Anna was once a budding figure skater hoping to make it big. Since her teenage years, she had to train closely with partner Chris for 20 hours a week. Together, they made their mark in several amateur competitions and it didn’t take long for the partnership to blossom into love.
Just as talk of tying the knot loomed, Anna noticed something amiss. The veins in her legs were becoming more visible. And even when they grew increasingly lumpy, she continued to sidestep the problem.
Following a grueling training session at the skating rink one day, the veins appeared so nasty that she was reduced to tears. Though the pain was tolerable, the decision to stop skating was made, somewhat still convinced that it will go away after a restful break.
But sadly, it was to remain. And above all else, Anna’s confidence took a major blow.
