"What are you twelve"
Yeah on a scale of one to ten bye
So I was explaining to this hot guy who asked why I’m in a wheelchair what CRPS is today and he asked me how I got it and I was all like “A lacrosse ball to the back of the that landed me in this chair.” and my psych professor over heard and stunned was all like “THATS WHY YOU’RE IN A WHEELCHAIR???” having not heard the rest of the explanation, which I then had to give to her. CRPS life is weird man.
Living with a chronic illness means waking up after a full nights rest, feeling like you never went to bed in the first place.
Doing a presentation on CRPS is so hard to do in just 15 minutes. Like what information is necessary and easy to understand? How do I keep said information succinct enough to stay within time constraints and still thoroughly inform my audience of this terrible disease? How do make them understand the gravity of my condition without evoking pity (or icky “you’re so inspirational” comments)? Also how to make it visually interesting without taking away from the information? UGGGH why couldn’t I have a more well known condition then I could speak about one little faction of it. But of course I have the thing no ones heard of so I have to generally inform them. Thank god I got picked for the second speech date and don’t present till this coming monday, I’ve had more time to sift through these dilemmas. I also can use my moms computer to practice with my presentation up on the TV. I’m going to print out little things for everyone to take home with them with the link to the RSDSA and where they can donate.
Wish me luck, all goes well 21 more people will be properly informed about CRPS and some of them may make donations.
You’ve got a friend in me.
This is so lovely
