During the initial crisis we were in the process
of survival, putting all our energies into staying alive, fighting the
disease, battling to stay in our body. Automatically our life on the "outside"
got put on hold, including our significant relationships, because now our
priority was to tend to getting healthy again.
... and We Learned
What did you learn that you would not
have learned if you did not have the experience of Lyme disease?
We learned about things we may never
have been interested in ever learning.
We learned about bacteria's, insects,
zoonosis, symptoms, diseases, nutrition, balancing the body, politics of
medical, health, pharmas...
We learned about elongated rashes,
circular rashes, all kinds of rashes.
We learned about Lyme Disease, Bartonella,
Babesiosis, Mycoplasma, and all the kinds of junk a tick can possibly regurgitate
during his feed on our sweet blood.
We learned and we learned and we learned
how to treat our symptoms.
We experimented and used ourselves
as the lab rat.
We learned how to be kind to ourselves...
to genuinely love ourselves unconditionally.
We learned to love others by giving
them understanding, compassion, being a good listener, being sensitive
to their problems...
We learned how to inform people about
nasty bug bites.
We learned how to share our information
with others who suspected or have the disease.
We learned how to research.
We learned to lean on our Higher Power.
We learned we were stronger then we
ever knew we could be.
We became wiser.
And for some of us, even when deep
under a neuroborreliosis fog, our disease motivated us to learned how to
use a computer, how to research, how to use email and how to join a Yahoo
Group, just to find answers to our ill health.
