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.
