How can it be Fall already? Kids back in school, leaves falling from the trees, and football is here!
As promised (way back in June) I want to provide an update on my latest diagnosis. Well, here goes! I have TWO tick borne illnesses. Yes, you heard that right – TWO! I have Lyme’s and Anaplasmosis. Both are illnesses from wood ticks. (You can google either one). While I don’t know when I was infected with either one, I’m guessing it wasn’t from the same tick so the saying 2 for 1 doesn’t quite apply… although its kind of fun to say!
Since June, I have been getting treated for both and now know how good I can actually feel. The treatment has been slow but beneficial. I feel like I’m getting my life back a little bit at a time. I am still limited with physical activity and do needs naps on occasion BUT it’s SO MUCH better than it has been in years!!
Everyday I say “I love my life!” And its so true! I am so grateful for every day. So, when the rough days come, I’m more fully aware of my body and my limitations, but now I know, with 100% certainty, that the rough days will not last long. What a wonderful concept!
What a wonderful life! As Self Care Cove says…”You don’t have to be perfect to be pretty damn amazing.”
