A Rallying Cry

When first diagnosed with Lyme disease, and after learning more about it, my attitude (if indeed I had one; I was extremely sick) was one of “OK, I got this.”

When my doctor said that most likely Lyme had been in my system for awhile, perhaps 10-20 years before it wore me completely  down, and that it might take awhile before I would start feeling better, I thought “OK, I got this.”

When I passed the year mark of being in treatment, and I was not feeling much better, I still believed, “OK, I got this.”

Now, after almost 3 years of treatment, after endless months of medications and supplements, after having a PICC line, after thinking at times when I have been so very ill that I might die, or that I want to die to get some relief from these symptoms, after giving up so many things (activities, trips, relationships), I still know in my heart that  “I GOT THIS.”

Do you have a rallying cry or something you can tell yourself when things get tough? Please share!

Peace – B     P.S. I had to add the other 2 photos for sure 🙂

    I tell myself to stop being a sissy. Sometimes it’s all I’ve got. I remind myself on the weakest days that I’ve climbed mountains and I will do it again..

    When I was told that I had an “aggressive” cancer in my prostate I was scared to death. I tried to sit back and listen to Mozart. He calmed me down. But I didn’t have a rallying cry. Perhaps I should try to come up with one! Things have settled down, thank goodness. Good old Mozart!
