Chronic Phoenix

My name is Amber, I'm 25 years old. I live with several chronic illnesses. One (CRPS, Type II) which causes severe neurological pain as a result of nerve damage during surgery on my arms. The other (Stickler Syndrome, Type III) is progressive and causes joint pain, loss of sight/hearing, and some other problems.

My name is Amber, I'm 25 years old. I live with several chronic illnesses. One (CRPS, Type II) which causes severe neurological pain as a result of nerve damage during surgery on my arms. The other (Stickler Syndrome, Type III) is progressive and causes joint pain, loss of sight/hearing, and some other problems. As a result of the pain and stress of living with these conditions, I also struggle with depression and have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Type II. I'm joining this site in order to find motivation to live a healthier lifestyle in order to improve my overall health and to help decrease the symptoms of my conditions.

My life isn't all about my conditions though, I try to live life to the fullest and raise and show rabbits and guinea pigs throughout the Midwestern United States. I also enjoy art of all forms - acrylic, oil pastels, charcoal, graphite, mixed media, colored pencil, and watercolor. In 2007, I graduated with an Associate's degree in Graphic Design and also love photography, graphic, and web design.
