Saying Goodbye to Lilac and Lyme
My dear readers it is with a sad heart that I must write this short note to you all. I have appreciated getting to know each and every one of you.
I am dropping in to give you an update as I have been largely silent over the past month. My life has literally been turned upside down by surgery and complications with my heart and health since. Most days I am left speechless by the lack of energy and health issues that continue to plague me. I am beginning a new protocol for Lyme treatment and my doctor is urging me to try Ozone therapy as well. With all of this said, I have some decisions to make. I have to take care of myself.
It has been my great joy to write Lilac and Lyme blog this past year.
However my health continues to steadily decline and I am truly unable to continue writing at the constant pace that I have kept up since this past October. The past 9 months have been a whirlwind of activity. I am so grateful to all of my fellow Lyme warriors and new fibro friends that I have ‘met’ through my writing. You have all encouraged me beyond measure.
Writing of some of my deepest struggles has been a real lesson for me. It has aimed a light at the darkest corners of my life and made me realize that I need to take unlimited time for myself.
I have decided that during the next few months, I will work to close the blog here at Lilacandlyme.com. I am giving myself some extra time before I make this big step away from all that I have worked so hard to build here on my blog. Lilac and Lyme has grown into so much more than I ever dreamed it would or even could! While it brings me great joy to write, I do not want to blog to my own detriment. I will truly miss sharing my heart with you all. Closing a blog is a bit like tearing down a house. You don’t realize how much work and how many steps were taken until you go to disassemble it bit by little bit.
Please know this is not yet goodbye. While I will not be writing any more new posts, the past posts will remain up for several more months until I tie up loose ends here. I am simply updating you on what is going on in my life. I didn’t want to leave you, my dear readers hanging.
Where You Can Find Me
While I do plan to close the blog, I plan to keep my Twitter feed, Instagram and Facebook page open. I would hate to lose the treasured friendships that I have formed through blogging. You all mean so much to me. Instagram is where I will probably be the most active as it takes the least amount of energy and health to maintain. I look forward to this new chapter of healing in my life and I wish you all the best on your journey to health, healing and happiness.
I want to send the BIGGEST of thank yous to you my dear readers. A blog is just writing until there is someone to read it. You have made this experience special for me. I have learned so much.
Until we meet again, take care and be well,
