Lyme and a Coconut

chronic lyme disease with a taste of nut

I Need a Tiny Cactus (video update)

Been meaning to write in this blog for a long time now. Been too busy or too sick. Or too sick wishing I could be too busy. Or busy enough to enjoy not being sick but then getting sick again.

It’s six days until the full moon. And you know what that means?

People without chronic lyme disease hear it’s the full moon and think, “oooh, pretty! Let’s all run outside and take a look!”

Those with chronic lyme disease be all like:

No. Not pretty at all. In fact, the full moon brings with it some of the worst pain I have ever experienced. The nerve and bone pain is indescribable.

I’m either lazy or it hurts too much to type. Maybe both. So I took the easy route and hit “record.”

Here’s the update on the blog that I’m sure you forgot about.

But all will be well. The moon will wax and wane. Tides will shift. The 70% of water in this body will rest. The spirochetes that do the jig during this time of the month will go back into hiding so well that tests will continue to not pick them up.

Hope does exist. As do tiny cacti. And that is what I hold onto (albeit gently. Prickly, you know).
