Why I failed (You all may think these are excuses.. you're probably right)

Saturday, February 11, 2012

First I got Lyme Disease
I was sick for a long, long time.
This brings us to 2011
I am still sick from Lyme's....
Then my best friend from high school died
Then my Boyfriend of 9 years father passed away
Then his Grandmother.
We had to spend most of the summer of 2011 taking care of her estate
As well as his other Grandmother's Estate who died awhile ago...
The grief is unbearable and I turn to food to ease the pain
My Cousin had an ectopic pregnancy, lost her twins and almost died her self
Stomach aches
Started getting massive Migraines
I have anxiety attacks almost daily
Legs hurt all the time, can even walk one mile let alone the 3-4 a day I used too.

2012
Sick for three weeks in January.
Stress
February; I rolled a Snow mobile on myself, still recovering from that.

I gave up. I do want to try again just don't see the point if I cant even walk... I am aiming for March first baring any medical complications. We will see what happens.

    Thank you. Lyme's really has been kicking my ass and the worst part is that people dont believe me. They think that I am faking it... Including my doctor... She thinks Im just fat and thinks is so disappointing I gained the weight back.

    I really am not faking! I get infections all the time let alone the pain in my legs. I dont know.... Some days I wish I could turn back time.... emoticon

    Believe me I know what your going through, I also have Lyme and it's pure hell!!!!
    I also got Fibromyalgia from the Lyme so double whammy and I know how difficult it is to do anything physical and how easy it is to gain weight and its not our fault!
    Anyone that has Lyme knows how difficult it is and how it can turn even a positive person into someone who gives up because your just so overwhelmed with pain,not being able to exercise and the weight is just piling on...
    Did you know that stress adds to the symptoms of Lyme and it sounds like with all these people that have passed away in your life you are under a lot of stress, so give yourself credit... these aren't excuse's it's just the way it is with Lyme.
    I try to think of it this way now, I'M NOT GOING TO LET THAT STUPID TICK RUIN ANYMORE OF MY LIFE THEN HE ALREADY HAS!!!!!
    Be strong!!!! Make little changes in your lifestyle they add up and I'm sending you a big hug because I know what it's like to live with pain every single day! emoticon
