“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.”
~ Winston S. Churchill
In the end, it went well with my lyme doctors yesterday.
Thanks to everyone who sent me well wishes and support. It means so much to me. 🙂
Here’s the good news. I AM stronger. My organs are functioning better. My brain is working better. My heart health continues to improve. My immune system and hormonal systems are slowly coming back to life. Some are still not looking great, but overall my upward trend is clear.
I was close to dying when I finally began treatment, and there is much collateral damage done after thirty years of undiagnosed lyme disease. It’s still a long road, my doctors stressed. But they stressed this as they smiled and talked about how far I’ve come and what my next treatment steps will be.
We’re giving my body a rest from treating lyme and co-infections now. Instead we are rebuilding. Strengthening my body’s natural functions and defences. Rebalancing and creating a healing space. Improving all of my detox pathways.
There will be time in the future for more aggressive lyme treatment, but not now.
And when that time comes I will be stronger still. My body will cope better. It won’t need to be so brutal.
One way or another, I am winning this fight.
Slower than I would have liked (I’m in a hurry to get my health back. Wouldn’t you be?), but I’ll take slow progress over no progress any day.
I have my eyes firmly focused on the road ahead. No looking back for me.
