Checking In

Hi guys! I just wanted to check in with you all. And also I wanted to ask something of you. If you know any one, or struggle with Lyme Disease yourself, would you please message me your story? I think it's so important to find people who are going through a similar struggle as you. I've had the blessing of connecting with a few people who have also struggled with it, and it is honestly so encouraging. I would love to hear your story!

This week was probably the best week I've had in a very long time. I went out dancing with some friends and stayed out late laughing and having so much fun! I wasn't weak or tired and I didn't want to leave so I could sleep or be alone. There was no anxiety or depression. It was AMAZING! I actually felt Alive. The whole week I made wonderful memories and was truly enjoying myself! I have to admit though, today has been pretty hard. I left a dinner early last night because I literally could not stay awake. This morning I had planned on going to the gym but midway through breakfast I nearly blacked out. One minute was all it took for me to go from cooking some eggs, to sitting with my head between my knees gasping for air. I was drenched in sweat and my hands were shaking uncontrollably- then I had this weird sensation where it felt like someone was taking thousands of needles and poking me all over with them. I didn't know if I was going to throw up or faint or what was going to happen! Just trying to calm down the rest of the day..

I wish I could just be cuddled up in a hotel somewhere sipping some tea and looking out at the view. Maybe Venice? ;)

I'm feeling much better now and just taking it easy. Have any of you ever experienced something like this? If so, let me know in the comments!

  1. The black out/pins and needles feeling comes right before fainting. Had it been a while since you'd eaten or maybe did you push yourself too hard the day prior? Could be a number of things, but that's definitely what happens right before someone passes out. I speak from experience. :/ hang in there! I'm glad you have had so many full & joyous days! <3
