Bowing The Knee To What We Don’t Know

Bowing The Knee To What We Don’t Know

Today is Monday, and although I am blessed not to work Mondays they usually aren’t “fun”.
A typical day off for me is waking up in the morning feeling “hungover”, groggy, swollen and puffy, heavy and achy usually with a headache. Do I drink?

Time will tell if I get to a point of complete cure but for now I am grateful beyond words to have gotten my life back after a long, tough journey of dealing with Lyme Disease and Babesia.  After 3…

Die Off Check In

So again I will give the disclaimer that this round of die off isn’t too bad.

But I have been really fatigued (more than my normal everyday fatigue).

Been feeling very emotional.

“Hungover” feeling
