 “You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” 
~ Morpheus, The Matrix

I have teetered between unwell and totally incapacitated for my entire adult life. And in all that time I’ve been searching for a solution.

I’ve ended up entertaining two enduring fantasies for the past ten years, both of them so deliciously appealing that I have run them over and over in my imagination, making them as tangible as possible.

The first is that I would find a genius diagnostic doctor like Dr Gregory House, the TV character who could get to the bottom of any medical mystery and create a decent clinical diagnosis and treatment path. This brilliant doctor would finally be the one to work out what was wrong with me.

The second is that I would find a magical pill that would miraculously cure me.

In the last year I’ve been blessed to have two doctors come into my life who’ve been able to give me that diagnosis. And I’ve ended up with magical pills that are returning me to health.

Once upon a time I thought my little fantasy was just a crazy feel-good distraction. But as I kept on dreaming it, it eventually started coming true. A doctor. A diagnosis. A magical pill. Me – well again.

After my visit with my Lyme Doctor yesterday I KNOW it’s not a fantasy. I’m on the path back to wellness, and I’m excited at the possibilities that lie ahead.

Don’t ever stop dreaming. You truly have no way of knowing how things might turn out. Sometimes that crazy idea you entertain on the darkest of nights turns out to be the truth that lights up your days.

Much love to you, Nicole xx

  7. I am so excited for you. How magical to be well and be able to live life without that ugly Lyme thing. Possibilities are endless no? Love and caring and a big hug.

  8. Hi, I’m new to your blog, story. It hits home for me. I don’t have Lyme but many autoimmune illnesses from what the drs THINK. im still after 12+ yrs searching for diagnosises. My life, my body is far from what it was, and what I want it to be. I also am empath, psychic etc.

    I’m now noticed this post was 2013. I am hopeful -for you- that all has improved greatly.

    I’ve been there, accused of Dr hopping. Accused of medication searching etc.
    When all I wish for is to be pain free, more energetic and my life back.
    I can say reading many of your articles, I’ve realized I have thought and spoke wrong words- complaining mostly. Being so tired of all of these physical problems and all of my limitations. I do have a magnificent husband -married almost 2 yrs ago. I’m very grateful we were lead to each other.
    I’m not sure why I’m commenting , except for the fact that your story hit home for me.
    My eyes are opened, thanks to you. I need to manifest, visualize what I want and need for my body, my life, my true desires are, instead of always seeing the horrendous pain, the illnesses, limitations.
    I thank you for sharing your story.

    You are an inspiration.
    I wish the best for you.
