Happily Quilting

Quilting makes life fun

Thoughts

My friend Kris's blog have a title, "So much to do, So little Time".  I have always loved this.  However mine is now called So much to do but to much pain.  I suffer from CRPS, a truly horrible thing.  I have had it now for 15 years, most of the time my pain is on a level of 1-3, bearable.  Periodically I have flareups, and I am in one now.  I have been laying on my couch for the past week.  I have had to cancel all my activities because when you can't walk its hard to do things.  Having had this for so long I can usually deal with the pain it's the not being able to do anything that is the mind bender.  I would love to be working on MQ7, I would love to be at my longarm but no I am immobile on the couch having a major pity party.   Then this morning my thoughts turned to the other people out in the QCA world who are also suffering and suddenly I did not feel so alone.  So to all of you out there who are suffering - you are not alone.  I hope relief is yours soon.

Thanks, Elizabeth, while I do not have anything drastic like CRPS(not sure what it is), I still have back aches, IBS and arthritis so I can understand how bad you feel, alot worse like me!  But you are so right, others are out here and you'll feel better soon, I know.  Prayers coming your way for some relief.

Believe me I know what pain is having been thru a car accident that almost took my life, but I'm still here. What is CRPS? I know what IBS and learned to control it with diet,but I also have arthritis and fibromyalgia. I'm feeling your pain. My prayers are for those in constant pain that includes you. Think positive...I found that to be the best policy next to prayer. Hugs.

CRPS, is Circutory Regional Pain Syndrom, a relativly rare disease.  It cause pain in the affected areas that do nor respond to pain meds as they are phantom pains.
