I love God, my family & my kitty, Luna! Being a Health Advocate,Mentoring & writing,is what I enjoy doing. Helping other people, that's where my heart is. I I am truly happy being an Ambassador for the U.S. Pain Foundation. I'm a Chronic pain patient & have the opportunity to spread awareness and advocate for people like myself. I am a Mentor & guest blogger for RSDSA & RSDHOPE.org. Writing is a passion of mine as well as blogging. In 2016, I became a columnist for Ntl. Pain Report, an online Newspaper. My own Blog is "Tears Of Truth" on WordPress. If/when I am at all physically able, I do Artistic ASL Interpretations & Covers of meaningful & sometimes popular songs. (I'm Fluent in ASL). I used to be an Interpreter for the Deaf, but my career was cut short due to circumstances beyond my control. I can't process info. quickly due to a TBI, nor can I move w/o pain. Photography, Gadgets & Technology are also my passions. Since 1999, I've been permanently disabled due to PTSD, Chronic Pain & RSD/CRPS. I also live w/ Combined Immune deficiency Disease, CKDII, OA, RA, Atrial-Fib., Chiari I, TBI s/p MVA '02, moderate hearing loss, Gastroparesis, Chronic Erosive Gastritis, Autonomic Neuropathy, Deg. Disc Disease, Dysautonomia/POTS/NCS, Polyneuropathy in Collagen Vascular Disease, Prinzmetal Angina, Long QT syndrome & Sick Sinus Syndrome.I live with chronic pain due to multiple injuries/surgeries s/p a MVA in 2002. Following a foot surgery in 2007, I acquired this painful, progressive "Neuro-autoimmune disease", called "CRPS" or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Following my 2nd pacemaker & pectoral muscle rebuild surgery in Feb. 2013, the CRPS spread and now it is Systemic, severe & disseminated. I'm a survivor! I've used the pain to try and do good & I have gained knowledge from it. I'm Founder/admin. for 3 support groups: 1: "Invisible Diseases (*chronic pain), 2: "R.A.S.E. For CRPS", (the letters represent: (R)esearch, (A)wareness, (S)upport & (Education) for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome & 3) "International RSD/CRPS Support Group". On Google , I've formed a discussion group for Chronic Pain & RSD/CRPS patients. It is called "Be Aware & Care".I'm a volunteer for "Chemo-angels", (a non-profit org. that supplies volunteer "angels" *(like me) to help cheer chemo-therapy patients & get them through treatment feeling less alone). Lastly, I'm a survivor of lifetime of trauma/abuse & Domestic
