"Who is Savadear?" is one of my most precious memories of living abroad, before I knew I had been sick with Lyme Disease. It's a cute story so if you haven't read it, check it out.
Looking back, I was not only having trouble progressing in French, but even English was getting difficult for me. Lyme was triggering huge memory gaps causing me forget simple words and phrases even in English. “Ça veut dire” would come in handy for a person struggling with Lyme Brain trying to learn French! Over the years it grew worse to the point I couldn’t read and I could barely write in English.
Today, under treatment, a lot of my cognition has returned but I still have a long way to go. Lately I've been on heavier treatment regimend which makes me much slower and functioning at about 25%. Still, I'm happy to have my reading and writing skills back. Baby steps!
No cash for the treat jar but you'd like to show the love? No problem! Connect with me on LinkedIn and endorse my creative writing skills. Thanks for the love!
