I love the fall season in Minnesota with the colorful leaves and the fall decorations like big spiders on people’s doors or scary things hanging from the entryways! Just love it. Although it also means we are coming upon “Why do I live here season?” Don’t get me wrong- I enjoy winter; however, I sometimes think I should live somewhere warmer and just enjoy winter from afar! A girl can dream!
I started treatment for Lyme’s Disease two weeks ago and treatment for SIBO this past Monday. Honestly, I have to admit – IT IS KICKING MY BUTT! My doctor said both treatments could make me feel lousy! Lousy is an understatement. I generally have pretty high tolerance for anything but when my daughters have to put me to bed at nights, that’s when I know its been a rough road! Battling with severe fatigue and abdominal pain, flu-like symptoms, RLS, blurred vision, night sweats, etc, etc, etc. Remember this is only the physical side effects, my emotional and mental state is for another blog post!
I am still trying to find humor in all of this which was the case when I made my dad chuckle the other night when I talked to him. He said he was worried about me. So I told him I was worried about me too! Thanks Dad! A little laughter goes a long way especially since this has been the toughest week yet.
On the bright side….. I hope I turned the corner today. I was able to shower and get ready this morning without thinking how much time do I have to nap before starting my day! I’m still severely fatigued, but a little more energy and a little less of everything else! As I say in my book…I may not be where I want to be, but I’m doing the best I can right now!

I wish you a joy filled day today and may your Halloween be filled with lots of scary stories, chocolate candy and little smiles as the children run up to your door.
