ABCs of RSD – P is for…

P is for…

Perception
Perception changes dependent on what you are looking for. Keep looking up!

Perspective, how we perceive the world and how our body perceives the world are two different things. We see, feel, taste, smell, touch but our body seems to think that which we have around us is 10 times, a hundred times, a thousand times more insane than it really is. Be patient with your body and knows your limits. If you don’t know them yet, take the time to find when it starts to be too much, not when it is, but when it starts. Because doing this can be a key point of learning to develop when you hit your limit for the day, the hour, the minute.

Precious, every moment with or without pain can be precious. We have so many things to give in life: our time, our experience, our love. Don’t stop to think about the little things that are important in life that most people take for granted. Sure you might have been a hiker, or a dancer, or the government officials flying all over the world. But in your head you still have knowledge, your experience; in your heart you have so much love. Everyone around you: family, friends, or fellow RSDers, to them you are precious.

P is for…

Pace, because we must pace ourselves throughout the day. We only have so much energy and if we overdo it in the early morning we can’t get anything done in the afternoon, evening, and maybe even the day after. So take your time. Baby steps are okay, because as long as you get where you need to be, you are rocking it.

P is for…

People
People, can hurt and help, and sometimes at the same time. Be patient with others.

People, they can be our greatest support and our greatest failures. The people around us can help make us get through the day or can make the pain 10 times worse. Emotional stress is it G trigger to make the pain worse, so if you find that something is too much if someone is too much then you need to step away for a while. Well it may hurts and they may not understand ultimately you have to do what is best for you, but if you can try to explain it to him as you just need a little time.

P is for…

Plague, it might sound weird but when I saw the words like in my dictionary, I thought it belonged on here. Not that RSD that can be spread from one person to another. But because it can be its intimidating factor in how people tend to shy away from us because its “sounds contagious” so people step back. And also, ironically one of the plagues, (the bubonic) had vitamin C as a key factor in fighting it off so the correlation just kind of stuck in my head.

P is for…

Progress
Any step in the right direction, even if its after two to three steps backwards is always progress.

Progress, every treatment there’s potential of progress, potential of a period of time where the pain is diminished or SAT farther back in its process. Yes that means you have to go to the hills of the last few weeks to months to years that you just did all over again, but progress means it also has to go back through all that again before it gets any worse. Don’t give up because it didn’t take it all away everything counts.

P is for…

Pride, pride is a very dangerous thing. It can lead us to do things that would hurt us just because we don’t want to depend on someone else. But if that person wants to help you, wants to be there in your life for the rough times, let them have the chance. Don’t let pride drive a wall between you and someone who loves you.

Paint, when I saw this I thought of the “Color of the World Orange” event and a video of the young lady wanted to do to for a song that she wrote about RSD. Check it out, I think she did a great job.
