Living with CRPS- New Drawings
Life with CRPS continues and there is still a life to be lived despite the pain. I had two low pain months mid-winter but lately not so good, the reasons for these variations are illusive, there are no definite reasons as to why. My next 5 day Ketamine infusion at Geelong Private Hospital is not far away and knowing some relief from pain/ help is not far away is comforting and empowering. This group of drawings was completed one day when the pain was getting me down, I hope my CRPS online friends can relate to them.

I love this one. For me I imagine that the pieces used to make a whole, and the whole has been broken, contorted, pulled apart - and now the colour is spread all around the picture. Still in the picture, but not together. That's how I feel when I am experiencing pain - like I stare at that part of my body and it's attached, but it's like the body part couldn't possibly be mine, it's so disconnected from who I used to be/who I want to be. I hope that makes sense!
