Find the Lemonade
This condition is hell. It is torture. It will take everything from you.
But the only way you will survive is by finding something worth living for–something worth fighting for.
Don’t let your CRPS stop you from fighting.
CRPS doesn’t make you weak, it makes you stronger. Find that strength and hold on.
Remember it always gets better again but when it seems like it’s taking too long to mellow out, then stop focusing on yourself and focus on someone else. Best natural pain reliever is the joy you get helping others. It makes the pain of life worth living. Hold on to it.
Find the thing you’re going to fight for–whether it be family, friends, church, pets, your community-- and never let go.
Don’t be afraid to dream. You’re more capable than you know.
Your condition isn’t a liability, it’s an asset. Don’t let it stop you. Don’t let it define you.
I’m proud to be fighting back not only against CRPS, but against society.
I’m going to be the only disabled woman in the US House of Representatives because I refuse to give up.
We are better and stronger than anyone imagines.
We are warriors!!
