The past 13 years, after a sprain to my right ankle, I have been challenged by an incurable chronic illness called RSD or CRPS. It has taken so much from me except for my creativity! Sometimes, when you are going through a dark time, something positive does out of it. During my treatments and my pain, I started to paint. As I am painting, I feel a sense of release, A release and an expression of my emotions. Its amazing to me, after all the treatments, procedures, medications, depression, loss of time with my kids, and the frustration of zero results, painting has been my savior!
