How is everyone doing?

For me, one day at a time is best for me. I have had this condition this September 24 years. Been on a pain management program since 2004.

It's been a long long time and that program is still doing well for me.

So...

How are you guys?

I thought it was a good question to ask, especially so close to and around the Holidays.

I'm here! I'm doing ok - much like you, one day at a time. I have only had this for about 1 1/2 years now so it's still very much a learning experience in terms of what does and doesn't set it off. I am lucky to have a great pain management team.

Stable for me! I've had CRPS since September 11, 2009 so just over a decade now.

I have a daily 3 hour therapy regimen that I do every day without fail. I credit this regimen to my stability. This regimen includes 15 minutes of mindfulness meditation which has been quite helpful...not in reducing the pain, but in helping how I process and handle pain.

While CRPS has been by far the most difficult health issue of my 61 years, when you can call CRPS "stable", I think most of us would consider that a big win!

I'm hangin' in there.

I can do almost anything given enough time.

It can be hard to keep a good attitude but I can even do that with enough time.

It's been 21 years now. The RSD seems to be retreating from parts it had won but that's no real relief.
