Your Journey

It’s About You

Earlier, I said this about me.  And now I’m going to say it about you:

There’s more to you than this illness.

Things won’t exactly be the same.

This is a life-altering disease.

But you still get to decide how to live it.

For me, it was my 9:00 A.M. appointment on July 12, 2012 with Dr. Eboni Cornish in Reston, VA.

Up to that point, it was so much wasted time, energy and medications, chasing after one misdiagnosis after another.

Get on with your Life

Before Lyme Disease, I was physically active as a skier, runner, cyclist, gym rat and more.

I was a traveler, a sculptor, a therapist and more.

I can’t do all of those physical activities now, but I’ve kept on exercising.   I’ve kept up with my passion for art.

I haven’t worked since 2010.  And there are times I feel that I’ve been robbed.

But I also look at my life with Lyme disease and see the positives.

It has made me focus on the more important things in my life. 

I’ve always been a spiritual person, but now, even more so.

It has made me listen to myself.

So, if you were to ask me: Keep exercising.  Believe in a higher power.  Listen to yourself.
