There is one thing Lyme has taught me that is well worth sharing. Some of the best medicine isn’t prescribed by a doctor.

Here’s some of my favourite medicine.

The smell of pine trees and sunshine.

2014-12-09 08.13.57Posies of sweet little flowers from the garden.

2014-12-07 09.22.40-2The promise of rain on the wind.

2014-11-25 17.50.57Company, love and cuddles, and a soft bed with clean sheets.

2014-07-23 16.20.12Homemade ginger kombucha in my favourite ballerina glass.

2014-05-16 10.33.18Nurse Bert, the ever faithful hound, keeping me company even when it would be more fun to be outside chasing cows or going on farm exploration adventures with Harry.

2014-01-27 20.23.30Good books, sun-bright mornings, the smell of the ocean, music, wind in the trees, friendship, kindness, meditation, the softness of nightfall, cups of tea, moonlight, laughter, afternoon naps, love.

All of these things help heal me.

Maybe they will work magic for you too.

Thinking of you and sending love, Nicole xx
