I wanted to have a well-thought-out, planned in extreme detail post for today, the first day of Lyme Disease Awareness Month 2017, but that didn't end up being a reality, so I did the next best thing I could do...I created a video update for my YouTube channel and am sharing that below.
I hope to be able to share more (video and typed posts) this month than I've been able to lately, but y'all know as well as I do, that's always dependent on whether or not I can function well enough at any given moment on any given day, so one day at a time is the mantra for life in this house! (I highly recommend it...it's simple, but effective in keeping you present and in the moment).
I'd wish you a "Happy Lyme Disease Awareness Month," BUT I don't particularly get too happy thinking about the fact that we NEED This awareness because of these illnesses that are life-stealing, but I will say this: TIME TO GE YOUR AWARENESS ON! In whatever way(s) you are capable. And if you're not, THAT IS A.O.K. Being a warrior fighting the battle with Lyme and friends doesn't make activism an absolute mandatory things if your body, soul, mind, and spirit aren't up to the task...after all, a lot of us are in the battle and just trying to heal and live one day at a time, so here's your permission slip to not feel like you HAVE to post a lot (or at all) during any awareness time period.
Without further ado, here's my first video for Lyme Disease Awareness Month 2017.
Stay safe and protect yourselves, your families, and your pets in any and every way you can when outdoors, especially during the peak months of tick season, which is a longer season than ever before, this year, due to our extremely mild winter.
