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.

Before You Go Away

I think those of us with invisible illnesses understand this quote more than the average person. We quite literally live it. Thank you, Plato :)

In other news – I’m off to my LLMD this afternoon. I’m crossing my fingers! It’ll be my first appointment since stopping all my pharmaceutical antibiotics last month. Many symptoms have lessoned, and a few old ones have resurfaced. I’m not sure what to think. I’m trying to go in with an open mind.

I’ll be back with an update soon!

Much love,

molly
