because I think so much about the other people in this world struggling with much worse cases of RSD/RND, and while I’ve experienced intense full body pain, I can’t even imagine what it must be like to almost lose a limb or to constantly depend on a wheelchair. The uncertainty of what the next day will bring is enough. I’m so thankful that, although I may struggle, I am healthy enough to walk normally most days. The thought of the billions of people who walk this planet daily without giving the action a second thought, without ever showing thanks that they can perform such a simple function, makes me so emotional for all of those suffering from chronic pain such as RSD/RND or other debilitating diseases who cannot take for granted such a simple pattern of movement.
