Sharon’s Annual Letter – a Little Late

Posted on Jan 7

Dearest Friends and Family, As I prepare to write each year’s letter, I reread the previous year’s letters. Rereading my 2016 letter was like reopening a fresh wound and rubbing salt in it. My grief has “improved,” lessening in intensity and frequency, but it remains constant. I have always believed that even our worst moments offer gifts, if not immediately, eventually. I know God is always with me, guiding me to my next growth opportunity. Work Jeff is continuing with Home Equity Builders (www.hebinc.com). We are readying for a big master bath renovation. I am continuing with www.myNeighborsNetwork.com. Gifts At the end of February, I was dreading the first anniversary of Dad’s admission to the hospital and the 26 days that followed. That same week, I started dreaming in images, something I have never done before in 54 years. It became so intense and obsessive, I bought some paint and brushes and try to paint what I saw in my dreams. I had never painted, drawn, or done anything artistic before that week. The entire month of March, through...

Miscellaneous Aids During Treatment

Posted on Dec 5

I am reprinting this chapter from our book, Lyme Savvy: Treatment Insights for Lyme Patients and Practitioners because i think it might help you develop your own Christmas list and your own “how to survive the holiday” ideas . . . Miscellaneous Aids During Treatment Sharon I used to believe when I got sick, I could go to the doctor, get a prescription, take a pill, and I would be healed of whatever ailment had inhabited my body. I used to believe a holistic approach to health and well-being was a nice thought, a possible avenue, but something that mostly appealed to those “hippies” or those with a lot of money to throw around. I used to believe organic food was another way to rip off the customer at the checkout line. And then I got the Lyme Disease diagnosis. Dr. Mozayeni, with his credentials and research strengths, advised me at my second appointment to go “organic.” Some of my blood work came back showing I had significant levels of arsenic in my blood. I completely understand the panic...

Imperfect Holidays

Posted on Nov 23

Five years ago, Stephen had surgery on his shredded collarbone the day after Thanksgiving. He was miserable that entire holiday. Another Thanksgiving, Joey had strep throat and Jeff stayed home with him instead of joining the rest of the family. We brought leftovers, but . . . One Christmas, a relative’s oven broke and the turkey was not cooked completely – some guests didn’t realize until they had eaten some. On our wedding day, the airlines canceled our flight and we had to rush to the airport to catch another flight. We were in the back of the limo eating our dinner with our fingers b/c the caterer forgot to include utensils. We spent hours in the Tampa airport trying to get to Ft. Myers. The Christmas before Stephen was born, I was on bedrest for ten weeks – I could only get vertical to shower every other day and to use the bathroom. On New Year’s Eve, 2014, Jeff’s dad died at 12:30 in the afternoon. On Good Friday, 2016, Dad died at 5:55 am. Not all holidays...
