Today’s Prompt: What’s a day that you wish you could have used a pain-free pass (either in the future or the past)? How would being pain or worry-free impact that day?
I would wish that starting this month I won a inner pain-free pass that I feel because of writer’s cramp. It is a pain of the soul because of the discomfort, cramps and twists of the hands. A pain of despair and anguish by trying to live in the civilization of writing without writing. A pain deriving from so much effort to live well with dystonia …
I wish I could have used a pain free pass to live without the writer’s cramp for the rest of my life. I do not know what it is to live without dystonia. I was born with neurologic movement disorder. The only thing I wanted was to live in peace and without so much suffering!
I could never write normally… I always rehearsed for writing. I have picked up the pen strongly and I always was slow when writing a short text. Writing has always been difficult and a lot of discomfort. I was born this way. I do not know how it is to live without writer’s cramp. In my life there is no borderline between life before and after dystonia.
I have lived with little involuntary spasms, with crooked and almost totally invalid hands for specific tasks. I still think all this is strange and a real nightmare!
This month, I would like to can demarcating a line between my life pre and post dystonia … I would like to know how it’s to write without much effort. I would like to know how is it typing, griping a fork, grabing a cup of coffee, leaf through a book and things like without making a big discomfort and effort.
