For 7 yrs, Marsha Tyszler has been living with widespread Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Fibromyalgia. Her journey with chronic pain began in August 2003, when Marsha was a camp counselor. While trying to jump over a locked fence during a relay race, she fell onto her back and immediately felt severe burning and coldness in her left leg and foot. Dazed, she continued to run not realizing that she had deeply sliced her left leg from mid-calf to mid-thigh as well as having a five-inch gash on her right inner knee. she is always cold, while her upper body overheats and sweats profusely. Marsha's muscle weakness now affects her hands in addition to her legs, and her nails and hair do not grow normally in all four extremities. She also discovered she has an arrhythmia since the nerve signals being sent to her heart are misfiring. Marsha has undergone a multitude of treatments and medications to little or no avail. “Most people would have long given up on their dreams between the physical struggles I endure, dealing with Worker's Compensation's lack of cooperation, and not being able to move on with my life's ambitions, among other things.
