I have had an amazing thing happen. For over ten years it was thought by me and my physicians that I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Oh yeah, and a case of Lyme disease.
I have had a very serious case of Lyme that went undiagnosed for 15 years while I laid flat on my back in bed.
Lyme is not just a single infection, but several that require multiple antibiotics.
Four years ago, I started treatment for Lyme.
Finally, last September, my Lyme doctor prescribed a new antibiotic he had not previously mused.
I started feeling way better in November and December. Right now, I’m feeling better than I have in almost 20 years.
I still have pain attacks every so often. No one will probably ever know what those are from. But other than that, I appear to be doing very well.
My body is terribly deconditioned. It’s hard to tell exactly what my status is physically. But neurologically, things have really improved. I’m able to read a book now. Another first in almost 20 years.
This is where the squirrel comes in. My husband and I went to a park last week for the first time in nearly 20 years.
As we walked along a deserted path, I looked up and here was this squirrel just posing for me. Wow! It was amazing!
We walked into a swampy area onto a bridge. I was looking through my iPhone camera. All of a sudden, from under the bridge quietly swam eight ducks to feed.
I got some wonderful shots of them feeding. It was like a surreal dream, to be back amongst Mother Nature and her children.
I’m incredibly grateful to have my health back. I’m almost afraid to say this. As I don’t know if it’s true. It kind of feels that way except for the pain.
