…I have good days or bad days even hours…
I have always been an active person, yet when my CRPS became severe, I barely struggle to do any sort of activity, including dancing with my husband. The loss of independence and being unable to do the things that I loved, I was unable to drive, do basic things like open a jar,
anything that required the use of my right hand/arm.
Swimming was another, as I am unable to get up and down the pool ladder, unable to shop on my own due to driving, or pushing a trolley/basket & carrying items, it is difficult for me to open my purse & get loose change out, making shop assistants impatient with me,
leaving me embarrassed.
I hate crowds as people may bump into me and causing pain, my arm feels heavy so I place it in my pocket or rest it on my handbag, my CRPS makes my balance off centre and so unable to walk in a straight line therefore, continuously bump the person on my left hand side.
