I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you on the support group to which I post this blog. Hopefully, I have been warm and open enough, (I’m sure I have, I can be pretty mushy with who I like or appreciate.) Along with expressing the importance of our group. It has been reassuring to have others to lean on who have dealt the same crappy hand of cards I have. *Well, pretty much the same deck.. since we all know, each Lyme(ie) have similarities in some ways but we are each unique in what we endure.
I am sure you could tell by my “LAST” blog — I am fairly drained with it all. I even did something I actually always disliked; I posted a picture of the dreaded tiny, deer tick that changed all of our lives. Even though the sonofabitch looks like a monster in the picture, and yet we know it’s not. It’s a part of the protocol, so I threw it on here. Don’t you love to be reminded over and over again the deer tick is very very very tiny, approximately the size of a fleck of black pepper?
*Look at it like this, it’s not so shocking we missed the little vampire.
I as well spruced up the blog with a splash of color. And, will continue to add music, of course. You all know I can’t help myself in that department. I’m happy to know the songs are being enjoyed. 😉 I’m sincere when I always make the comment that it is medicine.
When I signed on to write, I am aware I was at times either too quick and short on the support group threads or not detailed enough on the blog. My research, fatigue and boredom from some of my freelance jobs, got the best of me. However, I plan to change that.. along with mixing it up a little. You all know how draining the battle alone really can be. You also know the medical community would rather treat us for any ailment, other than Lyme. Why? We may never know. I’m sure there is some crooked, greedy or lack of intellect answer to it all. Nevertheless, no one knows this disease or our body, as we do.
I just accept it. There’s no other way. Other than how I react to it all.
Lastly, I am enjoying my new job writing for much more interesting gigs and since I have a long weekend coming up- & up late tonight, listening to music, I wanted to give a heads up to all who follow this I will be posting some new type of stories. (when time permits..) It will be an array of non-fiction stories from mine and other loved ones, lives. Maybe getting our scarred minds off all we have been through will be a refreshing, funny, or even a new kind of disturbing distraction from the battle and day to day responsibilities.
I will continue to look forward to hearing your stories as well!
