Lyme Lags

I’ve been skipping a bunch of days on SWS recently due to spending every moment of my days in such crushing full body pain that it’s difficult to move…even breathe. It’s utterly indescribable (this is post is punctuated with centipede monsters because a search for “spirochete monsters” turns up nothing).



This is nothing new. I’ve had pain of this kind without one second of relief for eight years straight. I do my best to push through it, despite being housebound since 2011.


But it has reached unprecedented heights, and there have been massive delays beyond my control and allergies to all of my Lyme Disease treatment options thus far. That’s the worst part…feeling these bugs squeeze the life out of me in the most slow, agonizing way without any major recourse in the immediate future.


I’ll be attempting to orchestrate treatment through my diagnosing physician on Monday via phone, although he is across the country (it takes months to years to get in with a Lyme literate doctor so I still have months to go despite making an appointment immediately upon diagnosis).


In the meantime, forgive me if I miss a day here and there!

    Take all the time you need we will all understand. At least we know it’s Lyme disease. Heard people being diagnosed with Lyme is at an all time high. You are in my thoughts and prayers, hope help and relief come soon.

  2. Sending you all the strength I can spare and then some. I’m in awe at your positivity at the face of all your struggling, and very happy about it: the most important thing (at least so I’ve found) is to have faith in the future.

  3. I can’t even imagine how difficult this is for you. I have fibro but at least I have a few okay days.
    We will all understand any time you take off. Your site is so cool I would still visit if you only posted once a year!

      Awww…thanks, Cyn! It’s really hard to keep up with the obsessive networking people do for their sites these days (I do precisely NONE), so I appreciate the loyalty.
