What’s New!

Well I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day! It’s been a few extra days and I’m sorry about that. I’ve had a few hard days mixed in with a few days where time just didn’t allow for me to update. The great news is that after six weeks I’m able to drive again! So it’s back to being the shuttle to and from school for the kids. I’m still having problems sitting but I’m hopeful that over time that will go. I’m due in the next week or two for my follow up with the neurosurgeon and at the implant clinic where I’ll talk to them about the issues that I’m still having. Overall though slowly things are getting better!

So in today’s post I’ve just decided that today just has to be one of those days that I just don’t talk all that much about my health. In my last post I had let you know that I was hoping that this week would be the launch of my new Etsy shop that will be selling my photography. I’m still hoping that it will happen later this week, but I’m having trouble getting a couple of things into place. I’m hoping this will happen in the next day or two but if it doesn’t then next week will be the opening. So keep checking back because it’s going to be a great addition to my site. I hope people like what they see in the shop! I was looking through my pictures in archives today and came up with a few to post so here you go.

Another first that will be happening on my site is that I will be hosting my first ever giveaway. I don’t often do giveaway’s here but I thought that it was about time that I did a little something for all of you. So I will be giving away a free copy of “My Memory Suite” a digital scrap-booking software by My Memories. If you want to check out their site ahead of time please go to their site at www.mymemories.com and take a look at all of the great things they have. So stay tuned for details on that as I’ll be posting the ways that you can enter.

A couple of posts back I had mentioned that I thought it would be a great idea to start something called Testimony Tuesday. Well I would really like to start something like this but I don’t have anybody’s stories as of yet. I know that this is a very personal thing that I’m asking of people, but it only has to be as personal as you want it to be. I still think that when we are open that it helps us come together, helping us to relate to one another. Are you suffering from Chronic Pain? Do you have a story that you want to share with others to encourage? I’ll throw it out there and ask anyone who wants to get involved to contact me via my site email and I’ll fill you in on the details. See everyone next time!

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.

    I hope you continue to improve and can sit better soon.
    And I hope you get lots of stories for your Testimony Tuesdays.

    Testimony Tuesdays sounds like a great idea. Apart from the coming together more because of open-ness, etc, I believe it’s also good to hear the stories of others battling chronic pain and how they cope from day to day and remain sane. It can be a source of great encouragement, inspiration, support and hope.
    I am happy to be involved. You have my email now so feel free when you are up to it to send me the info.

  3. Glad to hear things are better. And good luck with your Etsy shop. A great site!
