Inspiration through Music

I’m seeing lots of posts of Lymies and Spoonies struggling. I too am in a lot of pain and am struggling with both addressing the pain and expressing it. A friend posted a status yesterday and I could tell she was getting to the end of her rope. For me, when I get to those moments of extreme trial and tribulation, I use little “tricks” to help me make it through… one more day, one more minute, one more breath. One of my favorite “tricks” is to sing this song to myself.

“We are going, heaven knows where we are going,
We’ll know we’re there.
We will get there, heaven knows how we will get there,
We know we will.

It will be hard we know
And the road will be muddy and rough,
But we’ll get there, heaven knows how we will get there,
We know we will.

We are going, heaven knows where we are going,
We’ll know we’re there.”

Intimate Strangers

While networking with a fellow Lymie around Lyme awareness today, she used the most fabulous term, “intimate strangers”. This resonated with me because that is truly how I feel about all of you, whether or not we have met in person. We have connected on a deeper level than most friends achieve after years. We know and understand the pain and struggles we go through daily. We share in the joy of the little triumphs (such as making it out of bed finally) and the larger ones (finishing a grueling course of antibiotics).

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to all you, my intimate strangers.
