Is there ever any good news with lyme disease? Well, so far I got to skip the whole low rider blue jeans and T-back underwear craze, A-line tops and dresses, and babydoll tops that make everyone (even 2 year olds) look pregnant.
It seems like all I ever read is bad stuff and it seems like if you have lyme you're pretty much stuck like this. I have been stuck like this for 9 years (this June).
People must recover. I just can't wrap my head around the idea that once you get bitten your life is over. 9 years and I still can't wrap my head around it either, but many states have decriminalized marijuana and I hear Illinois is looking into approving medical marijuana..... so it's not ALL bad.
Because if that's the way it is, I don't know why I'm spending so much money trying to get better. The will of the human body/mind/soul to survive is amazing. I think that's why I spend the money.... but, I'm very fortunate I have Medicare, CIGNA and a little money. It's this nagging belief that "tomorrow" may be better than today.
I realize it takes a long time, but I have been at this a long time. I just wish the news was more positive sometimes. That would be a blessing. Might even help me get through the day. Refer to first answer..... or look at it this way, you get to live in pajamas and see how fast you can wear out a robe.All the best -
