We all have the skill to beat this disease. We all do. But not everyone has this burning desire where you will do WHATEVER it takes to beat it. RSD is abusive. We are allowing ourselves to be abused every time we give into it. Fight back. You have a the skill but having that burning fire. That not everyone has. Fighting is hard. But giving up is so much harder. Choose to fight today. I know I plan on starting some new progression(will post about that later today!) And obviously working touch and teaching my amazing students today!! I have to dash right now though- off to the gym again! #RSD #CRPS #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #quote #quotes #rsdsucks #inspiration #motivation #champion #fight #stoptheabuse #create #the #fire #beatit

So this is a new touch exercise that is started yesterday! Yesterday I did this with my coach for the first time and she made me smile for the pic but it was probably one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. And today my boyfriend Jared (who is also working with me through touch therapy) did this with me. Here’s how we did it: Karen
 ( @karenbrown17 ) and Jared spread their feet apart and gave me their hands and stood completely still. Then I took their hands and put them over my rib cage (I have sensitivity to pressure in my ribs) and then I backed into their chest so my back (where I am sensitive) was against them. Then the hardest part. I had to move my feet against their feet. The whole time they would whisper in my ear and just remind me that I was safe, I was in control, they were not hurting me, and that everything was okay. Then when I was at my max I would tell them and they would slowly count down from 10 and then I would move away and then they would move. It is hard but successful! I challenge you to try this with someone you dearly trust today! Tag me and tag #rsdprogressiondare  

I want to see how you guys do!! And make sure this is with someone you trust because touch progression is based off of faith and trust. Thanks to Karen and Jared I am doing much better! Let me know what you think about this! #RSD #CRPS #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #rsdprogressiondare #stoptheabuse #fight #don’t #acclimate #boyfriend #and #coach #support

This is the case for many with RSD. Some people think that “pain is just the ‘normal’ for RSD” but it shouldn’t be. Today I did a 2 1/2 hour private pointe session. In 7 months I have accomplished alot when I was told I wouldn’t be able to do it after 10 months of desensitizing and working hard look where I am. I am not pain free but I want to be and I will work to be. How about you how hard are you willing to work? #RSD #CRPS #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #quote #quotes #rsdsucks #inspiration #fight PS: I am guilty of this too. And also sorry about my iPod last night. I have no idea what happened w it lol. (Taken with Instagram)

We all know this is true. Let’s just admit it. RSD is a mind game. Technically there is nothing wrong with us— except our nerves messed up signals. The hard part is knowing when to push and when to pause. Yesterday I had some trouble walking and I knew I had a long day so I paused here and there. Today I pushed my body and it paid off, I am walking normally even on stairs. Sometimes we just have to be fearless and do what we don’t want to. I for sure did NOT want to walk the past few days. I actually wanted my crutches back but I never let myself get to that point mentally. As my trainer tells me CONSTANTLY (lol) “if you give the RSD an inch, it will take a mile.” #rsd #crps #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #quote #quotes #rsdsucks #FIGHT #BACK (Taken with Instagram)

Sometimes you need to stop what you are doing and remind yourself that you want to get better and you have to remind yourself why you are fighting. When I was struggling to get on pointe sometimes my dance teacher would make me stop and ask me why I was doing this. After I would tell her that it is my dream she would tell me to continue and go after my dream. Sometimes you need to stop fighting to remember why you are doing what you are doing and think then go right back to it. #rsd #CRPS #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #quote #quotes #rsdsucks #inspiration #air #reminder #break #fight (Taken with Instagram)

I have learned from my past experiences that there is a appropriate time to grieve and a time to move on. If you don’t grieve you will never move on and will NEVER be content. I have grieved many times over a loss of a part of my life. When you have RSD you have to watch your life fade away and sometimes you can’t take it back but other times you can but you have to fight for it. I had to Grieve and then later on fight to have it back. Somethings I never got back but others after fighting, crying, and failing at times I was able to retrieve back again. So moral of the story— grieve when necessary and always fight to get it back. #rsd #CRPS #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #quote #quotes #rsdsucks #inspiration #grief #life #learn #grow #FIGHT  (Taken with Instagram)

Becoming pain free will NEVER become easy. It will be the hardest thing you will EVER work for— and will be the most rewarding thing you will EVER do. So what are you waiting for? Just do it… The water may be deep but your not drowning yet… And you won’t. #rsd #CRPS #rsdcrps #rsdcrps4acure #quote #quotes #rsdsucks #inspiration #fight #deep #hard #worthit (Taken with Instagram)
