Wanna learn about Lyme Disease?
This is a book we got off amazon for like 3 bucks. Clay says it is perfect for explaining how he's felt for so long. Just incase anyone's interested. We will be loaning ours out too once we're done reading it.
I also got this book in the mail today:
Just from skimming certain parts I'm starting to wonder if we should probably cut out all dairy and carbs too. Which would leave us with meat, vegetables, eggs, and nuts. We'll see.
I'm so excited for the weekend. Saturday, I plan on sleeping in:) And maybe doing some projects. And vacuuming. I'm embarrassed to have anyone come to my house right now in fear that they'd see the massive amounts of dog hair lining the walls and floor. I wish I was a better housekeeper.
Alright- I'm now going to pick up that green lyme book and head to the bedroom. I think Clay and I are going to be major activists or whatever on educating people on Lyme Disease. I just feel so horrible for so many people out there right now that are in so much pain and suffering, half of them having their families and doctors tell them they're crazy. Clay had a doctor tell him there was NO WAY it could be Lyme Disease. He wouldn't even consider it. This is the ignorance and pride of the medical field. So sad. Had they taken Clay seriously back then, he could possibly even be cured by now. It's just going to take that much longer since he's had it that much longer. I just feel SO PASSIONATE about this. I need people to understand this horrific disease. And know it's out there, and that they can be treated and feel better! If only the medical field were more knowledgeable about this, and if only more people understood it...so many people could be treated earlier, and so many people could live a better life. If you know ANYone who has a mysterious illness/pain or anyone who's been diagnosed with fibermialgia even...please suggest Lyme Disease to them- and tell them to research it. They may be surprised. Anyway...........
Off to bed.
