Fighting Dystonia, Chronic Lyme Disease & EDS Type 3… any questions?

My quote of the day has to be ‘Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional’.  I find this quote rather fitting. Having dystonia means that every day and every night in full of pain, some days worse than others. However just because I am in pain does not mean I should stop and give up. If anything I embrace the pain, I accept that it is part of me but it does not define me.

Dystonia makes many daily activities like cooking, washing my hair, going for a walk etc. rather hard, but that is no excuse for me to lie in bed all day feeling sorry for myself. Instead it inspires me to get up and go, to think what can I do and then go and do it. I love horse riding, its going to be difficult to do, but I am not going to let pain stop me from giving it a go!

Dystonia causes a hell of a lot of pain. I am going to achieve everyone of my goals despite it!
