I Will Raise My Voice 

“Sometimes the hardest part isn’t letting go but rather learning to start over”

I’ve never fully understood this saying until I was diagnosed with CRPS and my whole life changed with just one word. It’s been a struggle learning to let go of the past, learning to let go of who I was, who I used to be and what I was capable of doing. 

Even though it’s been a 16 months since that day I was diagnosed, I’ve been learning to not let it define me and take control of who I truly am. Yes, it’s always going to be a part of me but I don’t have to let it dictate my life ’cause believe me it already did last year and I made a promise to myself that this year I will get my life back, but also share my story with others by raising my voice as loud and as long as possible.
