Why Me?

In 2007 I sprained my ankle. It was really rather silly, I turned it in some water my co-worker had left on the floor when they were mopping. I didn't think anything of it. That is till it didn't start to heal and the pain didn't start to subside like it was supposed to.

I spent the next year fighting with doctors, WCB and my physio to make them listen to me when I said there was a problem and my ankle still hurt beyond what it should at this point.

Finally I was diagnosed with CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. A disease of the nervous system that is in the Chronic Pain family. I couldn't believe it. I started researching it right away and I realized that this could be a career killer and it could take the life I knew away.

I didn't know or understand why I was allowed to end up with this disease. I tried to be a good person, I tried to live my life the way God was leading me, and now I had to deal with this. I was angry, hurt and upset. I didn't know what to do and I turned my back on God and told him that he let this happen to me and if that was the case then I didn't want anything to do with him.

It took me a few years, but I finally realized that this wasn't God's fault. It was just a freak accident that led me to have this disease. And I realized that since I had it I was going to have to do something with it. So, I started to let it strengthen me and make me a stronger person.

Suddenly everything changed. I realized that I was strong enough to handle this and God knew that and he let this happen to me so I could share my strength with other people and I could help them get through the hard times that they were facing.

The biggest lesson I've learned over the last 7 years is that you can't let things like CRPS defeat you. Things like this happen to make you stronger and it gives you the opportunity to share your own strength and God's love with other people and try and help them be stronger in their own battles.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
