Today has been a tough day for me. Really the last few days have been… well if I’m being completely honest this whole year has been tough. My Lyme symptoms are slowly getting worse. I can’t afford all of my supplements if I still want to pay all my bills. My stress levels are growing. The infamous rock and a hard place, and I’m right in the middle of them. After my week long trip out to Reno, I am extremely hopeful that I can get the treatment I need at Sierra Integrative.
However the large hurdle I have to overcome is the money. My frustration towards the CDC and government is growing and growing. I honestly believe Lyme Disease is an epidemic and there are hundreds of thousands of people out there with this awful disease. Most people don’t even know they have it. I guess I am lucky in that aspect. I could feel this bad and not know what was wrong with me, like a lot of people out there.
I finally uploaded some pictures that I took while in Reno. I never adjusted to the time difference, so I was able to enjoy the sunrise each morning. I never thought I would say this, but I highly enjoyed that.
