It's Friday I'm In Love

Lately, I've had a bit of anxiety over the pups. They are both fine and quite healthy for seniors. They don't act much like seniors. They still demand their daily walks and adventures. I'm convinced daily exercise is what keeps them spry.  The problem is me. I'm the one who aged much faster than they […]

Looking Back

"Princess, do woo ever look back at the path woo took wondering if woo missed the scent of a nearby bunny?" "Why look back, Daddy-O? Been there, done that, bought the harness. I'm all about the bunnies and squirrels in the here and now!"

Back to Forward

Once upon a time, there was a boy who married a girl who worked for herself. This was an attractive feature to the boy as he was a bit older than girl. It meant that he could potentially retire early on her income. It was a good plan. Even the girl thought so because she […]

It's Just Biology

First, a few weeks ago, Mr. Wild Dingo had the good fortune of getting to pull out an 18" tape worm from Loki's butt. It was stuck and Loki begged Mr. Wild Dingo to help him get it out. Yup, this is the glamorous life, Internet!  So both he and Juno got de-wormed. Where he […]

Picking My Poison

"I forgot how chatty you used to be," said Mr. Wild Dingo. What is it they say about medicine? The dose makes the poison? Pick your poison Mr. Wild Dingo: chatty me or taciturn me? So things have literally been up and down like a roller coaster ride on high speed. This is a good […]

Pain is Toxins Leaving the Body

Detox. It’s such a contentious word in the medical community. I can feel your eyes rolling at the excessively-used, trendy term to sell healthcare products.  In fact, it's so contentious that a wellness specialist coined the term "retox" to address the negative connotations of with living deprived with the term "detox." But that's another story […]

Monday Morning Bee Like...

This is me. Only I was tossing my cookies rather than eating them like this bumble here. And my bucket is green. Lyme disease rocks.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

Last May, I was on my way off treatment for Lyme Disease and Co-infections. I was also practicing yoga again. By fall things went downhill. By December I couldn't get out of bed. Four years after starting treatment it’s the same thing but different pill jars. Finding new pill containers is my idea of indulging. […]

April Fools

I don't know about you all, but I'm feeling nostalgic for the days of when wearing Mom Jeans was the big scandal in Washington. (Thanks Obama!) It's exhausting waiting for this administration to implode. Of all the changes that this administration is doing, climate change policies and EPA-gutting seem the most serious to human beings. Everything […]

Days of our Chives

Life is is filled with infinite choices. With  Lyme disease, your choices are ruthlessly limited. I’m always measuring how many matches are in my book and deciding on how to use them. I don't get to cram in as much as a normal person can in a day. Instead, I basically have to choose one or […]

Four Years Treating and Babesia Just Won't Quit Me

I should have taken advantage of the rain this winter practicing rain drop photos, but Babesiosis is a bitch. Sometimes I think if it were only just Lyme disease and just Borrelia I had to manage, it would be a piece of cake. I've made tons of progress treating Lyme-MSIDS & CVID these past 3 […]

Laid Off from Lyme Disease

Is this drop in focus? I can't tell. It took a week for my new Lyme disease medication to arrive. It had to be compounded. I'd been relegated to the sofa. Headaches and vision problems have been, well, a problem for being able to function or focusing the lens of a camera. It’s embarrassing to […]

My Two Essential Ingredients in Lyme Disease Treatment

Thank dog and praise cheeses for these two. They've literally held me together the last few weeks as my health plummeted into Lyme disease hell. Surviving on 2-3 hours of sleep per night and all the other little goodies that come along with Neurological Lyme plus a brand-new infection has been peachy. This election season […]

Breakfast of Warriors

I used to measure PRs for a run or a bike ride. Now I measure PRs for how long I can stay off antibiotics before Neurological Lyme Disease returns. I had a 5 week PR a few months ago. Then recently a 2 week PR. I think I'm doing this Lyme-athlete thing all wrong. Yup, […]

Conflict Resolution

Today, a personal note on living with Lyme Disease for Lyme Disease Awareness Month. By now you've probably heard so many stories of people with Lyme and their symptoms. Maybe you've heard it brings joint pain and chronic fatigue. Or maybe you've heard it makes people foggy, gives them memory problems and unable to think. […]

Paleo! WTF? Halibut with Pancetta, Basil & Mushroom Butter Sauce

If someone told me I'd eventually go Paleo, I would have died laughing. Being gluten-free was hard enough! But after a month of having a Paleo diet, the pain levels in my body keep dropping week to week. Treating Lyme disease is not just killing pathogens. Lymies have to use every tool in the tool […]
