It's been difficult to come back here to Lymenet. It was once a home. I once "knew" each person on here: their struggles, their favorite advice, their victories, their defeats, I mourned their their losses and cheered them on. I tried to give some advice myself, once in a while.

Then I lowered down into the depths of the illness that took me for the ride of my life. I posted this here, on one of my darkest days. I thought that there was no way out.
http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/1/122805?

But, little did I know, I was just about to rise from the ashes.

Three months after that post. I updated my situation. So much better. Using herbs, changing diet. Then I went on with my life. After that, my family and I continued to get better and make more and more progress. I committed to formally studying herbalism and a whole new world opened up to me. We are all feeling better than ever. I have more vitality and zest for life than I ever had. And I am thankful for every minute of it .

I can now honestly say I have so much gratitude for having Lyme. Going down this path not only shifted my life direction, it gave me my whole self back. It required me to make difficult decisions, on my darkest days. Alone, on the floor, in tears. It taught me to follow my instincts. Do my research. Listen to my body. Search for the unknown.

I wrote my whole Lyme story out here, in case you want to read it. It needs some editing. But, you'll forgive me - I know.

(In one of my earlier, more hopeful days on LymeNet, I saw a post asking, "Does Anyone Ever Get Better?" The only responses were a handful of people saying yeah, people probably do but they go on living their lives and don't come back. I vowed then, if I ever got better I would come back. I may not be doing it as often as I had hoped, but I'm back (happy to see there is a Facebook presence, I'll join and perhaps help share my info there more regularly))

Hi welcome back . Glad to hear doing well.
Myself I agree with you on. I can now honestly say I have so much gratitude for having Lyme. Going down this path not only shifted my life direction, it gave me my whole self back.

It required me to make difficult decisions, on my darkest days. Alone, on the floor, in tears. It taught me to follow my instincts. Do my research. Listen to my body. Search for the unknown.

I have been in remission for a while now, and do make my presence known at lyme support groups still.

Whether sharing different protocols or just listening to them . Or if they want to hear my story, and to see smiles on their faces. Wow it can end and

That their is a light at end of tunnel and sharing and understanding what others are going through .

I think it's important to still speak out for those who can't whether signing petitions , rally , and other useful ideas like a specific letter writing campaign but I won't go into details on that one on the forums.

emailing or speaking with your local congress men getting lyme pamphlets bring them to work or just have some handy .

The forum's are good but seeing people in person is just so much better.

And to know when to keep quiet when you hear someone has another diagnosis but it could and more likely lyme and another tick borne illnesses.

That sort of bothers me but if they are satisfied with their diagnosis that lyme mimics .

I can't change that, you can lead a horse to water , but can't make it drink.
