Every year around this time, people write parodies surrounding the song The Twelve Days of Christmas. Because I just got out of the hospital and will be going back in right after Christmas, I thought this was fitting. For the most part, it is accurate as well.
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
My doctor gave to me
Twelve trigger point injections,
Eleven ketamine infusions,
Ten uncurled toes,
Nine days in the hospital,
Seven PT sessions,
Six morning rounds,
Five colorful balloons,
Four singing pumps,
Three hospital bracelets,
Two epidural catheters,
And a large chance for remission!
I had fun writing this and hopefully, it'll be good for a few laughs!

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!
