Hello! First I would like to thank everyone who came out to my first fundraiser this past Saturday! You helped me reach my first small goal, I could not have done it without all your support! I’m very grateful to you all!
Yesterday was a rough day for me. I woke up and my body was burning and my leg was throbbing. It took me 10 minutes just to sit up in my bed. I got frustrated after trying for five minutes. I just didn’t feel like doing anything.
Once I was finally able to get up and walk, I started my day. That’s what happenes when you have a chronic illness. You try and live a “normal” life and do what you have to do. So I did my school work, which took forever becuase typing when your hands feel like they are on fire is no fun. Then I did my chores and tried to not focus on the pain.
It’s very hard to go through everyday and act like I feel perfectly okay. Especially when I feel like I’m dying. I try and stay positive but, it gets more difficult every day. Even though it was a bad pain day, it turned into a good day overall!!!
It was my last day of physical therapy till the next time I go back to the doctor here in a few weeks. I can walk with my cane and use my wheelchair for long distance or when I’m going to be on my feet for a long time. So I’ve gained almost all my strength back since my episode of paralysis! I’ve worked my butt of for the past 4 months and it payed off!
When I got home I felt worse and just layed in bed, thinking about my future. I think about it a lot. With a chronic illness like mine I have no idea what it will be like tomrrow, let alone in 2 years when I graduate. I do know, regardless of what happens, I’ll do whatever it takes to make my future a good one!
Than you for all the support, thoughts, and prayers! If you have any questions about CRPS or AMPS please leave a comment down below!🧡
