I own a couple of conditions known as arachnoiditis, RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) also known as CRPS (Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome), and I own all that comes with those as well. My journey began in October of 2009, when a spinal cord injury was inflicted upon me from medical harm and negligence in October of 2009. I was not sedated in the least, not even with a valium, as the needle from a lumbar puncture was driven into my cauda equina puncturing my spinal nerves and ripping the dura sac by the hand of the doctor performing the procedure without an assistant, who got off balance. I had a very dear friend in the room with me holding my hands as this happened. My life was forever changed.
Throughout my journey, I have suffered torture, hell. I have suffered tortuous levels of pain that have left me in emergency room countless times, and numerous one and two week hospital admissions. I’m not sure at the time of writing this how many times I had learn how to walk again, constantly retraining my brain and pushing myself along the way. However, I did keep copies of my medical records, and I documented my medical journey since the day it began. I just recently began to review my personal documentation and will be publishing the whole story in an upcoming book. I will be sharing bits and pieces of my journey on my blog, including my challenges, treatment program, and random articles sharing knowledge, information, and inspiration.
