Summary from the Last Month

I have been majorly slacking on my blogging. Sorry. So in the last month I have had multiple doctors appointments and each appointment I have left with encouraging news.  I am getting better, slowly but surely.  My blood work has been inconsistent and jumping around a bit, but overall nothing to worry about.    My life is like a roller coaster where I go from extreme good moments to extreme bad ones.  I have had a lot of nausea :( but I have medicine to help me cope.  I am trying to prevent the big swings by resting a lot before I have an event (like hanging out with a friend or going to a graduation party). I am getting better at anticipating what will be taxing on my body and how much I can handle. It was really encouraging to know that I am improving. I am trying to stay positive and know that there is life beyond Lyme disease.

Today, I would like to introduce you to my sidekick during my treatment: my diaper bag.


This bag holds EVERYTHING I need. I have all my medicine, syringes, alcohol wipes, hand sanitizer, drink holder, ice packs, infusion balls, and who knows what else!  I love this bag! Early on in my treatment I was laying in bed dreaming of a bag that would hold everything I needed, be water resistant if I spilled something, hold water bottles and my list went on and on. After a few hours thinking about it, it dawned on my that I was dreaming of a diaper bag!  That night I mustered up all my energy and headed to Target.  My perfect bag was sitting on the shelf waiting for me AND it is even lined in lime-green (the official color of Lyme disease)!
