April 22nd – I have accepted The Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge to write daily about my disease. #HAWMC @wegohealth
Write a poem about Lyme Disease – I wrote this poem about two years ago.
Week in Review
Four-week anniversary of nephew’s suicide; traveling through each hour as I did that day.
Final day of 22 month round of triple antibiotics to conquer Bartonella, a form of Lyme disease.
I bring cupcakes to my physician.
EMDR therapy; I think I am better from nephew’s death.
Bloodwork tests positive for Babesia, another form of Lyme disease, this one incurable.
I threaten to bring my physician a green smoothie filled with spinach and kale instead of cupcakes.
Anniversary of nephew’s funeral; my niece calls me and no one else.
28 year old Lymie friend found dead of a heart attack.
Seven injections in my back with 50% more medication than recommended to dull the pain.
End of the month; first time I made not a single sale in my job.
