My name is Kathy, and I live in the north-east UK with my husband and our three children. I have been living with chronic back pain for over four years now. On 30th March 2013 I was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
After having many ups and downs with NHS services, I thought it might be positive to share these in a blog. I’d also like to share personal experiences of pain and mobility issues. I’m sure there are many people out there who are living with chronic pain of various causes, known and unknown, who could use a positively geared resource of information, links and personal experiences to help them on their way to conquering their pain.
I write product reviews, share what’s happening with me, and some information on chronic pain. I would love feedback or ideas on topics to write about or post up for others, including your own personal experiences if you fancy. This doesn’t have to be limited to CRPS. Ultimately this blog is here not to vent or wallow (although I’m only human, haha!) but for you lot to get some support, information and perhaps forge some friendships with similar-minded folks.
As a kindof conjoined aside to this blog, I am very interested in raising awareness of CRPS in the UK in particular, and would love to hear from others in the UK who would like to be involved in perhaps getting that ball rolling.
What I can’t do with this blog is give personal medical advice, but I will share my personal experiences and those of others who wish to share. So if you like what you read, stay in touch, “follow” this blog and use the comments spaces to give feedback or ideas, they’re all welcome. If anyone would prefer to contact me privately, I have a contact page in the links above.
