Excited to be sporting this look less and less! Both of the doctors I saw today were amazed by my progress. My blood pressure and heart rate no longer change beyond what is normal when I go from laying down to sitting and standing. Last time I went to the cardiologist(4 months ago) my pots was still severe even when I was on all those medications and IV fluids. Now I'm off them all and so much better. My cardiologist said she had never seen anything like it. Pretty good day πŸ‘πŸ½ #lovelife #hospitalgownglamour

Stumbling into the third month of the Lyme protocol i'm on feels like having my wisdom teeth extracted over and over again, like my very own Groundhog Day. The isolation can be emotionally crippling at best, soul destroying at worst but if I am extremely gentle then definitely heart-opening. As I tiptoe towards my 39th birthday with a nervous smile and a little hope, I wonder to myself, IS THIS IT? Or is it just the perfect opportunity to recommit to creating a deeply purpose-filled life overflowing with profound beauty? Sure, I may lose a few 'digits' along the way, maybe even my ego(one can only hope) but this is the disarming of my storied self and pain is undoubtedly my greatest teacher.

Sometimes I wonder what strangers think when they see my port. To me it's very noticeable.. but to be honest, it really doesn't matter.
I'm so grateful for this little weird device that's implanted in my chest - fused to my muscles, connected to a little tube threaded through my vein going directly to my heart. Sometimes it hurts, and I definitely have to be more cautious, but it is so worth having if it'll give me a chance to live.

I'm sorry, but going through chemo made me feel less nauseous then this IV therapy. #chelation #glutathione #FuckLyme

Missing out on our cabin again this year. Hoping to be feeling better for next year! ☹️ #cabinlife #cabinlove #fucklyme

For every good run there is a crash but after that, an even better comeback.

#thatfacewhen you're having a post-Lyme exhausted/ouchie bed day but then you realize you can't even remember the last time you had one!!! AND you were able to even do pig chores and make it to the chiro!! PROGRESS! (I can't believe I used to spend all day every day in bed feeling worse than this -- sending love and light to folks who are hurting.) #fucklyme #farmingafterlyme #chronicillnesswarrior πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ’š

"I'm thankful for my struggle because without it, I wouldn't have stumbled across my strength. πŸ’ͺ"

I've learned a lot through my journey with Lyme, but one thing sticks out the most. I don't know about you but most days feel like a blur to me. When I try and think back and remember moments, I'm often met with brain fog and confusion. It's as if the last 4+ years are one giant cloud of fog.

Although I work hard to not let this get me down, I've had to get creative with how I go about things. For one, I try and document everything. For a few reasons but mostly because I want to remember the things my brain won't retain. The memories, the good times, the bad times.. the in between, and the mundane moments that most take for granted.
I want to remember it all, because I know how it feels to not remember any of it.
And while I know I'll still be forgetful, and it may take a few minutes and some pictures to spark a memory.. I'll get there.

Some of my new protocol supplement additions + 2 of the test kits (food allergy and adrenal fatigue). There's so much money in this small stack of pills/test tubes. I really hope this new protocol helps. Still waiting on the rest of my supplements and my herbal formula to be delivered. Still have to pick up my rx's from the pharmacy. No doubt I will be busting my pill organizer back out before it's all said and done. I've been outlining goals that I want to start working on in the upcoming weeks as I begin this new protocol. -Becoming more strict about my diet: I need to do what's required to kill off the candida before we can go back to treating the Lyme, babesia and bartonella. -Giving up caffeine: With the almost constant severe fatigue it's easy to fall back into relying on caffeine to try to make it through the day. -Quitting smoking: this one is obvious. I quit a few years back but it didn't last and I've struggled to get back to that point. -Reducing stress: I am making changes where I can to reduce the outside stresses and allow my body more time to truly rest and heal. -Physical Therapy & strength training: I've slowly acquired a few things to begin working on building back up my muscles and trying to reverse some of the damage. The hard part is going to be reminding myself that this process is a marathon and not a sprint. I have to remember to take it step by step and be willing to make mistakes and know that sometimes setbacks are unavoidable. Most importantly, #iamtrying

Let's talk about yoga: Back in 2010 I started really doing yoga as an adjunct to running for flexibility. Now since getting sick, I do yoga as a means to heal body, mind and spirit. It's interesting as a male get funny looks talking openly about how much it's helped me. But I see more articles everyday about Navy Seals adopting yoga so the tide is slowly turning. In any event, stiffness is a huge obstacle for me. I wake up every morning barely able to get out of bed. My back is so stiff and I really feel like I'm 80. But keeping a regular yoga practice has really helped me stay limber even with the Lyme arthritis. And just helps nourish my body even though I know it's not right physically from these infections. Yoga really has pulled me up from some dark places that this disease has taken me down and I'm grateful to have yoga to fight back. .
