I know it has been a very long time since my last post but a lot has been going on in my life and I finally have a minute to breathe. One of my greatest accomplishments since I have been away is getting Lyme Branch up and running. So if you haven't checked it out, go check it out now @ www.LymeBranch.org!
Lyme Branch also had its first event at the Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, TX. We had a great turn out for our first event and the live music by Matt Cline ROCKED!
I am currently working on more events to come this summer for Lyme Branch. So far we will more than likely have a kayak tournament in Louisiana and an event in our hometown of Mansfield, TX this summer.
As for my treatments it has been a bumpy road with many ups and downs. I have been steadily declining since Nov of last year and I have about bottomed out. Been very weak and tired for the last few months with it only getting extremely worse this last month. Doc has pulled out all the stops and is trying to keep me out of the hospital and get me back on track. I have also been seeing a pain management doc to get the pain under control (that is a HUGE blessing)! The pain has become relentless in the last few months and with each new week it gets stronger and stronger. I have a pain patch and a topical cream that I use now and so far so good. Doc has also got me back to sleeping with some heavy sedatives. I can't tell you what a world of difference getting some sleep has done for me! I have also been doing a liver flush and detox baths to keep the toxins at a low.
I go back in a few weeks with Kim and our new Lymie friend D. Hoping that it turns out to be a great visit all the way around.
I will try to post more frequently again and I will defiantly keep everyone posted on how I am doing.
Thank you everyone for all of your support, it means the world to me!
