For the past few weeks, it has been rare for me to be more than a few feet from my computer. The amount of work for Lyme Warrior seems to have multiplied over night. I’m struggling to squeeze in my jobs that pay for my treatment.
I usually start my day by pulling my phone out from under my pillow and catching up on anything I’ve missed while sleeping, then to breakfast and I usually work through the rest of the day until 10/11pm only breaking for meals and to let the dog out. Does the 10 minute drive to the post office to drop off orders count as a break? It does to me.
I absolutely know I’m overworking myself but there is so much that needs to be done its been hard to stop. When I take a LW break I then remember my other job tasks I have to do. If only I got paid for my LW hours I would be rolling in it!
I am extremely happy I have been making so much progress with my health. I’m doing short drives, I’m on my feet more…. the downside is I believe I got re-infected recently. I was walking outside and a monster of a horsefly bit me. I wouldn’t have thought much of it except for the red circle that lingered around it for a week. I’ve upped my herbs and gotten back on pulsed antibiotics to combat it. I’m not concerned about it, just not loving the extra herxing from trying to kill the new infection.
Other than that life is just work. Work enough to pay for herbs, try not to fall behind on all the things I need to do to make Lyme Warrior make real change, and try to maintain my sanity in my isolation. I’m very much looking forward to the holiday to be with my family and to hopefully peel myself away from the computer. It may not be ideal but sometimes you just have to put your nose to the grindstone to make things happen.
