Today at the party though I was sadly reminded of how much my illness is effecting my life. Laughing most of it off, but crying inside for my former self. Joking about the fact that I can't remember simple instructions right after they were told to me. We were playing a baby shower game that the object was to not say the word "baby" if you did whoever caught you saying it could take your baby necklace, whoever had the most at the end won. Simple right? Literally right after I said the word and did not remember the rules of the game. Everyone laughed and so did I, but it terrifies me how much my mind is slipping.
I was stuttering and loosing my words and the pain in my back was horrid, but I made it through and I am glad I did. She was so happy and so genuinely surprised, it was awesome!
I also had a talk with the "Moms" at the party and low and behold one of them had Chronic Lyme Disease! The more I find out about this, the more I think "THIS IS IT", maybe this is my answer! The symptoms just seem to be undeniable, so maybe it is so. Another "Mom" there told me of her nuero problems and about something she contracted when she was younger maybe responsible for her issues now later in life. Could it not be so clear that things that we were exposed to as children could lay dormant for so long and then just "BOOM" hit you when you least expect it later in life?
It is crazy to think about, but I think it warrants an extensive look through. All in all today was educational and FUN!
**OH and to say the least....I did not win the "Baby" game! LOL
Love my friends :)
