I have had complex regional pain syndrome for the past 2 years. The constant pain is exhausting. Trying hard to not slip into depression and keep hold of positive thoughts and being mindful of anything I feel needs attention is very necessary for me. I love the summer, I stood outside in a downpour the other day. Warm rain. It didn't matter that I was wet. It was amazing. I painted it in abstract, full of the warm summer sun and colours of vibrant flowers in the garden. The splashing of heavy drops of rain. I escaped from the pain for a little time.
