"R.S.D."

I sit in my chair, there's a tear in my eye
just watching the rest of the world go on by
Question's unanswered, stuff about me
"why God" I ask do I have RSD?

Friends come and go, do they really know me
do I scare them away cause I have RSD?
my body's so painful,I'm screaming inside
I dont want to play,I just want to hide

I wont let it beat me this RSD
I'm not going to sit here while it bullies me
Im taking control,wipe the tear from my eye
I know some day soon that God will reply

My family all tell me I'm special you see
and they don't treat me different cause I have RSD
So God if your listening,"This thing RSD?"
I know there's a reason why you've chosen me.

"Welcome to Holland"
  By Emily Pearl Kingsley
 
I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It's like this:
When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip to Italy. You buy a bunch of guidebooks and make your wonderful plans... the Coliseum, Michelangelo' s David, the gondolas of
Venice. You may learn some handy phrases in Italian. It's all very exciting.
 
After months of eager anticipation, the day finally arrives. You pack your bags and off you go. Several hours later, the plane lands. The stewardess comes in and says, "Welcome to Holland."
"Holland?!", you say. "what do you mean Holland? I signed up for Italy! I'm supposed to be in Italy. All my life, I've dreamed of going to Italy!"
The stewardess replies, "There's been a change in the flight plan. We've landed in Holland and it is here you must stay."
 
The important thing is that they haven't taken you to a horrible, disgusting, filthy place full of pestilence, famine and disease. It is just a different place. So, you must go and buy new guidebooks. You
must learn a whole new language. You will meet a whole new group of people you would never had met. It is just a different place. It is slower-paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy, but after you have
been there while and you catch your breath, you look around and you begin to notice that Holland has windmills, Holland has tulips, Holland even has Rembrandt. But everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy and they're all bragging about what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life you will say, "Yes, that's where I was supposed to go. That is what I had planned."
 
The pain of that will never, ever, ever go away because the loss of that dream is a very significant loss. But if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't go to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things about Holland.

An innovative imaginary business! This "advertisment" is a complete mockery of what actual doctors and therapists have said to RSD patients and their familes... only with a twist. ;o)

Welcome to "Ridiculously Stupid Daytime Spas!"
   
Are you tired of not being treated fairly? Are you fed up with standard RSD treatments? Did your insurance refuse to pay for treatment? Was your SSDI cut because you made $1 too much and now you're left wondering how you can pay for therapy, your bills and food at the same time? Do you feel as though you have nowhere to go or no one to turn to? Well folks, we have the solution for you right here at "RSD Spas!" 
   
"RSD Spas" was created for people of all ages with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy all over the world! We accept ALL insurance companies and we aren't afraid to soak them for all they've got and then some! Your insurance says they won't cover certain procedures? No problem! We'll alter the medical codes and medical terminology so that our treatments will fit into your insurance company's categories of covered benefits! That's right folks! We tailor your treatment so that it best fits YOU!!! You may think this is unethical but we assure you it is NOT! Much like the way HMO's, PPO's, etc. are run and dictate what doctors can do for you and what they're willing to pay for, we are governed by the patients! The PATIENTS make the rules and as long as we submit the required  "codes," the insurance companies are forced to provide coverage. You see? We govern ourselves while respecting the insurance companies policies! 
   
   
What "RSD Spas" can do for you:
   
Our treatments are radically different than the standard treatments for RSD most often used by physicians and therapists worldwide. Some of our most effective treatments that are offered at RSD Spas were actually origninated by doctors and therapists! That's right folks! Bonafide medical professionals!

"The Pied Piper" Music Therapy - Exclusive to RSD Spas! Singing various genres of music at our facility has been proven to please your edorphines to such an extent that the your RSD is musically entranced and flows freely from your body.
   
"Hair Straightening" - Also exclusive to "RSD Spas! This isn't your ordinary hair straightening folks! This is hair with "flare!"

At RSD Spas, we invite you to sit back and relax in our comfortable chairs and let our hair specialists "straighten out" your RSD.
