Lyme Treatment FollowUp: In the Dumps
The last post I wrote about my Lyme issues was a pretty big downer. I was feeling pretty crummy for about 3 weeks prior to this week. I was losing faith in the whole process (Lyme Stop), and was having anxiety over seeing Dr. Smith for my Lyme-Stop Treatment follow-up appointment. I guess I figured, “This is it. What if I still don’t feel better? I can’t feel this way again.” It was difficult to feel so bad again after I really was improving with each passing week. To dip into depressing darkness again was more than I could handle.
Here are a few of my journal entries that are side-by-side in my journal. You can see the drastic juxtaposition.

Feeling Great. So much more clarity. Weight keeps slipping off. Less aches & pains, more energy. Less cravings. Feeling more motivated. Thinking of trying an exercise video today. Maybe Zumba. I love to dance.
Lyme Treatment Follow-Up: Valleys
July 5, 2016 (I posted this day as well – click here)
Seeing Dr. Smith tomorrow. Been feeling bleh & frustrated. I’m hoping it goes well. I’m TIRED of the whole thing. Shae had a tick on her head yesterday – trying to burrow into her skin. Disgusting! I hate ticks. I HATE LYME DISEASE!!!
11:50 am – Leaving Home. Raining. Tired
12:51 Black stumps along the river. Dead
Reference to Psalm 1 – verse about being trees planted by streams of water, yielding fruit in its season, leaves shall not wither.
I feel withery.
1:17 – 12:17 with time change.
Gas station. Nothing looks good to eat. A bunch of “interesting” people hanging around.
Around 1 – Lunch at Olive Garden. Yumm! Girl said she liked my hair in the bathroom. Made me feel good.
3:15 at Dr. Smiths. I told him I was feeling SOOO bad. He checked for any residual Lyme or co-infections. Cleared “it” out a couple of places. He said I had a blood virus and that can make me feel REALLY bad. He also said I had a sinus infection. Treated all.
Probably around 4
Walked around Walmart a bunch.
Just got done at Costco
Feeling better already from treatment!
Lyme Treatment Follow-Up: Back on the Mountain
July 7, 2016
Woke up with some energy. Big improvement. Slight headache. Need water. The heaviness has lifted a lot. I am so grateful. God, you are good. You hear my cries for help and healing. You are doing a mighty work in me. Thank you
Lyme Treatment Follow-Up: Success
My faith in Dr. Smith’s process has never been greater. I know it is difficult for people to not be skeptical of his technique, but the proof is in the results. I haven’t felt energy upon waking up in the morning since I don’t know when, and I have felt it every morning since my visit to Dr. Smith’s 8 days ago. It is a miracle for me. I feel like I am back on the right track to great health. I am so thankful that God gave him this gift to heal people with, and that I was able to receive the treatment. I am optimistic for my future. I feel the heaviness lifting.
