Welcome to my blog!
Learning is what this blog is all about. I will be sharing information about dystonia, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, coping skills, and related challenges to hopefully help make your life a little easier. As you well know, quality of life is altered when a chronic health condition intervenes, but it does not mean that life stops. We must go on; perhaps in a different way, but we must go on.
Adaptation and acceptance are probably two of the most challenging things we have to learn. After 15 years with dystonia, I am still a work in progress. My symptoms are better managed now compared to years past, but every day has its challenges. Some much more than others where I want to rip my hair out from the pain and muscles spasms and fatigue and…no need to go on. You know full well what it is like!
Please take a look around at the different posts. Feel free to comment and share with others. If you would like to learn more about me, there is a brief bio below. Additional information is on my website at www.tomseamancoaching.com. You will find videos, podcast interviews, links to articles, helpful tools for pain, support group resources, and information about my book, Diagnosis Dystonia: Navigating the Journey. Please check out the reviews to see if it would be of help to you. It was recognized by the Michael J Fox Foundation and listed as one of their suggested resources, which is really cool since there are no other dystonia books on their recommended reading list!
I wish you all the very best and thanks again for stopping by. If you like what you see, please subscribe to get updates sent to your email each time a new entry is posted.
