With another doctor visit under my belt, I am hoping for a better outcome. I have started a new regiment of antibiotics because the old ones just weren't doing the trick. My Dr. says "Cheer up Critter I am going to make you better!" I believe him, he is a man of faith and I am blessed that he has a healing touch in medicine.
I have learned alot since this process started about myself, family, friends and life period. It has all been a challenge with the ups and downs of this disease and the way people treat me. I learned that alot of people say they understand and truth is they wouldn't understand unless they had it to. People you thought were your friends turning their backs to you, even family. It makes the down part of this disease or any chronic disease a lesson learned.
Even with all the down parts, I think the ups weigh so much more. The upside to this disease is that I learned I am strong and a fighter. I will not give up on my health, my family, friends or life. These are the things that lift me out of bed when I am in agony from the pain. Those are the things that make my life worth everything. I have been positive this entire time because I knew a long time ago something was really wrong and I grieved for a life that I had not even lost yet. I came out a better person and so much stronger than I was before. It has made me stand up and speak up when someone treats me badly or with no respect. It makes me fight everyday to survive Lyme Disease and Lupus at the same time. Its a battle, and I will win the war!
With angels by my side and a loyal team of supporters I will be able to push through and help others like myself as well. I can't tell you how many people I have helped in the short period of time that I have known about Chronic Lyme Disease. I have a passion for helping and caring for others. I really wanted to be a nurse and one day I hope to complete that goal. To all the people I have helped just remember I am always here for you no matter what and I will always have your back and be in your corner to help you fight.
Together we will beat Chronic Lyme Disease! I hope that all the people out there educate themselves by reading up on Lyme Disease. Everyone you know could benefit from having that knowledge. In the last week I have educated a dozen people on Lyme Disease and they have never even heard of it before. Lyme is a silent epidemic and we all need to pull together to make things happen. This is why we formed Lyme Branch a place were someone can turn to when they need help.
Lyme Branch will be successful because we care and we genuinely want to help others. This has turned out to be my calling in life and I plan to follow this dream till the end of time.
So BRANCH OUT. BITE BACK. SAVE A LIFE.
Scriptures for Healing & The Sick
26 saying, “If you will diligently listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and do that which is right in his eyes, and give ear to his commandments and keep all his statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you that I put on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord, your healer.”
15 And the Lord will take away from you all sickness, and none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which you knew, will he inflict on you, but he will lay them on all who hate you.
25 You shall serve the Lord your God, and he will bless your bread and your water, and I will take sickness away from among you. 26 None shall miscarry or be barren in your land; I will fulfill the number of your days.
4 Surely he has borne our griefs
and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken,
smitten by God, and afflicted.
16 That evening they brought to him many who were oppressed by demons, and he cast out the spirits with a word and healed all who were sick. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.”
9 So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live.
13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— 14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
103:1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.
23 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people.
35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.
15 Jesus, aware of this, withdrew from there. And many followed him, and he healed them all
14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
35 And when the men of that place recognized him, they sent around to all that region and brought to him all who were sick 36 and implored him that they might only touch the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.
17 And he came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, 18 who came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. And those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19 And all the crowd sought to touch him, for power came out from him and healed them all.
14 And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed and ran up to him and greeted him. 16 And he asked them, “What are you arguing about with them?” 17 And someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit that makes him mute. 18 And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 And he answered them, “O faithless generation, how long am I to be with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought the boy to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it convulsed the boy, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. 21 And Jesus asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood. 22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!” 25 And when Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, “You mute and deaf spirit, I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.” 26 And after crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, “He is dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he arose. 28 And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?” 29 And he said to them, “This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer.”
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
3 John 1:2
2 Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
1 Peter 2:24
24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
