While participating in the #30DaysofBourbon Challenge is Bourbon-centric, it is less about drinking and more about Bourbon Karma – do good things in the name of Bourbon, and it will return the favor. That’s why there’s a charity angle to the Challenge.
For the last several years, I’ve used the Challenge to personally understand what Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is and how it affects Mrs. Whiskeyfellow. That’s not to suggest I don’t try all year long because I do, but bringing awareness sometimes takes first-hand experience.
Today, I’m participating in a CRPS TENS unit challenge. Mrs. Whiskeyfellow will explain what is happening while dialing the electrodes. My reaction was funny, and I was in enough discomfort to get Cinder, my wife’s service dog, to start alerting me that I was having an “episode.”
This is a funny video despite the seriousness of it. And, if you’d like to help find a cure for this godawful neurological disorder, you can donate directly to the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA) at https://rsds.org/donate.
Enjoy my misery. It was worth doing. Cheers!
Whiskeyfellow encourages you to enjoy your whiskey as you see fit but begs you to do so responsibly.
