The McGill Pain index (a method used to measure pain since 1971) rates CRPS as “the worst chronic pain a person can experience”, scoring 45 out of a possible 50. To put this into perspective, first time child birth rates at roughly 35-40, and a fracture rates at around 17..
My mother has been a prolific artist, ever since my brother and I were babies (31+ years). She's always created new and inventive ways to make financial ends meet, being the Wonder Woman she is.. given her new found normal with this severely life-altering disease, everyday tasks, memory, eyesight and art/work is becoming less of an ability as each day passes..
It’s my blessing to be physically able/willing to act as her literal right hand and fully functioning brain..
Unfortunately, the state of Arizona doesn’t deem her eligible for disability benefits (we’re actively working to appeal her denial notice). This would allow me to be compensated for my full time job as her caregiver..
However, with your support it would make our nightmare a bit more bearable. Considering the current state of being here on Earth, we over-stand this isn’t a financially abundant time for most.. Any dollar amount would be received with utmost gratitude, and a humble heart.
Thank you for caring, dear ones.
