So my Nurse Practitioner ordered some blood work. The test results came back today. She said I tested positive for Lyme Disease. Honestly, I know very little about Lyme. Seems there are some horror stories out there but most cases resolve completely, especially when diagnosed early, as mine was.
I pulled a tick off my belly about three to four weeks ago. I did not get the common ( in 70-80%) red ring rash.
I now know two people who had Lyme and they both fully recovered.
Please don't leave comments of fear or horror or worst case scenarios.
I started a three week course of antibiotics. I will be feeling better quite soon. I'm just really tired and want to get some rest.
Even with not feeling well, I have been quite busy and productive. I continued to get things/ chores done in and around the house. I pushed myself and kept telling myself, "Yeah, I don't feel well, but I can get this done...or I can fold clothes for five minutes and take a break." I don't quit and nothing can keep me down.
My body is a fighting machine. This is just a little piddley thingy compared to other stuff I have endured and triumphed over.
Maybe I was too busy this summer. It's just time to slow down a bit and take a well deserved, short break:)
Be Well, Smile:), Thanks for reading!
