My Journey

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.
