A year ago the girl in this picture was at the culmination of all her life’s work ..... a recent graduate of the College of Naturopathic Medicine, seasoned Ag academic , and well connected Culinary & Beverage Educator ... Ready to take the world by storm. After having spent nearly 6 years as a Alzheimer’s caregiver to my beloved dove 🕊 (my late Master Gardener 🙏🏻🌱 grandmother) .... the idle wait to the moment that was the rest of my life had arrived. . . .... and then . . .... and then .... . . and then .... I got Lyme Disease. . . At some point I plan to write an in-depth reflection on my journey to Lyme Disease Diagnosis, my decision not to use antibiotics and fight this battle naturopathically (more on the why behind this later) my treatment protocol , and my recovery... because there will in fact be one. (I’m not naive .... just a veteran overcomer 👌🏻) . . Till then I’ll be sharing my journey on this page (as well as all my original content) with my most palpable heartfelt aim at impacting the lives of all my other Lyme warriors, our community .... and our cure ✊🏻💚...... to really truly make Lyme disease “invisible” after all. . . .
Oh yea #rainorShine we had a blast !!!! #lymediseasewarrior I’ve been sharing how difficult it’s been for me lately with my Lyme disease and I’m NOT going to let it get the best of me ! I’ve been through much worse in my life & this is MY TIME !!! So even when I can’t imagine moving I start -#moving one leg at a time and thank #GOD for giving me strength #pushyourself#win#liveyourbestlife#motivate I hope if you’re reading this you dig a little deeper today if you aren’t feeling great ❤️
A quick snippet of some of the symptoms of Lyme, (full video on my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/CrystalSongHealing )
There’s early symptoms and then later symptoms. The later stage can often mimic other diseases or just be named ‘syndromes’ like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, even depression and psychiatric symptoms. There’s 15-30 different strains of Lyme as far as I have researched. These can manifest in different ways such as arthritis, skin rashes, neurological, or cardiac. I’ll post more specifics soon!
Today I hung out at The CBC and spoke on air with Ismaila Alfa! We talked about music and it was my first time ever speaking about Lyme Disease! . . My heart is so full with all the support I’ve been experiencing! You guys are all incredible!
For the last 3 years this disease has made me feel like a prisoner, trapped in my own body. :. I woke up feeling different yesterday. I had a burst of energy rolling out of bed. I was able to take a long shower and get fully ready without feeling like I was going to pass out. I was able to drive. I even went out for lunch and never thought twice about dizziness or fatigue. I could think clearly and engage in conversation without feeling nauseous. I laughed and played with my sweet girl without once pausing and praying that this horrible feeling would go away. :. I am not sure what the days to come will bring, but I know God is with me and He will continue to be my strength through this. I keep praying and know that in a few short months, lyme disease will be a distant memory of mine. I'll take the good days as they come. :. For once, I finally felt like me❤ :. #lymediseasewarrior#lyme#dailystruggle#seeingbetterdays#almostatthefinish#makethemostoflife#enjoythelittlethings#cherisheverymoment#feelingfree#hopeful#godiswithme#beatlyme#lymeawareness#myessentials
