    Looking for your thoughts

    Do you think taking a Sea Moss supplement while having chronic Lyme disease can cause a herx reaction?? Have you experienced this? #LymeDisease #chroniclyme

    Vaccine or don't vaccine? #COVID19

    As the covid-19 vaccine hits the market, here in the UAE I know it won't be long until teachers are mandated to get the vaccine. It's early days still and I wish there was more insight on if this is recommended for #LymeDisease #chroniclyme patients... Thoughts?

    If you only knew how strong I was. #LymeDisease

    If you only knew how strong I was.

    If you only knew how hard I tried every day.
    If you only knew I cried every day.

    If you only knew how sad I was.
    If you only knew how bad it was.

    If you only ever gave me chance to explain.
    If you only ever really saw my true pain.

    If you only weren't so narrow minded.
    If you only cared we wouldn't be so divided.

    If only you knew how strong I was.
    If only you knew for how long I was.

    If only you knew my day starts and ends in tears.
    If only you knew I can't even count my fears.

    If only you knew my kids are my world.
    If only you knew I screamed till they whirled.

    If only you knew I hurt those closest to me.
    If only you knew I divert everything.

    If only you knew I fake my smile.
    If only you knew you're all in denial.

    If only you knew my pain wasn't so small.
    If only you knew you know nothing at all.

    So Damn Tired

    My body is battered
    And so damn tired.
    My brain is scattered,
    Jumbled and quagmired.
    I can’t feel anything.
    My heart is numb.
    Still I’m stunned by every sting.
    And pain makes me succumb—

    To these visions of dread,
    Voices howl in my head,
    I shatter into a billion pieces.
    I build colossal stone walls,
    Brace for plummeting falls,
    But the ache in my chest never ceases.
    And the hurt never heals or decreases.

    Continuing to feel alone #chroniclyme #InvisibleIllness

    I know there's a lot wrong with me physically right now. New things. Not supported as much as I'd like at home. I went to a Dr today and she blamed it on stress and I just felt so invalidated and angry. I need to be heard. I hate being sick for so long.
