When you see a glass in front of you, do you view it as half-full or half-empty?
This really is a serious question you should look at; how do you view life?
When you are faced with a dire situation do you spring into action… or shut down completely?
Do you take flight, or do you fight?
When dealing with tick borne infections you need the self-discipline and the drive to shape your own life for the best possible outcome. No one else can do this for you.
If you need, reach out to an advocate, a mentor, or a Lyme Life Coach. (Yes, they exist!) You can write into a BorreliaEtc group for your area, or inquire at places like GLA’s Peer program.
In fact, if you are a patient (or if you have a family member with tick infections) please do yourself a huge favor and get The Lyme Ease Survival Guidebook by a dear friend of mine, Jenn Hyla.
It is a small book packed with great information on BorreliaEtc. And it’s very affordable. It will help you in “Separating Facts from Fiction to Educate and Empower Lyme Patients”
Jenn is a Lyme Conqueror who mentors Lyme Warriors. She’s been down this path herself, she has a lot of brilliant ideas and she holds online classes/workshops – or she will work with you directly via phone and/or email if she’s able! I cannot stress enough the value of this book.
If you find it a good read, please get a copy for your local doctors and nurses! Or your library! This is information that should be available to all. I’m educating a new primary care doctor about these infections and am bringing her book in today.
But that will have to be a topic for another time, have to get dressed.
