“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”
~ Helen Keller (June, 1880 – June, 1968)
I’d love to be blogging something wonderful for you, and indeed that was my intention – I’ve got so much good stuff planned – but the past few days I’ve been struggling with some severe herxing reactions from my Lyme meds.
As the antibiotics kill off the Borrelia bacteria in my body, they release potent toxins which make me feel quite dreadful. Fevers, chest pain, rashes, joint pain, muscle spasms, sleep disturbance, nausea and all those nasty bits that go with it, wonky eyes and headaches.
Sorry, that’s not very exciting reading for you, and it’s certainly not thrilling at my end. (And I still have years of this therapy to go…) But that’s the nature of chronic illness. You have your good days and your bad, and you have to make the best of it. No point in complaining – you just learn to hang in there through the low times until there’s an upwards swing again.
So until I’m feeling a little brighter here’s some distraction for us.
My little farmhouse is filled with flowers, courtesy of a big bucket of dahlias from the farmers up the road. I hope they give you some of the same happiness they’ve given me.
Flowers hold a strong positive and healing vibration which emanates out and uplifts everything around them. Which flowers, shapes and colours do you resonate with most?
And for all of you dealing with chronic illness, or with the care of those with illness and disability, I’m sending all my love to you! Know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Hopefully me and my blog will soon be back to normal programming…
