Living with RSD - Not making my life about RSD

In 2004, I was injured at work.  This is something I bring up from time to time here on Cowabunga Corner.  Though I don’t want to be remembered only as that person who had RSD, when I have so much other stuff that I can focus on which are happier moments.  So, I share to help with the awareness of RSD, and then I write happier stories where I don’t always share the pain that happened behind the story.  In fact, if I’m on video and start having problems, I turn off the cameras and take a break.  It’s all stuff that is edited out as much as I can

Comic Con International Hall H - Discrimination against Handicap people who walk

Being handicapped is difficult.  Some handicaps are obvious such as missing a limb, wheelchair bound, or using a service animal.  But there are less obvious handicaps: difficulty breathing, continuous pain, sudden onset pain and neurological problems to name a few.  Having a handicap makes life for that person just a little harder than for others.  And everyone with a handicap has their personal story to tell of why they are how they are, and what pain they manage in their lives.  This does not mean that handicap people do not deserve to live a normal life. It just means we need a little assistance.
