Mindset coach Amberly Lago suffers from extreme and constant pain after she was hit by SUV while riding a motorcycle, but she is using positivity to combat the effects of health struggles.
She tells The Doctors she underwent 34 surgeries to save her leg from amputation and has been diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), which is a chronic (lasting more than 6 months) pain condition that most often affects one limb (arm, leg, hand, or foot) usually after an injury. In order to deal with the ongoing pain, Amberly uses the acronym PACER to help, which is:
Perspective - Which includes focusing on the good aspects of her life
Acceptance - This involves onwing her injury and the pain and being vulnerable
Community - "Together we're unstoppable," Amberly says, noting a support system is vital
Endurance - She says this helps fuel her passion and perseverance
Rest - Ambery feels downtime is a necessity, not a luxury
Learn more about Amberly's journey and how she refused to let her injury land her in a wheelchair for the rest of her life, in her book, “True Grit and Grace,” available wherever books are sold.
