A letter dedicated to individuals with Lyme disease or MSIDS, or multiple systemic infectious disease syndrome.
Dear Lyme victim,
Healing is within you. Repeat, Healing is within you. You have the power to heal. Wellness is achieved by a positive attitude and by the simple fact that your body was designed to be disease free and balanced. The human body has an innate ability that provides immunity. The body can protect itself against foreign material called pathogens. The body has the ability to heal. To achieve wellness you need to bring balance back to the body. You can do this.
You need to know that Lyme does not define you. Often times one becomes overwhelmed and has no idea where to search or what to do when faced with Lyme disease. Often you can’t find or can’t afford the highly specialized doctors you read about. By joining this group you have taken your first step to wellness. You can beat this disease alone and within a budget. The key is to not get overwhelmed. Address one piece of the puzzle at a time. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and your condition is beatable.
The feeling of being alone can be overwhelming especially when you look so perfectly normal. Most people don’t really see you. They do not see the red inflamed rash on your neck and chest or if they do they just think wow you got some sun. They don’t look in your eyes to see the fog or glassy appearance. The extra pounds they see as normal and not associated with disease. They don’t notice your hair falling out or how you need to take a break when walking a flight of stairs. Lyme disease affects us on the inside. Family members even sometimes join the “it’s all in your head” thinkers. The Lyme community is working to bring awareness but until everyone understands the enormity of the disease you will need to work a little harder. It is challenging but it can be done. Look for support through groups like this and surround yourself with individuals who can help you on your journey. The bottom line is that this disease forces you to develop the inner strength you will need to beat Lyme disease into remission.
You need to educate yourself. You need to own your wellness and health. You need to become responsible for yourself and become your own advocate. No doctor or specialist can do this for you. You need to do it! You need to learn and understand everything about the disease. This is not overwhelming when done slowly. Slow and steady is the key to winning the race. Start by looking in the file section. And reading all the files that interest you. There is a lot of information there by people just like you who are on the same journey you are.
Once you decide to become your own advocate you need to make a plan and chose a direction. I found that you can beat the disease but if you do not treat the whole body Lyme and its co-infections can come back. If you treat in the right order you will lessen Herx symptoms and make the healing journey shorter.
You have been given a journey that can make you stronger, healthier, and freer, with better friends and a better quality of life. Take the challenge. You can heal your body knows how, you just need to help and support it so you can overcome this disease.
One who suffered and successfully reached success against this terrible disease that use to describe me.
