A macro view of the Red Bottlebrush tree. A very close visual representation of what it’s like living with Lyme disease. With Lyme, life becomes so focused and minute tossed around with a bit of chaos. Recovery becomes a full-time job with 100% focus. So much so, I had to let go of my old life. And I’m not sorry for it.
Nothing changes your life more than dealing with a chronic illness that is shunned by the medical community and causes extreme loss in your life from bodily and mind functions to community connections. Lyme disease teaches you some hard lessons that can’t be taught by any other kind of self-induced suffering. I don’t love that I have Lyme disease but I am better for having it. Letting go of my old life was the healthiest thing I could ever do.
