It’s never an encouraging sign when a doctor does this: #vitalprotection #lymedisease #lymesucks #lyme #lymewarrior #borrelia #ticks
I choose to make sadness my softness.
.
Uncertainty my openess.
.
My weak days my tend-to-me days.
.
My brokenness my beautifulness.
.
And my scars my strength.
.
And, oh, how strong I have become.
.
Strong enough to let go,
.
Because not everything you lose is a loss.
.
Patient enough to wait for what I deserve,
.
Cause not everything that looks good, is.
.
Today was an incredibly difficult day filled with disappointment and an #infection that took a rapid turn for the worse. #Lymies have such compromised #immune systems, and we just cannot battle additional exposure beyond what we are already fighting.
.
Thank goodness for people who believe us in this fight. Believe us, please! We know our own bodies, the battle we are up against every day, and the precautions we need to take to ensure our continued #health.
.
Thanking God today for a doctor's office that had the foresight to refuse to treat me and send me to the #emergencyroom.
.
Thanking God for nurses and medical doctors who believed my #Lyme diagnosis and rushed to treat me before this turned into #sepsis. #LymeDisease patients are often not lucky enough to be taken seriously. And in fact, this was a first for me, too.

Here's to healthier days and wiser choices ahead.

My job may look weird to some and my office looks like this... but when is the last time you were able to watch the sunset in another place from your work?
When people lessen “working” from home... I started coaching calls at 11am. Due to some emergency issues with a few clients I had back to back calls until 9. BUT I literally watched the sunset in Chicago with one of my clients. 
Fighting fatigue and pain, during this time, my children were left to entertain themselves, Sinjin made 3 meals between building sites for clients and taking new client referral calls, Jade brought me food, I saw Lulu for about 5 mins, I worked on enrolling her in school in between it all, took a friend meltdown call, managed to walk down to get the mail, and received another 5 star review for our work and testimonial for our work. 
All on a day when I was scheduled for one call...I ended up on 5. 
But this is what I get for starting each day with “Lord help me be of the most value of service to whom you choose in the way you choose it.” Today the list was long; my body tired but my heart full.

I mean... sunsets in freaking Chicago???!! Thanking stars, moons, comets, tacos, saints I can’t pronounce and the Easter bunny for my job and hoping I helped someone amidst it all 🙏🏻❤️

The first picture is me in February 2018. I was suffering from trigeminal autonomic cephalalgia (cluster headaches) 
I was absolutely miserable. The pain is honestly indescribable. Cluster headaches are known as the WORST pain known to medical science. Unlike a migraine or normal headache, with these headaches there was nothing I could do for relief. 
Swipe to the left- and this is me, present day, 6 months later. Happy and healthy. 
My goal is to create a community of people who know what it feels like to go through these times and to show everyone that there is hope. 
Blog soon to come with tips, stories, and lifestyle advice. .

After 2.5 hours of sleep, a flight to Denver getting me in at 7:30 AM, and a long day with little coffee...I’m surprised how well my run went this evening. 
Went 7.7 miles around Golden and enjoyed the change of scenery.

💚I am #chronicallyillchronicallyfabulous and have Chronic Lyme Disease. I will be using my stories once a week to discuss varying topics and issues about chronic illness and shed some light on the daily life of those who are chronically ill. I will try to stick with Wednesday as the discussion day, but that all depends on my health and energy every Wednesday. Go ahead and take a look at my stories for some great questions I’ve received so far and some answers. I will go more in depth with each topic throughout the weeks. If you find this annoying or not important, you can go ahead and unfuckingfollow me. I have spent too many years hiding my illness and keeping quiet. My stitching came about because of my illness, to appreciate my stitching you need to respect my story.💚 #spoonie #lyme #lymedisease #lymewarrior #spoonielife #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicallyill #chronicallyfabulous #crossstitch #invisibleillness #chroniclymedisease #ableist #ableism #illness

Dinner made easy.  Steamable cauliflower rice medley, pork ribs from the other night, all cooked up in a little ghee.  I actually think this was better tonight then when they were made the other night.  Easy quick meals that are super healthy and fuel your body!

IT IS OK to have bad days. The important thing is to know there will be highs and lows on your journey. .
.
What lesson can you learn during the low times? 🧐.
.
How can you celebrate the high times?🎉.
.
Beating yourself up doesn’t create change or anything good. It only takes you down lower. Give yourself grace and love ❤️ that’s what heals. .
.
You might be going through a health scare, a quarter life crisis, a relationship issue, doubting your self worth, or whatever else it is, know that that THING is shaping your for a greater purpose. .
.
May you have the courage to ride the tide in this season, find the learning lesson, and smile at the end of the day. I promise you, you’ll come out stronger on the other side 💪🏼🙃 #keepfighting #staystrong .

Currently... struggling to power through an afternoon with my toddler after using up a hundred spoons this weekend and sleeping terribly last night. I'm doing what I can and letting go of perfectionism/taking a lot of CBD for another IBD flare partially due to re-introducing solids too quickly. He's currently having a nice time eating a Lara bar and peanut butter covered carrots for snack, watching multiple Goldie & Bear episodes on Netflix and cuddling with mama as much as he wants. #spooniemom #justhanginthere #chronicillness #odaat #mctd #lymedisease #lymediseaseawareness #lymewarrior #ibd #lymedontkillmyvibe #dontquit #bethelightstaylit #lymemom #spooniemom #spooniestrong #thisistemporary #spiritualbeinghavingahumanexperience

I stick little notes around my home as reminders and affirmations to help me along my Lyme and chronic illness healing journey. 🖤 Some are obvious and I see them daily, while others I hide in random spots so that when I least expect it I find one. 🖤 Today I found one that resonates deeply as I’ve been working extra hard lately on rewiring my brain through mindfulness practice and bodywork. 🖤 The power of the mind is so strong, we just have to be reminded sometimes.

A splurge on myself bc I deserve some new @nike gear 🤷🏽‍♀️😏 Such a busy morning taking care of my bf before and after his surgery. Usually he takes care of me so it was nice to be able to care of you him for a change 😊 
My shopping trip was cut short by a 101 fever 🤒 so I guess my body was tellin me to chill out.
Brain says Go Go Go but body says stop sleep repeat.
So salt bath and nap is what I did. .

I originally bought Lava Love CBD oil to help with my anxiety and depression. 
Within days I started to realize how calm I felt, how I was experiencing joy during my day in things that hadn't brought me joy for years. 
Things that seemed impossible before - like folding laundry or cleaning my bathroom - increasingly felt simpler and more rewarding to get done. 
I know these may seem like small things but anyone who suffers from anxiety or depression will understand the difficulties these "simple" tasks can bring when you aren't well. 
Lava Love CBD oil has made these things possible for me again. -Ruthie Kirkpatrick in Rochester, WA🌺🌷 coupon code THREEOZ to save $10 on 3 oz option and code LAVALOVER on all the rest when you check out atwww.lavaloveusa.com.  #antianxiety  #naturalpainrelief  #cbd  #cbdoil  #entourageeffect  #fullspectrumhempoil  #vegan  #rawfood  #fruitarian  #801010germancommunity #lavender #charcoalmask #herbalism #organic #lymediseaseawareness #lymewarrior #beachbody

I was having a really awful day one day last year, questioning so much about life, myself, my health, if I was ever going to heal from #lyme, if I was ever going to be “normal” again and do things like other people do. 
___
I always ask God to give me some hope, some “signs”. One thing my grandmother absolutely loved were butterflies. She used to have butterfly magnets all over her refrigerator. I remember I took a walk that day and something made me turn around, and then I saw this beautiful butterfly. I appreciated her dropping by to say hi. 
____
When looking up butterfly spiritual meanings, I read: “Butterflies are deep and powerful representations of life. Many cultures associate the butterfly with our souls. The Christian religion sees the butterfly as a symbol of resurrection. Around the world, people view the butterfly as representing endurance, change, hope, and life.”
___
Sometimes it’s just the little things that can bring us an ounce of #hope.

Who would have known -  #cardamom 😳- but I love Indian food 😪. The reaction felt HOT (like I was burning from the inside out) it started at my finger tips & toes - it  Crept up all over my body. Cardamom is only on the “Yellow list”... imagine what everything else is doing??? Inflammation *** folks 
This test is CRUCIAL for EVERYONE! Especially children to live a healthy life. Healing comes from the inside out.
 I did this super comprehensive BLOOD allergy test by Leap.
Now to stay away from what compromises our immune systems individually.

"The main thing that gives me hope is how far I’ve come so far. Eight years ago I thought I was going to die. And even if I did somehow survive, I didn’t think I would have any quality of life, but I do. I have a great quality of life now even though I don’t feel great every day and don’t live a normal life. I can’t hold a job yet, but I have made amazing progress. I have days where I am in zero pain, my mind is sharp, and I can do a full day of activities. I’m proving myself wrong every day." - Haley, Grad student

Just finished meeting with a new psychologist to work through my difficulties with loss, grief & pain. I think it's so important to address the psychological effects of chronic illness, especially an invisible one that is denied by our medical system. Here's to healing both body and mind 💪🏼

Say how you feel, leave the job you hate, find your passion, love with every once of your bones, stand up for things that matter, don't settle, don't apologize for who you are...be brave.

Making yourself a priority is not selfish, it's necessary. Your body is incredible, make sure you are giving it the nourishment it needs to function at its best.

I’m Jenny Buttaccio (@jenny_buttaccio), and I have chronic Lyme disease. I’ve partnered with Healthgrades on new content about Lyme disease, and this week I’m taking over the Healthgrades Instagram feed to share my experience living with Lyme. I was diagnosed with the illness in 2012, but I never saw a tick bite or developed the classic bullseye rash, so it’s hard to say exactly when I was infected. Today, I continue to battle Lyme disease, but I probably don’t look very sick, especially from a photograph where I’m smiling. A smile can hide so many challenges I face, like physical pain, crushing fatigue, and brain fog. Click the link in the bio to read more of my new Lyme disease content on Healthgrades.

This summer has been really hard on my body. Lyme treatment has been making me so worn out lately that I find it hard to do things I’d have found easy a couple of months ago... driving, going to the mall, running errands, hanging out with friends. It’s all been so exhausting.

Even though I’m not physically feeling my best right now, I know that I have to go through this in order to get better. I’ll get there soon enough 🙏🏻

Something tasty is going on in the kitchen. Too bad it’s not for Luke. Lemont made more of my favorite cookies! They do have a little sugar in them but other than that they fit my healthy eating guidelines well. Having something sweet, other than fruit, is always welcome.

There have been many changes in my life over the past year. All of which have led me to this perfectly imperfect place of obedience despite my fears. .
.
.
Writing full time. .
.
.
For years I was to afraid to fully embrace the idea this is who I was created to be. Thoughts of "What if no one reads it?" "I don't have the right education to be an author or a blogger." "She has way more followers..." led me to always pause and not dive in. .
.
.
During this season of healing I discovered a love for myself, an acceptance coming from a place of supernatural love. A place my fears fall off knowing what God has in store for me as I step out in faith is far greater than anything I could do on my own. .
.
.
I am jumping in, set apart, honest, compassionate, and full of excitement about sharing truth with you. .

After seven very long years of thinking I had  ME/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) it turns out I have Lyme and Babesia. Nasty tick borne infections, that if left untreated, become a real pain to treat when chronic. The crazy thing about this that people need to know is that the Lyme tests ordinary docs give you don't work unless you're producing antibodies! However, many Lyme infected people don't because the biology of Lyme makes it hard for the immune system to detect. The *only* lab in the US right now that's sophisticated enough to detect Lyme and co-infections with real accuracy is IGeneX in California. When I first got sick this test didn't exist. Just thought I'd share if anyone still sick with normal labs has never tried IGeneX, it's a good idea. .

When my son was born 11 years ago, I was still in the transition between conventional and holistic living.  It’s taken a long time to get where we are today.  In talking to others, I realize it’s often hard to let go of the ideas that we’ve had our whole lives to accept that they might be wrong.  But if we are open to learning and growing and challenging our belief systems, beautiful things can happen.  I’m so thankful for where this journey has brought us and to the people we’ve met along the way.  Oils, homeopathy, good nutrition, functional movement, chiropractic care, and removing toxic products and exposures from our home has radically improved our quality of life.  #lymedisease #holistichealth

Great perspective about illness on @themightysite last week. I’ve definitely thought of my illness as a gift in the past, but I love how she talks about it as a teacher instead. That language is important. I got lost in the gratitude for my recovery and the lessons I’ve learned that I didn’t fully process my grief and anger for what I had endured. In the end, I’m still grateful. I think a positive attitude goes far in helping your body know it’s safe and for providing the best opportunity for recovery, but I also think not recognizing and processing all emotions is dangerous. I’ve put a lot of work into processing my anger and frustration for the suffering I endured and that was a really important part of my process in healing as well. This shit has been one hell of a ride...#lymedisease #lymewarrior

I know this isn’t going to sound like a big deal to most but omg I just walked to the end of my block to get my mail today! This is the first time I’ve walked so far by myself in as long as I can remember and I was talking to myself the whole time! Haha “ you can do it! It’s just down the road. Look! It’s right there! Keep going!” Well I made it and I’m completely knocked out but I did it!!! I worry a lot about muscle atrophy... I try to do little exercises, especially with my legs from time to time but it can be a bit dangerous if I push too hard ( I could be laid up for weeks ) it’s so important to understand my body and to accept that it doesn’t work like it used to, maybe some day but not for a while. Lyme therapy and treatment is extremely hard on the body and mind. I’m trying my best to stay positive and to be patient with myself. I’ll take any win I can get! FYI: I had to get the mail before my husband got home because his anniversary gift is in it!!! No surprises ruined today!  #mylymelife #lymewarrior #lymedisease #herxing #lymediseaseawareness #lymedontkillmyvibe #lyme #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #sweetsuccess

Tag someone who needs to understand their insurance before they spend their life savings on treatment
-
The facts outside of my control and everyone's else are that medicare, medicaid, and HMO insurance policies will only provide reimbursement for providers that are in-network.
-
In-network refers to those providers have negotiated contracted rates with the major insurance companies, such that the insurance company has full control over how much that provider is reimbursed. -
Out-of-network refers to providers who do not have negotiated rates or contracts with the major insurance carriers, and operate in a more independent (cash only) fashion. -
Alternative medicine providers commonly operate as cash only providers, which typically include LLMD's, Lyme Clinics, international providers in Mexico & Germany, and any provider without a contract with the major insurance carriers.
-
It is the personal choice of that particular medical provider whether or not they are in-network with the major insurance carriers.
-
However, due to low reimbursements and fear of action towards them, most LLMD's and Lyme Clinics choose to be out of network and rely solely on cash payments to run the business side of their practice.
-
Now, bringing this back to what insurance you need to have in order get reimbursed, your policy will need to have out of network coverage if you plan to or have received treatment at a cash only medical provider, such as a LLMD, Lyme Clinic, or other provider that requires cash payment for treatment up front.
-
A PPO (Preferred Provider Organizations) is an insurance policy that allows you to visit whatever in-network physician or healthcare provider you wish without first requiring a referral from a primary care physician.
-
So bringing this full circle, in order for any treatment at a cash only provider to be covered, you need a PPO, whether it is for a local family doctor who it is out of network or a Lyme Doctor that is out of network.

Mika at Rail Trail 
August 13, 2018
Northampton Massachusetts
At Christmas Mika could not walk at all. By January she could stand with help and I would follow her around holding her back end up so that she could go outside for 30 seconds. I've been building up her strength every day.  This is our favorite spot on our errand ride. Blessed every day.

I’ve now been on antibiotics and an anti-parasitic for 3 1/2 months now. It has brought me back to health about 60%. I rapidly decided to go back to work due to the tragic financial ruin that had befallen on my family due to losing our home And everything we ever owned from Mold, extensive and expensive doctor appointments, A scathing custody battle with my children’s father and the general impact of becoming a one income household. Sometimes in life we have to make hard decisions and this was one of them for us in which I am having to sacrifice myself for the well-being of my children and my husband and us as a whole. My new job is exhausting, I work 9 AM to 8 PM five days a week and it’s a hour commute but I like it, so that is a major plus, keeping my mindset positive has been a huge impact. 
Not only has that happened but I wanted to tell you all that I am so appreciative of all the support and contributions you made to help me this past year which was a giant factor in us winning the court case against my children’s father! He still does not believe that the children have Lyme disease even with the lab tests we got and of course he certainly doesn’t think that Mold can make you sick but I cannot control what other people believe. 
It’s still been very stressful because I am still dealing with the aftermath of his campaign to convince everyone that I have Munchhausen syndrome by proxy and that I am unstable and doing drugs so it’s been really hard to get back into the community where I know everyone secretly whispers behind my back. I can ignore all of that 99% of the time but when these grown adults corner my children and try to convince them that I am poisoning their food I honestly say that my patience runs thin. It hurts very deeply that many people that I once cared about actually believe this bullshit and it really makes me question humanity as a whole, if I spent years getting to know people and connecting, & all it takes is someone to tell them a grandiose lie and they believe it without even shooting me a text or giving me a call, I just really don’t know what to even say anymore, So I just cut everybody off permanently. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Why is it that you’ve tried so many diets and cleanses and protocols and programs and none of them have stuck? .
How discouraging does it feel to think “this is the time. I’m really going to make a change” and then a few days or a week or two into it you find yourself fading. It becomes harder not to binge on the foods you’re restricting… harder to motivate yourself to do what you need to.
.
Well a critical part, my lovely friends, is that you HAVE NOT FIGURED OUT YOUR “WHY”.
.
So what on earth does that mean? Well, it means that whatever program or course etc. that you’re doing, hasn’t allowed you the time or given you the means to really understand why it is you want to make the change you’re committing to.
.
Yes, maybe you are thinking “Marissa, I know my why, I joined a weight loss program so i obviously want to lose weight. DUH” but I want you to dig deeper than that!!! .
-What will losing that weight do for you? -How will losing that weight make you feel? -What will you be missing out on if you do not lose the weight? .
These are the types of questions you have to think about in order to really uncover your true motivation to achieve the results and the life you dream of.
.
Need help? Shoot me a message and we can get you on the path to FINALLY making a change that sticks!

Yoga. We’ve been going steady for about 15 years. My mom took me to my first bikram yoga class when I was 10 😂 (thanks @anita_riggs) I became certified in Ashtanga when I was 16. Fast forward to today and I am so grateful for this foundation. It has allowed me a safe place to return to my breath, body and peace of mind through the ups and downs of life. ✨
As of lately, yoga looks a lot like this for me. Healing from a chronic illness takes a lot of trust. Trusting in the unknown or what the next day will bring. It doesn’t always allow me to move my body the way that my mind would want to. But I find comfort in simply sitting on my mat (or in nature) and connecting to my truest self in order to carry on and show up fearlessly to life day after day. ✨
Thank you yoga. For always being there no matter the circumstances and allowing me to see the beauty this life has to offer. 🧘🏻‍♀️ #internationalyogaday
