I’m Having A Tough Day!

First of all I have to apologize to everyone for the length of time between post. I’ve been trying for a few days to put this together but it’s been busy and I haven’t been feeling my best as of late. It was a busy week and because of that I’m sure that’s why I’m not feeling as good. My pain as well as some of the other symptoms have been worse and so I’ve needed to slow things down a bit. The last few days the pain at the various surgery sites where the surgery had been done has been bothering me, so that has probably set things off as well.

I don’t know why but for one reason or another this post has been really difficult to put together. One of the reasons is that I’ve been very foggy in the head the last few days and it makes things a lot more difficult to put together. It’s the reality of this disease though and I’m not prepared to let it slow me down and stop me from overcoming CRPS. Without a doubt the implants have helped no question! However they aren’t a cure and I’m still going to have days where I find it hard, and today is one of those days.

I’m having a hard time with my concentration today and trying to put together a sentence. However I’m bound and determined not to let this disease defeat me. This is where I dig in my feet and fight even more so that I can win this battle. According to the word of God I have already won this battle and so I find strength in those words. I have come too far and taken back too much to be defeated now.

The message is pretty simple today, and so I’m telling you I’m having a tough day. We live with a disease that sees us up one day and down the next. I’ve made a choice in all of this not to stay down and defeated but to rise up against all of this and show you that it can be beat. You need to know that that none of this would be possible without having God do all the work that He’s done in my life. Tough days are going to happen along the way on your journey as well, and you have to soldier through them and then start moving forward again. I look forward to the day that I can write that one post that says I have no pain, and that I have full use of my limbs again!

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.

    Ross, I love your attitude!! I think that’s the key to living with chronic disease/illness. You may have bad days and life is more often than not a struggle, but it’s all about ATTITUDE!
    That’s possibly the biggest thing I have learned from my own diseases & ilnesses… and I probably needed to learn through this adversity. When life is easy, it’s very easy to become complacent and to lose sight of how blessed we really are. Keep smiling!! :)
