A Relapse of Lyme Disease ~ The Treatment



That empty space is me contemplating the treatment


The treatment can make the symptoms worse than the disease

Plus the idea of the treatment…

thinking about the effects of long-term


can absolutely freak me out

If I let even one brain cell contemplate it…


I refuse to think about it

And I just wish I could forget it.

Why can I so easily forget things I want to remember

and yet

when I WANT to forget


Just one little thing…

it sits there

in the back of my mind

like a boulder

and even if ten men were to try to move it…

they couldn’t


It sits there…

Just like that


Lorrie ❤


Hello my friends!  I hope this beautiful Sunday finds you all living from your soul!

I am just over a month into treatment, and I won’t lie and say that it has been easy.  But I am constantly aware of how I am THINKING, and for the most part I have been in whatever moment I am in!  And in those moments things can change swiftly.

The FEAR I feel from thinking about the treatment can be overwhelming at times, but the alternative is to allow the bacteria to completely take over my body.  So I think positive thoughts, and I treat myself with love and kindness (a new paradigm I wish I knew about sooner 😉 )

I am BLESSITUDE!  I thank each and every one of you for the love and support that you so freely extend.  May you all live in a place of truth and love ❤

  2. I am happy you treat yourself with love and kindness. That is key, because when love fills your whole being, there will be no room for fear. Blessings and much love ❤️


  3. Dear Lorrie, isn’t it frustrating that treatment feels like the hardest part. In the big picture, not that I need to tell you any of this, treatment will become something you see in the rear view mirror getting smaller and smaller until it disappears, from your mind, and what lies ahead is your destination: BETTER. See you there! xoxo Harlon

    1. Yes, Harlon. I feel like we travel, if not on the same road at least a parallel one. I appreciate your words and I really like the idea of seeing it in the rear view mirror! I am slowly adjusting to life back on meds…there is a transition period…as I am sure you know. The hard part is trying to figure out how much my body can handle. Every day is different so there is no clear cut answer. But that I suppose is as lesson to truly ‘be in the moment…in the day!’ Thank you for your tender care…in am Blessitude ♡♡

  4. Hi Lorrie, you have made your choice of treatment so you must flow with it removing the fear and remaining in control on how you should work with it. This relapse seems to twist through your body. Even on meds you must clear your head keep the focus and guidance from your soul to get you through this. You have to live in the NOW because daily your life and health is changing. You may plan to do something one day and find you cannot do so as you have to focus on your health and rest. Healing is something so many people do not understand. It is a very serious time when going through healing correctly you have to give yourself time. Your body has to be able to rest to heal. Take care and Blessings to you.


    1. Thank you for this excellent advice!! In the past I pushed myself to do do do…mistakingly thinking that I had to be able to do everything I could always do when I was well. This time is different…I really listen on a daily basis to the needs of my body…for instance, I fell asleep on the couch just a little past 6pm last night…got up around 11pm and went immediately to sleep again. That’s a whole lot of hours to sleep…but if I could do it then I must have needed to do it. In the past I would have been very judgmental about that. Thank you for the gentle reminders to LISTEN to the inner guidance…I don’t think anyone can go wrong doing that! Hope you are well…and rocking the light ♡
