My name is Allison, I am 30 years old and live in Ontario Canada. My current diagnoses include Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1: Primarily Cold, Spinal Stenosis, Scoliosis, Degenerative Disc Disease, and Failed Back Surgery Syndrome. Prior to my being a hot mess, I enjoyed running, cycling, attending concerts,playing washer-toss, and spending time with my husband Aaron.
I am not my diagnoses. I am strong and yet weak. I am positive and yet at times I just want to break down and give up. I have hope, but I am a realist. I won’t lie to impress others or to ensure they remain comfortable. I am who I am love me or hate me.
I hope to be able to shed some light on the hell I live in and how strong us CRPS Warriors really are.
