I have been sick for two years, in treatment for 15 months. I began treating bart in earnest in March, and it has been the magic bullet in my healing.
I cannot say that I am 100% - I still get occasional twitches in my left thumb, my ribs still ache sometimes, and my stomach is less than what it used to be.
That being said, I would call myself 98%. Here's the proof:
Today, we hosted my daughter's 5th birthday. There were 13 kiddos here, running around, acting like pirates, for 3 hours. I planned the whole thing, down to making the cake. It was a great party, and everyone had a wonderful time.
The party itself is great, but what is "over the top" is that I ENJOYED myself - I enjoyed planning, prepping, making and decorating the cake, putting together favors, etc. And I didn't DREAD the event, as I had dreaded so many events.
It's been done for almost two hours, and I don't need to go lie down. I feel "normal" tired after a big party, but not "lyme" tired.
So, I am passing this on to encourage all of you who think that there is no end. I know that every success story has helped to keep me motivated. They have helped me take those pills, avoid sugar at all costs, and take care of myself.
I wish you all as fantastic a weekend as I am having.
Take care, Rera2528
