One Little Bite – Sick & Tired
Another Wasted Day…
I spent most of today sleeping. It is the second time in a week that I have done that. The exhaustion has been overwhelming and I’ve been feeling yucky. No, I’m not pregnant. I read your mind!
Just feeling cruddy.
I am so sick of taking a handful of vitamins with every meal and I am just sick of LYME!!!
Tomorrow, I go back to Dr. Smith for my Lyme Treatment follow-up. He will check to see if any Lyme and/or co-infections are still hanging around. He’ll also check to see which vitamins I am still deficient in.
I hope it goes well.
I don’t know why I am so nervous about it.
One Little Bite – Disgusting Tick
I was so grossed out. I soaked the little bugger in hydrogen peroxide and pulled IT out.
I was once again disgusted at the thought that such a tiny little bug can be the source of so much misery in so many lives. And really, it is not the tick even, but the Lyme virus and the co-infections that the tick carries that are even smaller, and cause the real damage. The tick is just the messenger.
One Little Bite – One Huge Result
I’ve been thinking a lot about the Lyme process lately.
A tiny little bug, essentially, bites and sucks blood – the life-force. It then infects you with a life-changing disease that takes over.
I think about the fact that something so little can have such a huge effect.
I wonder if I, as a Christian, could have an effect that could reach that far, but in a positive way.
The tick is the carrier of Lyme, like I am the carrier of Christ. Lyme changes everything in your life for the negative, while Christ changes everything for the positive.
The Holy Spirit is infectious. He changes you from mortal to eternal.
I think about the battle that is going on within me. It is beyond physical. There is a war raging for my soul. Lyme is just the tool that satan is using to try and defeat me, to keep chains around my wings. He knows I was born to fly.
He knows that I was created to infect.
As much as I despise that little tick, I realize we have much in common. We are a tiny part of something much bigger than just us. We are messengers. We are minuscule, but very important.
As I sit here in my self-pity, I find the gem. When I feel like giving up, I grasp at a shred of encouragement.
