Shopping Can Suck
I shopped for a couple of hours with some friends yesterday and the pain afterward was nuts. I was quickly reminded that walking around a couple of large stores is not a good idea.
We took the normal Covid-19 precautions and started off looking for some clothes for a friend. About five-minutes in I was regretting my decision to go. But I did find a few last-minute gifts for my family.
CRPS makes shopping more of an online experience. I shopped online and actually handmade most of my gifts. I customized some books and journals for family and friends and made some Christmas tree ornaments. The ornaments are not only reflective of 2020, but are also shouting about CRaPS (Remember, the “a” stands for angry.).
Humor is a must for we CRPSers. We have to laugh everyday to keep our spirits high — laughter is the best medicine, after all. So, laugh at shopping, I will, because CRPS isn’t going to stop me. The breakthrough pain is always temporary, and I can handle that to bless my family with a few gifts to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
P.S.: Stay safe out there and find something to laugh about today.
