I'm really struggling, morning my new life, people say get well, get better soon, it isn't gonna happen, I'm tired of waking up, making it to the couch, just to lay down again, people say get up move around, well, that is easier said than done with Essential Tremors, it affects my whole body, so getting up and moving around isn't the issue.

I'm not the issue, the doctors, medications, etc, aren't the issue, the issue is I have a slu of medical issues, that the doctors r doing the best they can to treat, there comes a point and time u get tired of the hospitals, the meds, etc, at that time, u just need love, support, and care, I'm so so thankful I found this App.

I'm told to get up and move, quit thinking about it, quit talking about it, and it'll go away.

If that is the case, it should've went away a long time ago, because there r plenty of times I don't think about it, I'm so so thankful for finding this App where I feel accepted, loved and cared for.

Fighting #CRPS #RSD & Writing My Way Back to Life

One of the first things that fighting daily debilitating pain taught me was the need to find and hold on to hope. Writing is how I find hope, clear my mind and how I began to fight back against the pain. Without writing, I don't think I would have seen a way to stand during my storm.

Each piece of prose that I create (poetry, prayers, and essays) about the CRPS RSD struggle helps me realize that every moment in life is precious. I believe that we must learn to celebrate the good days as well as the difficult days, in order to understand the full purpose and beauty of our life. I hope that by sharing my thoughts others will gain strength to continue fighting too.
