Well, that was interesting

Okay, let's never do that again, okay?


The past three days (or was it four, I cannot even remember) I want to block from my memory and never relive again. I've never in this Lyme Disease journey....ugh. That was horriffic.

Due to the extreme Herxheimer reaction, I stopped that antibiotic (doxy) day before yesterday and felt almost immediate relief. Yesterday I was nearly back to my normal energy and pain levels. Today I'm a little tired but really, I'm cutting myself some slack considering the lack of sleep and extreme pain I was dealing with just two days ago.

This disease is a mystery and living with it every day is like trying to solve a riddle. What's overwhelming is when I feel like there's no solution (like I did three days ago) and like there's nothing I can do for myself. That's when the desperation sets in.

Today is a new day and it's a day of celebration.

  1. I had no idea that you were living with Lyme. Praying that this week brings you new strength and that it's not as tough as it has been!
