    Lyme takes so much from us and makes every day tasks so much more complicated.

  2. Valerie says:

    So true Shelley. Even simple tasks loom like giants these days. Thanks for the visit. Blessings, Valerie

  3. Kim says:

    Thank you for sharing – I have fibro and have not been tested for lyme yet. There are so many similarities.

  4. Valerie says:

    Hi Kim, I was just diagnosed with Lyme this past March, after suffering with Fibromyalgia for many years. I was tested through a company in Germany and finally got the answers I had been searching for. There are SO many similarities with Fibro and Lyme. Keep encouraged and thank you so much for the comment and dropping by. Blessings, Valerie

      Dear Mom and Dad, I love you more than words can say. I wish I had more energy to visit with you more than I do. You already do a great deal to help me and the kids out. I couldn’t do what I do without you. I appreciate your love and care. I will keep your offer to help with “life” and let you know when I really need it. xoxo Love always,Val

  6. Hi,

    My chronic illness, MS, does not dictate what I do in my life, but it does change the ways I do things.

    • ValerieB says:

      Hi Stephen,
      Thank you for your kind comment. Unfortunately right now my symptoms are so severe that they do dictate somewhat the things that I choose to do. There are some things that I simply am not able to do. I am hoping for the day when this will change, but until then I am “keeping on” and trying to find the silver lining in it all. Blessings for your journey with MS. Sincerely,
      Valerie B.

    I want to cry for you, because I can so acutely relate to your struggles. Even as an Occupational therapist, trained in energy conservation techniques, there is still never enough in me to do the things I want and need to do for me and my family. I agree about finding the silver lining or blessings in everyday, otherwise the burden can overtake you. I am still coming acceptance with the following spiritual perspective – “thy will be done.” Please let this cup pass, but if it cannot now, or even ever, please let it be for God’s goodness in my life, the life of my spouse and children, my family and friends, and the community who so graciously supports me. Because in that focus, I may be able to achieve more in my life than if I was healthy. And that, is beautiful.

      Dear Becca,
      Your comment is so inspiring. I love the way you accept God’s will in your life. I need to be more like this too. Thank you so much for your kindness and for reading. Wishing for you extra energy to do what you have to do and joy in your heart. Blessings, Valerie

    My days are very slow moving and calculated too.
