Hi, I’m Colby Triolo & what came to be known as ‘YouMakeYou’ saved my life…

I suffered for several years from severe Post Concussion Syndrome. I had to take a year off of school, I had a piercing headache for over 700 straight days, I lost many friends and family because I could hardly deal with social interaction, I could barely leave the house without pain. I saw countless doctors, went through endless procedures, and lost hope over and over again as nothing came of these things. I was told I would never truly function like normal. I would never run, or workout intensely again, I would never look at computer screens without pain, or even sit down without perfect posture in an attempt to put my head at ease. The list goes on.  And so did the days, it was endless.neckbrace

I thought that was going to be my life forever, and honestly– that was terrifying. I refused to let that happen. One day, I decided to take my life back– that was not what I wanted, so why should it be what I have. I essentially starting ‘re-programming’ my mind to end the power that the pain had over me. Even when I had constant pain, I refused to admit that I did to myself, I told myself I was fine and I started doing everything that I was told I should not: I started running, slumping when I sat, turning my head any which way I wanted to, etc. I simply removed the idea of pain from my life 110%, even though I still had it, and on March 30, 2015 I had my very first headache free day. From there on out, I have continued using the power of my mind and I now am a perfectly healthy and happy college student studying computer science engineering, and training for a marathon (two things I told would never be even imaginable for me).DSC_0084

The YouMakeYou mindset saved my life and if it can help even just one other person– that is the goal. I’ve created this online community to do just that. I hope what you see empowers you to empower yourself, because when you realize the power that you and your mind holds, the opportunities are endless.
