So how do you write a blog when you are newly disabled with it not being depressing or suicidal?

I decided a few days ago that I wanted to start a blog. Something that other people with CRPS/RSD could read and get “something” out of it, whether it was just a “Oh wow, that’s how I feel” or something inspirational to help through those days that just feel like utter poop!.

I spent hours setting up the blog to find that when it came to the crunch I had no idea what to write, that my feelings of being somewhat newly disabled were too raw, lonely and too personal and that the only people I would want to share that with would be people going through the same thing and NOT my family or friends.

My name is Sharon and I am a 40’s something solo mum to a beautiful teenage boy Jacob. I developed CRPS in September 2011 and diagnosed a year later. I have CRPS in my left hand (dominant) wrist, hand and forearm. I live in Brisbane Australia… please read on 🙂

    It is very difficult to pull yourself out of a black hole that has no end in sight; only an opening that you stumbled upon without knowledge or awareness…if only we had a crystal ball for every ‘tomorrow’ we were about to encounter.

    Some of the hurdles in our lives are not necessarily physical, they encompass our emotions, our sense of ‘being’, our souls and our spirit; a spirit which has been broken time and again from the core, but a false spirit we endeavour to portray to the outside world for fear of disbelief…

    As a friend of twenty something years’ Sharon, please believe me when I say I could never understand or comprehend the anguish you must face day in day out, or the simple emotion of ecstasy on one of those rare wonderful days you feel devoid of pain.
    I do know what it feels like to be suffering internally. To not be able to express your true ‘self’…to feel less than the person the world perceives you to be, or rather needs you to be.
    These things combined can cause you anxiety. A sense loneliness. And depression…tears will come from nowhere at any time, and for every plausible reason that no one else can relate to, only yourself.

    To create a blog for the reasons you have, shows you are not going to let this condition beat you.
    You are going to be able to help others.
    And you will see an end to the pain and suffering…

      Thanks Stace, I really appreciate your message my hope is that not only my friends and family read but I find others with CRPS/RSD that can perhaps find some comfort from knowing other people are going through the same thing.
