2 for 1

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.”
