Well the truth is that I'm not in remission. You know, it's amazing that even a doctor who claims to be Lyme literate can be wrong when it comes to determining if the infection within me has since given up. A couple months ago, I had seen a Lyme literate doctor who stated he believed I was in remission from Lyme Disease and that the remaining symptoms were "nerve damage". Of course I had to question this claim but I kept my curiosity to myself and decided to finally hand my trust over to a "professional". In a nut shell, he was dead wrong and my instincts were right. I not only still had an active Lyme infection but also coinfections.
I have since switched over to the Stephen Buhner protocol about a month ago. The protocol has been nothing but intriguing and effective to say the least. A couple days ago during the night, I awoke with these intense itches scattered across my body. It wasn't until the next morning that I found the culprit; herxing that took the form of many rashes. Though my body was plastered with these unsightly red rashes, I wore them with a sense of pride. A pride that arose from the confidence I developed in the protocol.
How am I feeling? The big question. I am feeling really good. Energy levels are plateauing and I have even picked up a part time job. Herxing has been nearly non existent due to the method of the Buhner protocol; such a beautiful reasoning exists at its core.
I'm reaching a point in my healing where I am starting to look forward to the treasures I once had unconditional access to before Lyme Disease. I'm excited to become social again, find love, further my education of my passions in life. I won't jump the gun or get ahead of myself here though for I am still recovering. I do assure myself though that all that makes life beautiful will return in due time.
If you ask my what I was grateful for, I would without hesitation state the intelligence of the human mind. It is the reason I was able to distinguish the truth from the lies that accompany Lyme Disease; which ultimately lead to my progressive healing.
I hope that you all never lose sight of what needs to be done in order to vanquish Lyme Disease. I can't begin to count the amount of times I've fallen off of the horse. It happens; we're human. But as you would expect to hear, deciding whether or not to get back on the horse is where the difference occurs. No doubt it's easier said than done but what is true is that it can be done.
