The Princess in the Tower is an award-winning blog/website which is written regularly. Its main aim is to increase awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS, formerly known as Dystrophy or, particularly long-term CRPS/RSD, which is so rarely spoken of. While this is one focus, the Tower’s been created to help as many people with chronic pain as is princessly possible. There is also healing support for fibromyalgia patients.
The writer knows first-hand how horrific it is to live with pain after suffering over 17 years with systemic CRPS and fibromyalgia, she wants to help, to relieve a little of the pressure and lunacy of what it means to live and cope with chronic illness and pain.
She writes a new extended post every month, spoon-dependant posts in-between, regular posts on Facebook, and Twitter, and as many tips and techniques as princessly possible, to help your life with pain be a whole lot easier and you a lot happier, less isolated. She encourages you to connect with other pain patients worldwide (on the Guest Book & Facebook page), building a plethora of positive methods for our growing community of princesses [and princes] to live — and cope — with chronic pain.
The Princess in the Tower is about living well anyway in spite of the pain, being happy anyway, and sharing healing and coping chronic pain and illness tips to help each other is perhaps one of the bravest communities of all.
