So I have been wheelchair bound for just over a month now and being the athletic person I am, it is driving me crazy. I did manage to earn my black belt in taekwondo December 9th, but I am looking for other ways to challenge myself. So I came up with these fitness goals, which I have been working really hard to meet. Here they are!

I am a 20 year old junior at the college of my dreams. I am studying Emergency Medicine and Communication Rhetoric and minoring in the Administration of Justice and National Preparedness and Emergency Management certificate. At some point, I want to go and get my paramedic certification when my health allows. I have several chronic illnesses and this blog and website serves as a place for me to share my journey fighting CRPS and my other conditions. I hope that this blog can also serve as an outlet for raising awareness for rare diseases. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! Feel free to comment; I'd love to know what you think!
