This month has been a month of posting about being thankful and sharing with others on social media. I will say though I have had a real struggle with my emotions over one thing.
I educate people about Lyme disease and I also hawk my wares by asking people if they might want to prevent it. The response I get is 95% the same: “I already know all about Lyme disease!” I admit, I get very agitated when this happens. So, why, I ask are so many people getting it?
What I really want to say is, will you please tell the doctors all you know? We really need your help! Erm, perhaps not, lol. The truth is no one is really interested in talking about it because it is either too scary or it is embarrassing in this age of information to admit no knowledge of what it is and how you get it. They trust information on the internet to be true and leave it at that.
In the midst of trying to find some way to get places to schedule classes, I found out my Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia is back in rare form. I am back on antibiotics and fighting the fight. Do I give up on trying to educate others, so they will be safe? No! I pull a meeting together to see how my friends and I can get information out there!
We concluded FEAR is the thing we need to overcome. With that in mind, I want to give an antidote I wrote about before for fear.
Forgive: Yourself and others.
Engage: In communication with someone / others.
Accept: you are a person with purpose.
Rethink: Your outlook.
This is what helps me. Also, I want to mention on this Wednesday before Thanksgiving how much I appreciate the people who sit with me and work with me at meeting and through all the work of trying to educate people about Lyme disease.
All of you are so amazing and are precious to me. If I could give you the world, I would.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Be fearless!
