This is the story of my journey with CRPS. Though I now know that I’ve had CRPS for the past 10+ years since my reconstructive surgeries to both legs, it’s only recently been diagnosed as such. While I’m grateful to have a name for the burning and pain, I’m also sad to see that there is no cure at this time. I hope that by sharing my story, those who love someone who has chronic pain (whether it’s CRPS or another disorder) will come to understand the experience more fully from the patient’s point of view and see how much we appreciate their care. For those who are in the fire directly (whether Survivors or those who love a Survivor), I hope you will join me in the firefight and not lose heart.
I also write at http://www.naturallygutsy.com about surviving multiple gastrointestinal disorders and doing so with a smile. 🙂 I believe that God will give me the strength to continue living and smiling through the pain for His glory and my ultimate good. I’m not alone, and neither are you.
Welcome, and thanks for reading.
