I love God, my family & my kitty, Luna! Being a Health Advocate, Mentoring, Blogging, graphics, ASL & freelance writing are what I enjoy doing. I used to be an Interpreter for the Deaf at a University hospital and magnet schools for Deaf children. I was injured in a MVA in 2002 and suffered a TBI, along with multiple injuries and surgeries. I now have moderate hearing loss and truly enjoy doing ASL covers of popular songs on my YOUTUBE page. You can find it if you Google "ASLSuzyQ".

Helping others; that's where my heart is. I am very happy being an Ambassador for the U.S. Pain Foundation. I'm also 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 Author for Ntl. Pain Report, an online Health Magazine. My own Blog is called: "Tears Of Truth" on WordPress (at: Suzydukettes.wordpress.com). Photography, Gadgets & Technology are also my passions.

Since 1999, I've been permanently disabled due to PTSD and Renal Failure. Later on, s/p the MVA it continued for several High Chronic Pain illnesses, such as RSD/CRPS, Combined Immune deficiency Disease, Gastroparesis, S.I.B.O., Gastritis, Autonomic Neuropathy, Deg. Disc Disease, Chiari I, Dysautonomia/POTS, Polyneuropathy in Collagen Vascular Disease, Prinzmetal Angina, Long QT syndrome & Sick Sinus Syndrome. I also have a pacemaker. My RSD/CRPS went "Full body/systemic, severe & disseminated" s/p a heart surgery in 2013.

I'm a survivor! I use the pain to try and do good & I have gained knowledge from it. I'm Founder/admin. of 6 support groups for Chronic Pain, CRPS, Dysautonomia/POTS & Pacemakers online. One of the online groups is an International CRPS support group! I'm being certified via the U.S. Pain Foundation, in July '17 with training for "in person" support groups.

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). I also am a Patient Leader for WEGO Health, a Mentor for RSDSA and I'm a freelance writer for all of the above.
