Product Description

Because of a knee injury, Ruth has developed a disorder known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type I (CRPS – I) is the newer term for the disorder. The hypothetical rationale for RSD is a nerve becomes damaged (could be from something as simple as a splinter), does not repair appropriately, and, therefore, causes excruciating chronic pain. The pain in turn causes the body to compensate resulting in skin, bone, muscle, and more nerve damage. Ruth discusses the diagnosis, treatments, coping with excruciating pain, and dealing with the losses associated with RSD. She also talks about the effects chronic pain has had on her marriage and her faith in God.

    Recently I had an accident that left me with personal experience with a list of doctors, diagnosis and medications. One disorder was something I'd never heard about, but was experiencing even if THEY couldn't find it --chronic pain. Reading Ruth's book was wonderful, I realized that I was not alone in my journey both physically and spiritually. She outlines her journey with RSD and offers practical suggestions for dealing with it. I especially love the chapter on adding softener to the washing machine. I've found it very useful. I feel that the book is very well written and uplifting. I've recommended this book to several people -- 5 in one weekend alone who have been diagnosed with either RSD or chronic pain. I've given out 3 copies of the book already. Even though Ruth writes about RSD, her ideas and suggested solutions can apply to many chronic conditions. Well worth the read!!
