To all my dear friends and supporters. 2018 brings another set of challenges with CRPS. Currently my insurance will not approve the medication I have been taking for the past two plus years and I’m receiving lots of push back from every attempt my doctors have made with them. Their are a few programs which are possible yet out of pocket for me. Due to not being able to work a steady job somewhere, those programs are out of reach for me. There are two treatments in particular: one may help elongate the benefits from the spinal procedures ($175/ injection need min. of three) followed by the other palliative treatments ($1,000/ to apply and receive these benefits) could help sustain my recovery process. Both of which are not covered by insurance and out of my budgetary scope. Thank you.
