Hi All-

I just got back from doing the monthly
Full Moon Bicycle Ride -

It was Huge about 500 riders --
I stayed towards the front of the pack
for most of the ride -

Not bad for being over half a century young-

On one Long up hill I was able to look back
and see a Solid line of bikes at least a half
a mile long --Very Very Cool--
Everybody has those little Blinky lights
so it Looked Cool --

The ride starts at Midnight on a bridge
that goes over the river in the middle
of Austin --
The bridge was completely full with bikes --

Its been Real Hot here in Austin for
the last 3 weeks -103F today and about
95F when the ride started--

On the last ride I tore some muscles
in my left shoulder and and its been
hurting Alot --

It was Lucky tonight because there
was no Giant hills or I would of had to
bail out on the ride --

There was a few wrecks but no body got hurt-

A couple of riders got Tickets from the cops
but they broke the Golden Rule --
----- Dont Stop --->>>>> LOL

I had a Blast tonight --

So why am I telling you about the ride???

I have both Lyme and Babs for over 21 years-
18 years untreated --

I was so sick
I could not walk and had to be carried into
my LLMDs office on my first visit --

Treatment was Ruff - took Forever
and Defiantly No Fun--

But You CAN GET Better --I Have --Jay--

It is so promising to hear stories of recovery from people who have had this stuff for a long time. It definitely gives me hope.

Hey, Jay, that's great. I'm glad to hear you turned the corner. Last I remember you were reinfected by your friend's dog.

Keep up the good work!

I'm still struggling. Had a relapse two weeks ago and trying to pull out of it. I did make it through the school year though. I'm an educator. Now I have to pull myself together for the next year. Swine flu is going around these parts, though. Don't know if I can survive that one.

Best wishes!
