Has anyone ever read the Ray Bradbury short story, All Summer in a Day? It's about life on the planet Venus where the Sun is only visible for one hour every seven years. A little girl from Earth moves to Venus and her jealous schoolmates lock her in the closet when the sun comes out and she misses it.

On Sunday, I was a happy citizen of Venus. I had the most amazing day ever. I felt normal. Better than normal. I had energy, zero brain fog, no pain, nothing. It was like, for one perfect day Lyme didn't exist. It was, to say the least, bizarre and I took it easy regardless. I had brunch, we went furniture shopping, went to the bookstore, sat by the pool and talked to our neighbors and then played video games in the evening. Video games make me motion sick now. I used to be able to play for hours. It was weird and wonderful and I was so happy. It was like the clouds parted for one glorious hour on Venus and I got to see the sun.

But now it's back to the grind. Yesterday I was exhausted falling on my feet. The dizziness and brain fog returned. Today more of the same. Just achy and tired. I don't know what happened on Saturday, it was like a miracle. I felt like I did 3 years ago before I started feeling ill. I even wanted to vacuum! LOL

I am, by no means, making good progress on my Lyme killing herbs. I'm still on just a 1/2 drop of A-bab and have started Valtrex for Epstein Barr. Otherwise, I still have bartonella to contend with. No abx.

Weird, right? What happened? Anyone else have a day like that? I loved it. I want more.

Yes I did have days like that. And with treatment, they came more often. It was a ray of hope to me.

I am so happy it happened to you.

And I know that someday it will happen for a whole season.

Failures are useful because they tell what not to do next time

gosh, then they aren't really failures.... just lessons.

This is just one of those 'odd' things about these infections - it may be that everything 'came together perfectly' for that one day - your treatments, detoxing and a break in the progress of the infections - or it may have just been 'an odd day with no symptoms'. Seems many of us go through this. Symptoms sometimes wax and wane for no understandable reason.

The only thing we can do is as you did - take advantage of not having the more serious symptoms without overdoing our activity levels - which can be quite the challenge for some of us (like me. LOL!).

The very best things you can do is to keep on track with your treatments and detoxing and you should begin to have more days with lower symptoms.

And, congratulations on having a break!!

Happy you had that Kristen! It's a fortunate occurrence that gives us hope for more. A little blessing, if you will.

Thank you for sharing that bit of light with us, it's something we all relish in this journey and so glad when one of us has that kind of day.
