Two weeks ago my naturopathic doctor diagnosed me with Lyme Disease. I wasn’t going to share this publically as I did not want people to see me and hold a vibration for me as sick. The reason I am telling now is I want to share my journey of Radical Self-Care.
I believe I’ve had this little bug for many years but because of my healthy lifestyle the symptoms were easily shrugged off. I knew back in December that 2012 was the year of bringing my body to its perfect state of health. Setting that intention late last year is what brought this dis-ease to the surface. Starting in January my symptoms started to pile up one after another. Before I was experiencing one or two that I could explain away as dietary or stress related. Now there was too many to ignore so I sought help. At first the diagnoses was a relief. I finally knew what was going on. Then I went into a bit of shock. Why would I create something like this?
Enter Teasel. This pretty little flower has the power to eradicate Lyme from my system. What I didn’t realize was how painful the cure would be. I have been barely functioning for the past two weeks. I am only doing what I have to do to keep my business going. This has been hard. I am one of those people who never feels they are doing enough. There has been tremendous guilt around what I am NOT getting done. Yesterday I got to a place of surrender. I was able to let go of the guilt and just be in the moment.
While talking to a friend I was mentioning how much money I was spending taking care of myself. She reflected back to me how I was demonstrating extreme Self Love. I love how that felt! For the first time I am truly demonstrating Extreme Self Love. I am worth every penny I’ve spent on me.
My doctor told me yesterday that the bugs die off in waves and that I had another week of discomfort. That gave me hope that I am on my way to my perfect state of health.
My next post will talk about my health care regime.
