I am a multi-disciplinary artist living in Louisville KY.
I'm currently studying Design at University of Louisville .
I was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome due to medical misconduct growing up, this essentially took away my ability to use my legs and even spread to my hands through misfired nerve passages. The disorder misfires signals of vibrations and sensations as pain signals to your brain when in fact nothing is actually wrong. To this day it was the most brutally painful thing I have ever experienced. I was forced to go to Boston and retrain my brain to perceive pain signals at an experimental rehabilitation clinic that focused on the disorder. I was diagnosed in such a time frame that allowed for me to recover, almost every other person who has ever been diagnosed has not been able to do so. This is mostly due to the lack of information that is known about the disorder. Because of this I am the only known case of a full remission from the disorder, although I still have nerve damage I am healthy and able to walk.
Something that I am truly grateful for every day of my life.
