I was a fitness champion, personal trainer, aerobics instructor, top producing Real Estate Agent and all around most positive and energetic person anyone had ever known. It all changed when I fractured my ankle and RSD set in a few days later. Then through time it spread throughout my entire body even my jaw and teeth are affected now. I have never let it take over and will continue on my fight against this horrible disease. My determination and strength comes from my willingness to never let obstacles or pain get me down. I will stand up and fight for as long as I can and will strive to be a motivater to other sufferers. Just because you get a disease do not let it get you! Fight against it and be stronger than you have ever been, don't bow down and surrender because with RSD if you do stop or let it take over you may not get to ever get back up again!
