In April 2020, author Wael Ibrahim was struck with a sever slipped disc. Pinned to the ground for hours, then wheelchair-bound for months, he was unable to stand or even pay a visit to the toilet. The pain was excruciating, leaving him mentally and emotionally disturbed. Lost sleep led to agitation, frustration, and a sense of hopelessness that he had never experienced before.
For Wael, being in a state of constant physical and mental pain consumed him. He wanted to give up. But he discovered the strength to turn things around.
