"You're not yourself lately..."
"You seem really depressed."
That's the feedback I've been getting from friends and family lately. Not sure if it's the Ivermectin, or the Lyme, or the mourning over one-year of illness. One thing for certain, I'm down.
(Doo, doo, doo down doo be do down, down Come on come on Down doo be do down).
I talked to my doctor about it. Told him I'm really in the pooper. His advice?
Stop helping others. Stop giving so much. Stop giving energy to Lyme/negative people/events. Focus on YOU....something he illustrated on the back of his prescription pad (2's God (spirituality), 3's family, 4's friends, 5's--not even showing--lyme and co).
"See this?" he barked. "You need to put YOU back in the center of YOU."
"If you don't, you're going to end up like all of the Lyme doctors I know...wore out with nothing left to give."
Spoken like a man with experience (did I mention he's getting ready to take a 10 day vacation??).
So, there it is...FREE medical advice...offered by the one of Florida's finest.
PS For the record, I think the medication is a HUGE part of it. This is beyond sadness...I don't even feel like I am living in my body anymore...like my soul's gone. Hopefully, in 7 days, this will all be a memory. Then it's bye-bye Ivermectin. Hello GU treatment. For your sanity, you may want to check back then. No need to put more rocks in your wheel barrel (unless you're into that kind of thing). ;)
Thanks for listening. XOXO
