Can I Ever Catch a Break?

Maybe not a break (that's what started this CRPS thing), I think I really mean some good fortune.  I woke up today and while I was a bit groggy still I went into the bathroom and I proceeded to hit my arm on the doorknob. 

Ordinarily that wouldn't be a big deal, but when the doorknob you hit and is as sensitive as my left arm (the arm with CRPS) is, I got sick to my stomach and had to lay down until the throbbing stopped.

Nice way to start the day off.

Crappy Day Part 360,337

Nice weather isn't it?  I wouldn't know, Mother Nature turned on me today and whilst outside for a whopping five minutes, my arm began to swell and throb.

The Weather Outside is... Frightful?

Kind of.  The temperature for me is ideal actually (its been in the 60's the past couple of days), but its a tad bit chilly for summer.  I shouldn't complain, it will be warm again soon, I would guess it would be more like hot and nasty so the intolerable pain will become even more intolerable.

Hard Day

As if CRPS isn't bad enough on its own, I had to make it worse.  Today while my wife was reorganizing some things around the house,I hurt myself.  Again.

I am so not looking forward to tonight, its hot and I'll be in amongst tons of people.  I'm guessing this one is really gonna hurt.  I get pain flares when my arm is hit or sometimes even brushed up against.  The flares almost feel like I have lit my arm on fire and tried to put it out with more fire.

The pain today is about an 8 out of 10.
