For many with CRPS, the light touch of a sheet can be excruciating. So what happens when your Aunt Jo, whom you haven’t seen for years, wraps you in a giant bear hug for five minutes? Probably a giant flare, right?
What if each spoonie developed a sign like from American Sign Language to show love without physical contact? That way you can avoid a flare and show family and friends that you love and care about them.
Just a random thought. What do you think? Below is a picture of my sign for my family! It actually means “I love you” in ASL.
