I am BACK!!!!

Hi all;
It seems I took a year and a half off!!! I'm sorry!! I have been doing so so well with RSD/CRPS. Pain has been under control and much much lower then it ever was.
A lot of changes have occurred in my life. Very big life changing experiences. I know that I am in the right place and on the right path.....


I just recently started thinking again and realizing that I do need to continue to write this blog and help people. Even if I just help one person..... I have helped someone. 

I remember when I was first diagnosed I felt so alone. It was awful. Friends and family didn't "get it." No one had any idea what was happening to my life.
I researched and researched and found some amazing drs and treatment ideas that changed my life for the better.

One thing that saved me was an attitude adjustment. Being positive has made the world of a difference. I was forced to have pain so I could be miserable or enjoy my life and deal with the pain. So I chose to live and live a life as full as possible.
Just like that amazing group RSD/CRPS doesn't own me!
Damn straight it doesn't.

Much love

Natalie

Vertigo

Ugh!!!!
3rd Bout with Vertigo since 2002....
It's back again. Survived the holidays with it, but would have enjoyed them without.... *** sigh***
10 days in. One time it lasted a week or two I think.
Last time about 6 weeks.
I'm so hoping this is almost gone. Today is the worst day so far:S although everyday it changes.....
Anyone else experienced Vertigo who has RSD/CRPS???
Just curious....

Holidays are almost upon us!

It is ALMOST that time of year again. Time for holidays, family, warmth, fun, hot chocolate, quality time and gifts! I am excited for Christmas this year! So my pain levels are a lot better and a lot more tolerable this year. I had a few sessions with Michelle Vickers who helped me do a soul connection that has changed my pain levels for the positive. I rescued a dog. He is a Husky/German Shepherd and adorable. Today I took him on a run through the woods near our home. He gets really, really hyper if he doesn't get his exercise. A cross between both being a puppy and his breed. He is bringing a lot of joy to our lives.
We have a "Real" free this year as said puppy was trying to eat all of the mini lightbulbs on the fake tree. The aroma of the real tree is amazing actually. We had snow for awhile, but none recently.... All has melted away. The cold on my lungs was crazy today though. Sharp and painful. The mental benefits awesome!
Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season.
Hang in there
Love Nat

Amazing Things ARE Happening!!!

I have been doing something different since the beginning of July 2012. I was not looking for a spiritual answer. I was looking for some pain relief and honestly at this point, just about ready to try almost anything.
An old acquaintance, Facebook and curiosity all cumulated into an amazing adventure. After one session, I was on about half the meds and living life a little bit fuller and even missed my coveted Lidocaine Infusion. I simply forgot.....
I am in no way, shape or form associated with or benefiting from this recommendation.
Call or Email Michelle. If its anything like my experience, you can thank me later.

Weird Photos

So I can't feel most of the pain in my legs and feet anymore. Thank god.
After an epidural, in 2008 I lost a lot of feeling.
Clearly there is still a problem.....

"RENT"

My favourite musical since I was 17 was put on at the Panasonic Theatre by Theatre Sheridan! My almamater!!!
Jonathan Larson's "RENT."
It is an amazing musical about life, love, friendships and living in the present moment and forgetting regret.
It was amazing!
This was the track I was on before getting RSD/CRPS! To be a professional performer. I was even at a prestigious school practically guaranteeing me a career in my chosen field. Then RSD....
I am now inspired yet again to make a run at some kind of performing career. It is and has always been what I should be doing.
Today I make the step forward to lose weight, get pain under control and try to get a talent agent within the year.
I am on my way up, I don't know how, but I WILL be famous an have a career doing what I love!!!!
