an unexpected journey

It’s been a strange couple of weeks, and quite frankly a strange few years… it’s an uncomfortable form of vulnerability to feel like your body and mind are not working the way they should be (big respect to those living with chronic illness), and not even being able to pinpoint when it all began… at times not being sure if I was losing my mind or why I was having physical symptoms that did not make any sense. These little beings who have taken up residence inside my body are masterful at deception and hiding… they are quite complex, and it’s really kind of incredible how they thrive and proliferate.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are many lessons that can come from illness, and I am slowly starting to unpack the layers of this… Lyme is interesting in the way it has become an epidemic yet it is still a complete shit show for most people to be listened to, believed and get a proper diagnosis (I have been very lucky in this aspect). The way in which the tick populations and tick-borne diseases rise as our climate changes, forests continue to be removed, and the predator-prey relationships are disrupted.  Personal lessons about walking my talk and practicing self-care, for real… getting back to thriving mode vs. surviving mode.  Simple things like rest, movement, nature, nourishment of body/mind/spirit, and calling in my team of helpers. So much to explore. Many more lessons on the micro and macro levels to come.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Onwards and upward…
