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?
- Tired of Lyme's Social Network for Lymies - The launch was completely successful and the amount of people joining in the short period of time it's been open has actually surprised me. I receive incredible feedback on it as everyone is finding it to be a great place to just let lose and vent from Lyme Disease.
- Home Page Redesign - In case you haven't noticed, I changed the home page design.. again! Also the answer is yes if you were wondering if I rearrange my room as much as I change the home page design. I enjoy change and there is something psychologically moving when one purges. Out with the old and in with the new!
- New Articles - This is kind of inevitable as once my head is in the right place, I'll be writing more articles for tiredoflyme.com. I plan on addressing some more physical symptoms of Lyme Disease and the genius behind the Lyme spirochete. Also if you guys have any topics you'd like covered in future article, just let me know! Ideas are always appreciated.
I know that dealing with Lyme Disease is no easy task. It is the hardest challenge ever placed upon any of our shoulders. Doubt, depression and loss of hope and faith will surely arise during your journey and you have to accept that it's completely normal! I mean look at the life you and I are leading!! That doesn't mean though that there isn't room for determination, persistence and patience as what it will all comes down to is perspective. Which direction do you willing look towards?
You must realize that you posses the ability to alter any circumstances in your life. The change may not be prompt or it may occur suddenly but the fact is that you can change. You and only you can change your thoughts. You are the only one that can hear your soul. You must listen to what you really want and then follow through with actions that will implement the changes.
If there is one piece of information you can remember today and possibly retain for the rest of your life, it is that all the answers you will ever need in your life to maintain peace, happiness and tranquility, rest solely inside of you.
KEEP FIGHTING AND STAY THE COURSE!! For now, we'll remain Daydream Believers..
