This Past Week!!

I know! I know! It’s been a while since my last post. It’s getting to the busy time in the year as any of you that have kids will understand. Its getting to that time of year where there seems like day and night there is something going on. As school comes to close for the year we have awards nights, and year end performances. I just have to try to control my stress level. This past weekend we had a family wedding to go to in a small town outside the city that we live in. My kids couldn’t stop dancing and as always enjoyed having a party with their cousins.

Over the past week I also managed to pick up a cold. So are those enough excuses for not posting for a while? I don’t have a lot of news to report as things with me really haven’t changed. Do I get the implant? Or don’t I get it? I would really like people opinions!! If you’ve had one because you have CRPS then leave me a post and tell me if it’s made a difference in your pain.

Last week I had the chance to do something that I’ve never done before. I was chatting with a friend Susan who has her own radio show, and she invited me to be a guest on her show. So on Thurs we got the chance to talk about what CRPS is, how it affects daily living, and much more. I just want to thank her for the opportunity to talk about what we go through daily, and for being a voice for those of us dealing with this. If you want to check out her site and radio show then you can go to my blog list and find her under Susan J Sohn in my blog list.

My pain as of late has been up and down but the fortunate thing is that I haven’t had any real bad flare-ups as of late. I’ve really been trying to control my stress as of late. At the wedding things started to get a little worse, however the rest of the weekend has been alright with nothing out of the ordinary.

Well this is going to be a short post that doesn’t have a lot to it, however I wanted people to know that I am still here. It’s just that my brain is congested from this cold not to mention that I have two sick kids as well. My wife is the only one standing now who doesn’t have it.

So for now I’m going to leave and get some rest. I would really encourage any of you that read my blog to leave some comments to let me know what you think of my blog or what you would like to see more of. I’m always open to positive and negative feedback so that I can make things more interesting to the reader. Anyway see you in a couple of days!!

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 and a half 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.
