It's been about 7 months since I've been on my treatment protocol for Lyme Disease and I have to say it's still rough.
Undoubtedly, I have made great progress and am heading in the right direction. Symptoms are coming and going and overall, it's just a progressive state of healing. It just astounds me the length of time it takes to completely recover from this disease.
I think if someone asked me if I was given the opportunity to completely avoid contracting Lyme Disease in the first place, I'd say no. If I had the chance to completely eradicate this plague from my body, as impossible as it presents itself, I'd most likely decline the offer.
My refusal to accept such an offer should be a reflection of the confidence and faith I posses to beat this plaque on my own. I have accepted what I have encountered in this life. With everything experienced in life, whether it be positive or negative, one never stops learning to appreciate.
I've recently added Samento to my protocol and at the same time am completely backing off of the Oil of Oregano. This is just something I do every 2-3 months to keep the bacteria on their feet.
There is no doubt that this new combination of Cumanda and Samento is really stirring things up. I've heard people say this before and it's so true. If you're feeling good, simply up your dose or change your antibiotic and you'll see how sick you still are.
Jogging, push ups and sit ups have become a part of my daily routine again. The jogging is still a little difficult as it seems to exacerbate whatever the Samento has already messed with. I'm just trying to keep my mind in a good, healthy state. Being ill for so long and seeing the same things day after day after day really takes its toll on your mind. I'm trying to change things up to keep myself from losing my mind.
Tired of Lyme Updates
I do want to mention that I haven't been feeling my best lately so I apologize if things have been kind of stale around here. Once this fog lifts, which hopefully will be soon, I'll hopefully be able to create some new material.
Well I've got some good news and bad news. The bad news first.
The Tired of Lyme application for Android has been done away with at the current moment. Complications arose with the developer and it forced me into a position where I had no control over the app anymore. I can't blame them though because it was free to build the app. This isn't the end of the Tired of Lyme app. I'll keep my eyes peeled for new developers but for now, it no longer exists.
Now to the good news!
You have all probably noticed the addition of resources for Lyme Disease support groups to Tired of Lyme.com. I wanted to make it easy to find a support group online and in your local community so I've added the ability to do so. If you know of a support group in your community, please add it to the community support group page! If not, just fill out the submit a support group form and I'll take it from there.
I've decided to create a place for Lyme Blogs from around the net to congregate. One can now view the most current blog updates from Lyme Blogs around the net on the Featured Lyme Blog page. If you have a Lyme Blog, let me know and I'll feature it on Tired of Lyme!
I'm also excited about launching the Tired of Lyme Store. Believe it or not, I had no intentions of doing such a task until the day it launched. I think the creation of my new Lyme Disease support ribbon may have sparked that! If you have any ideas for items, send them my way!
Oh and if you haven't already, make sure you submit your symptoms to Tired of Lyme. The symptoms list is growing and I'm really impressed with the number of people who have responded to it. The symptom page seems to be a place people are understanding the true manifestations of Lyme Disease. You guys rock!
I just want to end this with saying I hope you all are holding strong! Sometimes it gets really hard to carry on but stay the course, please! If you feel your current doctor or treatment protocol isn't working, find yourself a new doctor. This is your life and no one, who has never had Lyme Disease, will truly know what we're enduring. So step up to the plate and be assertive in your quest to continuously seek answers to this mysterious challenge.
Every single one of use has that spark inside that fuels our desire to live in a state of tranquility. Every single one of use contains the will power to change what no longer benefits our current circumstances. All the power and will you need rests inside of you. Unleash it and accept no compromise that abridges your ability to fully recover!!
It can be done, it has been done and it will be done!!
