I currently aim to write a blog post at least once a month. Those of you who have followed me from the start know that the rate at which I wrote was sometimes daily. Well why has the rate dropped so drastically? Well, to be blunt.. I'm healing.
3 days ago I hit the 9 month mark for my Lyme Disease protocol. As I should probably be feeling proud of myself for religiously adhering to it for so long, I feel otherwise. I'm growing impatient.
Believe me when I tell you that I have come to terms with Lyme Disease. I understand that I had to sacrifice all of the treasures of my life in order to preserve and salvage the one I hold most dear. My own life. It's just after being unwillingly obedient for such an extended duration, one naturally grows impatient.
I've made it clear that if I knew the exact date or at least the month of when I would achieve remission, I could guarantee that this fight would be in the bag but there is a problem. I don't know the date I'll achieve remission nor could I ever before that day comes. It's still not and will never be a reason to lose hope or doubt as we continue to endure.
From what I have gathered from the people whom I've talked with who reached the day we all yearn for, it takes roughly a year to a year and a half to reach remission form Lyme Disease. Obviously this is based off of a protocol that works and there are many. Some will require more time and some have done it in less but one must consider the many different factors that affect each of us differently such as coinfections, diet, environment, stress level, optimism, etc.
Also if you're on a protocol for Lyme Disease and it's not working, get yourself on a new one! Just because your protocol hasn't been working doesn't mean you need to lose faith or believe remission is out of your reach. It does mean that you just haven't found the right protocol yet. What works for one surely doesn't work for all.
The human body is a remarkable piece of engineering and if given the appropriate tools and circumstances, it can heal itself from just about anything. Why? Well because that is what it was designed to do. Whether you're consciously aware of it or not, your body is constantly performing functions in order to maintain life. So why not give it a helping hand?
Welcome to my blog!
The LyBlog will focus on my personal battle with chronic Lyme disease, which includes updates, progress reports, and personal experiences that encompass Lyme.
