Lyme Update – Feeling Better
It has been about 6 weeks since I received my treatment from Dr. Smith. There are so many things that have happened during this time that I am so grateful for. Not only do I have energy again, but I can focus. My mind is not as hazy and I can think clearly again. The Lyme prison that I was living in for so long is losing it’s grip on me. My husband even said that I am like a different person and that I am glowing again. Wow! My husband doesn’t really talk like that usually. I am shocked. I saw my hairdresser a few days ago, who I haven’t seen for over two months, and she was even amazed. The difference is undeniable!
I’m me again, and in some ways, a new and improved me.
For example the weight I have lost is a huge change to my appearance. I actually weigh less than I did before having my first child! Even though it is not the primary focus of my wellness goals, it has been a major perk. It ups my confidence and I just feel less ehhhh…. like blah… if that makes any sense to anyone. The changes I have made to my diet keep the weight gradually falling off. It isn’t always easy to be good, but it is so worth it!
Lyme Update – Freedom from Lyme
Even though I have done well with eating healthier, I cannot wait until I feel well enough to exercise again. I used to take self-defense classes and I loved to dance and be outdoors. Lyme stole all of that away from me. All I ever felt like doing was sleeping!
In my mind, I was always thinking about POSSIBILITIES. Everything was a maybe, could be, but just isn’t. It sucked! During the worst of it (before I knew what was going on with me), friends of mine asked me if maybe I was depressed. I didn’t think so because I still had such passion and fire in my heart for the things that I loved, just not enough motivation, energy, clarity, etc. to do anything. Talk about a cage. I felt trapped in my own life.
Have you ever felt that way?
When I started this blog, I named it me flying free because, ultimately, that is what I wanted more than anything – freedom. I wanted to soar and feel successful. All I felt was failure and a cage, but I knew there was HOPE. I kept praying for things to get better, and they finally are. I hope that my journey forward with my own life – defeating lyme, finding success blogging (not there yet, but success can be subjective…), and just finding things that “work” in my life will help others out there who feel like losing hope. Hang on!!!! Take the journey to “fly free” with me. We’re on our way, even if it is one bite of the elephant, one baby step, at a time.
God Bless –
