And then the Storm…

“Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder.”
~ Benjamin Alire Sáenz


Sunday was Drug Number Four Day in my current Lyme medication regime. Today is, too. Ever the optimist, I had told myself that this week would be better.


It’s worse.

The Universe is throwing all kind of weather at me, and then some. It’s an every-flavour storm.

There’s a grim kind of humour in that, though, don’t you think?

I’m so side-swiped by pain that I’ve stopped crying and started laughing.

There’s no point cowering in a corner. I’ll meet this thing head on. Today’s glorious experiment? I shall turn pain into some kind of good. I feel so fiercely alive, so bright with the charge of this corrosive force, that I might as well channel it into something.

I’ll keep you posted as to how I go.


Hi! I'm Nicole Cody. I am a writer, psychic, metaphysical teacher and organic farmer. I love to read, cook, walk on the beach, dance in the rain and grow things. Sometimes, to entertain my cows, I dance in my gumboots. Gumboot dancing is very under-rated.

  1. I love the picture you painted of you fighting this and laughing, can see you with some purple boxing gloves beating away these invaders of you body
    sending you love, light and blessings xxoo

  2. Use your light with that pain. Try and breathe into it and lighten it away. The breath is a great magic for pain. Love, light and rainbow energy coming your way. Loads of Love and Light

  3. It takes a whole lot of courage and stamina to maintain that position of always looking at the “bright side” of things, You are definitely a warrior! You will get through this, of that I have no doubt. Your devotion to life while still always thinking of others in such grueling times such as this, and still manage to laugh! You’re an amazing woman Nicole! I can picture you in a “Wonder Woman” costume for Halloween! Nicole the “super Hero”
