CRPS and Depression

I think its funny that people that don't have chronic pain, completely discount the fact that someone really does.  CRPS is an insidious creature, it has taken my left arm, atrophied it, sends pain throughout it and makes it just wonderful to go into public.  CRPS has given me the party that is spasms in the arm to the point where I have hit myself in the face.  CRPS has taken my body, my will and given me depression.

A Letter To People Without Chronic Pain.

This is a copy of a Note that Jessika Kochel had posted in reference to her Chronic Pain (CRPS / RSD).  I met Jessika and her husband while playing Mafia Wars actually, and during a conversation, I learned she too had CRPS / RSD.  Jessika was an advocate for CRPS /  RSD, and that is what is so impressive about her, despite being in the horrible pain she has, she wanted to explain what this disease really is.

It Cooled Down!

Joy of all joys, the temperature and humidity are obviously no longer conspiring against me.  Its actually in the upper 70's and the humidity is more than favorable.  I would doubt that it will last however, it is still August in the Midwest.

I didn't venture out until after 5:30P, but I at least didn't pass out from the oppressive heat.  What a welcome change!
