Find The Positive In Your CRPS

Well summer is almost half over and so far things have been going pretty well. Next week I leave to go so my family and friends out in Vancouver, and spend some time relaxing and of coarse take more pictures. I can hardly wait to see the look on some of my family members faces when they see me walking without my cane! As well I’ve lost 30lbs so I’m going feeling good about how I’m looking and feeling for a change.

So much time with our illness is spent telling family and friends about all the things that have gone wrong with our bodies. It feels good to say that things are on the upswing for a change. Sure I’m still fighting my CRPS but there has been more good rather than bad happening as of late. As each day goes by my ankle feels stronger to walk on. I’m still managing pain in the ankle but what’s huge to me, is that it’s manageable for the first time in a long time. I take things day by day and don’t push things to hard. Without a doubt I also thank God for the healing that He has given my ankle.

When I look at all I’ve been through over the last 6 years I finally have something REALLY! REALLY! good to write about. When I first started writing this blog I was hanging on by my fingertips. Each day was a real fight to get through, and I had lots of doubts as to when this was going to end. I’ll be honest with you in saying I had a hard time thinking it was ever going to end! The reason though I’ve made it so long is because of my faith. That faith is the reason that I know the end is coming.  As each day has gone by He gives me the strength to turn any negative into a positive. Believe me when I say all you have to do is ask Him for any of your needs.

As I slowly put back pieces of my life that have been missing for a long time there is a void that’s beginning to be filled. I’ve remained strong in my faith from the beginning and now I’m starting to see God put those pieces of my puzzle back into place. Honestly I can’t remember the last time that I let my emotions get the better of me. Every challenge is met head on! I’m pretty happy at the moment and with the pain under control I’m even happier. So with that being said I’m going to go and get more great shots to share with everyone.

About Ross

My name is Ross and I want to welcome you to my site. I'm married to an amazing woman who is my best friend, and my soul mate all rolled up into one! I am the father of two very special girls who we adopted from China & Ethiopia. Together we make up one very multicultural family! In 2006 my life was turned upside down when I was diagnosed with CRPS/RSD. It was the start of a journey I never could have expected, and one that I couldn't fight without God. CRPS is a chronic pain disease and it started in my left hand. I lost mobility of my hand and started to experience pain unlike I ever could have imagined. Not to long after my left ankle became affected. I spent the better half of about a year not knowing what was going on in my body and traveling from doctor to doctor to find a diagnosis. As time went by I started learning more about CRPS and all its symptoms that it brings with it! As I started to learn more about CRPS I felt the growing need to share the information I was learning with others and to raise more awareness. As well I want this to be a place where we can connect and support one another. So I would encourage you to contact me if you want.
