How to be a Greek God or Goddess for CRPS

Those of you who know your Greek mythology know that Achilles was a mighty fighter in the Trojan War who only had one weak spot: his heel. Apparently his mother dipped baby Achilles into the River Styx to make him invincible, but—duh—she dipped him headfirst, holding him upside down by his heel.


It’s the origin of the phrase “That’s my Achilles heel,” meaning “that’s my one weakness.”

It’s also the name of a fundraising event for CRPS coming up on Sunday, June 26, 2016 in New York City: The Achilles Walk of Hope & Possibility.
