A Little Nicole Update

“People who want a cure, provided they can have it without pain, are like those who favour progress, provided they can have it without change.” ~ Anthony de Mello   So, here I am, still in hospital. There have been a few little bumps in the road, including a massive resurgence of lyme symptoms and […]

Lyme Eyes, Magic Eyes

“The eye through which I see God is the same eye through which God sees me; my eye and God’s eye are one eye, one seeing, one knowing, one love.” ~ Meister Eckhart, Sermons of Meister Eckhart   If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know: a) that I have Lyme disease b) that […]

Talking to Dragons

“Always speak politely to an enraged dragon.” ~ Steven Brust, Jhereg   It’s after 3am. An odd time to be posting a blog. Still. I’m wide awake. I might as well stay up now so that I can do my morning meditate soon, as is my daily practice. It’s been one of those nights. The […]

Lit up like a Lyme Green Christmas Tree

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” ~ William W. Purkey   Well, you know by now that when I’m quiet there’s a good reason. This time? My doctor recommended a new combination of Lyme drugs. Result? […]

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 […]

Attack of the Gorn

“Of all the things we can feel with our minds and bodies, severe pain is the purest, for it drives everything else from our awareness and focuses us as perfectly as we can ever be focused.” ~ Dean Koontz   There is this thing that happens to me on my current Lyme drugs. It started in […]

The ‘No Blog’ Blog…

“Sometimes even the mind’s greatest resolve is not enough to conquer the body’s own particular requirements. ~ Nicole Cody Sorry, Lovelies. No blog today. Can’t get out of bed, nor lift my head and everything hurts. Agonisingly so. Thank goodness for my iPad. Still, I am steadfast in walking this path and in my mind […]

Well, that was a bit premature…

“Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.”  ~ David G. Allen I was kind of hoping to be sleeping right now. It’s 2am, and I was only fretfully sleeping at best between 8 and 11pm. Now I’m wide awake and I know the […]

Sorry, I didn’t Blog!

“My head aches, my eyes burn, my arms and legs have given up, and my face in the mirror has a grayish cast. The bed, across the room, calls in its unmistakable lover’s croon, Come to me, come, only I can make you truly happy, oh, how happy I’ll make you, don’t resist, remember how […]

Taking a Dose of my Own Medicine

“Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.” ~ Lord Byron It’s ironic that the day after posting about my progress yesterday I found myself back in herxing land. Herxing is a side effect of the lyme bacteria inside me dying off and releasing their toxins as a parting gift. I haven’t felt this dreadful […]
