Cerebral Challenge

I hope everyone is having a good day, with lots of spoons and not a lot of pain! Indulge in some unsolicited advice, and take three deep breaths right now. Because, why not? I love deep breathing, and I did it long before I ended up with CRPS.

This is a short post to express what has been going on lately. I have three more weeks to wait before my team doctor appointment at the multidisciplinary clinic. I have had some very polarizing days lately. Definitely some iffy-in-a-bad-way days. It is what it is.

One of my greatest challenges lately has been a big old brain game. The Cerebral Challenge. A mental barrier, or Brain Fog as many know it, is a very real aspect of CRPS that some patients experience. My Brain Fog has been cranked up to 11 lately. The unfortunate thing is this fog has really postponed some important work I volunteered for to help some peers. I usually don’t struggle with words, or putting thoughts together coherently. CRPS isn’t usual though and its effects on me certainly aren’t either.

So I am sorry if I’ve been distant lately, but as I say all too often, it is what it is.
