain that I experience everyday. I have not touched my Olympic bar at home since my car crash. I continue to work hard towards being able to Crossfit and weightlift again. My passion for snowboarding and being active is lost too. Everyday, I am fighting this battle!
Despite of everything, this tragedy brought me to create my very own Youtube channel (Sarah Chicharro) and Blogging website (sarahchicharro.com) so I can show you my raw journey. I upload three videos on my Youtube channel and post written entries weekly on my Blog. I also upload often on my social media apps of everyday life.
I love meeting chronic pain sufferers and chatting with those who are going through this difficult time. Most people will not understand chronic pain if they do not experience it personally. I want you to know that you are not alone. I want to listen to you. I believe suffering from chronic pain is one of the MOST *difficult things in this world.
Credentials: Bachelor of Science in Psychology 2009, Bachelor of Science in Nursing 2018.
