Health Update Thursday(9/8)

The verdict is in!

After my appointment in Madison yesterday, I STILL have Lyme. However, according to the doctor and his neat little machine, it's lessened since the last time he examined me.

And you know what? I SEE a difference!

That's all that really matters right? I still have the normal fatigue and pain, but I'm able to DO things (when forcing myself past all the fatigue and pain), and that's all that really matters to me :) And in all honesty, the daily pain has even gone down a couple numbers; where it was a 7 or 8 daily, it's not a 5 or 6!

Anyway, the doctor gave me another month of antibiotics (so no more sun for me for awhile), and a couple different types of homeopathic drops--I'm supposed to do everything I did before and go back to see him in two months.

That will be started today :)

Unfortunately, I am starting to get a little overwhelmed with everything that's on my plate lately, and I think when I get this way, my brain just shuts down O.o

I'm taking a couple days to see if I can catch up with school work and focus on starting this new stuff, but I will be trying to keep up with blogging and my business, too!

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thursday!

This is great news! it takes time, but hun you're on your way!
my brain shuts down too when my to-do list is too long, so i hear you on that one!


i know only what i saw in the documentary, but are you ever really cured of lymes disease? i got the idea that sometimes it just goes dormat for a while only to pop up again later?

I rejoice with you in you moment and hope the recession of symptoms continues to a point where living a normal life possible and pray that if it is going into a dormat stage that it lasts for a lllllllllllllooooooonnnnnnngggggg time! (like forever. but know that whatever happens, you will have supporters.

Kayla, I so happy to hear that improvements are being made, although unfortunately you still live with continual pain. That is NO fun. :-) Hang in there! You sound very busy with a lot on your plate - take it easy when you can. You can do it!
