One Year

It's been ONE year since I started treatment for Lyme Disease. I have one whole year behind me, thank god! It has been with out a doubt, the hardest year of my life. There have been many up's and down's, many sleepless nights, many extremely painful days, days where I wasn't sure how I was going to stand up right for the entire day, days hugging the toilet, and days I would pray and hope I wouldn't wake up in the morning.

What a difference a year can make. Now I can handle going to stores again and go grocery shopping with out feeling like I could die, I can handle some yard work, I can handle working 50 hours a week much better than before, I can keep up around the house a little easier, I have energy again, most days I can function on a normal amount of sleep, I am a better mother and wife, and when I have a bad lyme day or week I know I will be able to bounce back from it much easier than a year ago. Thank god I have a year of treatment under my belt! Now to keep trucking through and focusing on health!
