By my standards today was a wonderful day! After the hell that was yesterday I enjoyed every small and happy accomplishment today: Blueberry muffins, pink toe nails, washed hair, homemade popsicles, and being coaxed by my lovely best friend Gracia to go to an outdoor concert in the park tonight which meant time spent with my mom and my cousin, and last but not least… swings!
Side note: I giggle when I swing. Don’t you?
Smiles, laughter and joy will be remembered from today. The symptoms? They’ll be forgotten.
I also wanted to say Thank You to all of you who have left comments here that I haven’t yet responded to, and who reached out to me in the months I’ve been MIA. It has meant the world. So, Thank You. Your support is integral to my road of recovery. Hopefully I’ll be well enough soon to blog an update. In the meantime, all my love!
I’m working on finishing the update from the appointment with my new LLMD and it’s taking me a lot longer to finish than I had expected. It’s slow going as I’m patient with myself, my memory, and my symptoms.
In the meantime I have two things to share with you. First, this lovely photo I found this morning. I have always loved this poem! It was the inspiration I needed and just the reminder I wanted today; I hope you enjoy it too!
Secondly, I wrote a new piece this week that I’d like to share with you. I like to think of myself as an aspiring writer, but with Lyme I feel that most of my creative writing has gone on the back-burner. I haven’t written a thing resembling poetry, stories, or anything remotely creative in ages. But these words just poured out of me in a way that I was craving. I’d like to invite you to read this.
I’m calling it my break-up letter with Lyme.
This morning a cloud lifted and let a few precious rays of sunshine into my life, even if it was for just a few hours. Today was one of those rare days amid Lyme Disease treatment that reminded me what I’m fighting to have. I felt human today.
It was wonderful not to feel like I have lately. And not to look like I do in this picture! These last weeks have been some of the worst I’ve had in the past 2 and 1/2 years. And so, I had to share this moment of celebration with you all!
I’ll be back soon to update you all on what’s happened lately. Friday is a big day for me. I’d appreciate if you could say a prayer, send some love, light, & support my way. Or just keep me in your thoughts!
