I’m new here!
Hi, my name is slothyspoonie. I've been diagnosed with
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome at 14 thru CHOP and Fibromyalgia at 11- I'm currently 24, and have known nothing but pain all my life for the past two decades (I can remember a time before all the pain I think I was 2 and 1/2 in a high chair eating Cheerios watching "jojo's circus" -I've only had two remissions in my lifetime (first around 7yrsold for a year and then at 15 for my first two years of highschool), but the heavy trauma did not help- however after I escaped my toxic household at 13- I was able to focus more on navigating healthcare for myself and with my mom -who's been sick my whole life(autoimmune and had a severe car accident at 19) so getting diagnoses and fighting and advocating for myself has been a lifelong journey with us both, and I want to never stop learning and sharing. To trade knowledge if you will, because my growth I owe entirely to my compassion and comprehension that has cultivated via patience I learned through pain and experiences I have the preverling- I love meeting new people and hearing new stories swapping what I learned with another's experiences, we're all here for a reason and deserve to be here whether to learn from another's actions+ that were horrible , or to spread the kindness instilled in some, because I learned that my favorite people are usually the ones that suffer the most... stay safe out here and nice to meet you guys!!
