Simple Words of Encouragement

Simple Words of Encouragement

“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson Stay strong.    Keep fighting.    Never give up.   Sentiments of encouragement – and hashtags – I like to share quite often on social media.   Never intending to be trite, simply my way of reaching out my hand in yours. May this short post find you having a peaceful moment.  As this life we…

Positive Reflection is a Good Thing!

Positive Reflection is a Good Thing!

Sincerely wishing I had the intellectual wherewithal to share even a smidgen of wisdom, or offer a clever snippet of info.  Only a rambling, blathering, therapy session from this Lymie today, as there isn’t a spare speck of brain power to be had.  A rather common occurrence – ha!  Unsure if this is sad, humorous, or sadly humorous. 🤔 Even though I’m coming off a wonderful week of having family in town, I’m currently battling my emotions.  I’ve been feeling…

It’s My Bloggiversary!

It’s My Bloggiversary!

That’s right kids, I’ve been Blathering on now for a year.  Who knew I could ramble on for this long – umm – said no one ever who knows me! Living the Lyme life tends to provide plenty of material.  I do wish I was able to provide an update highlighting a miraculous recovery.  Believe me, when – and yes I am stating when – in fact this occurs, I will be shouting from the mountain tops.   In the meantime, back…

Disease How I Loathe Thee

Disease How I Loathe Thee

Disease, how do I loathe thee?  Let me count the ways. No clever poem to follow.  Merely stating my disdain – pure and absolute hatred – for all disease and sickness. Too many of my own family members and friends are currently coping with, or have battled illness.  Every color of awareness ribbon or bracelet donned and represented.   Makes accessorizing easier, but what a heavyhearted and unwanted fashion perk.   If I were to attempt to list everyone I know…

Silence is Golden

Silence is Golden

Hoping you all have been able to enjoy some summertime shenanigans.  This Lymie has been resting, but I plan to have a new Blathering coming your way soon.   Not a threat – but a promise! So until then – Silence is Golden! Wishing you all Happiness and Renewed Health. Terry 💚 The Blathering Lymie

Thankful for Simple Pleasures

Thankful for Simple Pleasures

Today, my blatherings lightly touch on how we humans should keep focus on the simple pleasures this glorious and gracious life here on earth provides.   When faced with the gruesome grind of daily living, it can be easy to take all we are given for granted. Holding your loved one’s hand, watching your children play, snuggling with your furry friend (meaning pet!), experiencing the sheer magic of a beautiful sunrise or sunset, joining friends for lunch – better yet…

Factual Rant About Lyme Disease

Factual Rant About Lyme Disease

A fellow Lyme Warrior – Lindsey Kozlowski – shared a posting on FaceBook, which I am fondly referring to as a Factual Rant about Lyme Disease.   Lindsey’s words are eloquent, poignant, and powerful.   I must admit, I am rather envious of her brilliance! This blog post is dedicated to sharing Lindsey’s message, with her permission of course.   So I shall sit back casually and comfy in my recliner, hit the send button, and let L.K.’s words do…

Why Lyme Disease Awareness is Important

Why Lyme Disease Awareness is Important

I’ve been rather silent with my blog postings as of late.  My current treatment protocol has been ramping up, which has left me mainly bedridden or couch-bound, fiercely trying to fight off these bad guys inside of my body.   On the positive side of feeling this lousy (which seems like an oxymoron), herxing – Herxheimer Reaction – is an indication my body is in fact killing off some bad guys. Rebuilding a damaged body left behind by decades of misdiagnoses…

So This Happened The Other Day

So This Happened The Other Day

Along this not so lovely, mysterious, and what seems to be never ending Lyme disease journey, I’ve had my share of scary and frightening “episodes”.  That is what MM (the hubs) and I refer to the sudden and unpredictable attacks that take over my body.  Throughout the years, too many episodes to count have landing me in the emergency room.  Based upon these past experiences, I have basically given up on going to the ER unless absolutely necessary.  I now…

Coping. Therapy. Life.

Coping. Therapy. Life.

Bear with me for a moment or two please, as this posting is a bit of a coping mechanism.  Therapy of sorts.  I am coming off of a solid 30 hour bender – the bed bound, higher than “normal” fever, extreme nausea, miserable beyond miserable, unintentional fasting, dehydrated, comatose, incoherent, involuntary hostage in my own body – kind of bender. Such is the life some days for this Lymie.  This stage, like all of the other stages/phases pass – eventually.  …
