Haven't really talked about it too much, but writing is therapy for me & maybe someone else will feel it, too... so here's some #LymeLife.
β€’
It's been a frequently weird, exhausting & confusing long distance run over the past few months. The momentary flashes of energy amidst a heavy & seemingly perpetual cyclone of fatigue. Suddenly remembering what my "normal" could be & was. Enjoying the nostalgia & moment as much as possible, not knowing how long it will last, & then, equally suddenly, having all of the energy violently stripped away from me. The moments ensuing inevitably lead to spending a large portion of every minute wondering who took my energy, where it disappeared to, when it would be returning, and: Why?
β€’
While wondering what my energy is up to, of course hoping it is having the time of its life somewhere else in the universe, I do genuinely try my best to fight off the irritation, ear ringing, desire to constantly be lying horizontally, water cravings, & phantom handcuffs predominantly strangling my wrists never letting me forget what the situation is. I try to find a way to enjoy the ten minute conversations with my mind where I do my best to persuade it that I can still be "normal". Asking it to let me open the door of energy inside of me despite not knowing where my energy went & being unsure of whether there is a door to open anymore. The mind humors me & enjoys the attention, but ultimately keeps the door closed despite desperate efforts to blindly try & kick it open anyways.
β€’
Of course, there's more. 🌹 But what a twisted irony: the place, the wilderness, where I feel most alive & full, where I go to rest, reinspire, & rejuvenate, could be the same place that altered my antibodies & created conditions so contrary to what I still seek it out for. The wilderness is obviously more than a tick infected by Borrelia that loves my wavy& thick hair, but it still gets me (also, maybe more importantly, shoutout to climate change, suburban development, & humans fucking w/ ecosystems/predators that can help keep tick pop steady).
β€’
Yet, the pull of the wild & my desire to fight for it only amplifies, one lap, cyclone, breath & door at a time. 🌲

Days like this πŸ™ƒπŸ‘Œ
