If you don't have a chronic illness...it is hard to understand. I dealt with the same thing with my Mom's mental illness. Some things in life are hard to read. If you have never experienced these things, you have nothing to compare them to. I am diabetic. I have a small picture of what you mean. I have had physical sx that are uncomfortable. I get the energy thing. (I also have thyroid issues.) But, I can't totally understand everything you go through. However, I get needing to process. And that is why I find your blog easy to read. I want to hear what is going on with you. The good, the bad, and the truly ugly. I want to know what your reality is. When you share...I feel honored that I have the chance to hear it. EVEN on the bad days. But I think that I am used to seeing the pain in life. I grew up with it. My Mom trained me. That doesn't mean I don't value hope. I just realize that some days, hope is harder to find. Love you, Kathy.

I have talked to many people who have doubters out there lately. You are certainly not alone. It is painful. And means that you have to rely on those friends who DO believe and want to understand.
Dear Kathy: I have been learning this lesson a lot recently. Friends really do want to help. Love you. Remember to call on us.
It has taken me a lifetime to get that. And sometimes I still don't. Kathy: You are truly wise.
Sleeplessness on top of everything else? Oh, brother.......I really hope you get some sleep soon.

Kathy: Being real is so much more important than being positive. Being sick isn't fun. It sucks. It is OK to say that.....

I will continue on my quest to learn all about Judy...and I will continue to be grateful for great friends...
Toggle Commented Nov 27, 2011 on Day 360: Good Question at Alter Everything
I love reading a good mystery. I love my daughter...and the fact that she is my best friend. I love the support of all my good friends. I love the fact that I am creating a fun and interesting business. I love having time to myself. I love sitting in bed and watching TV. I love laughing. I love music...of all kinds. I love my roomie's dog...Cody is a hoot! I love having a great roommate. I love that life is always filled with hope and possibility when I look for it. I love the view outside the backdoor of my new home. I love Nashville. I love Kathy and how she shares her struggles and joys with me.
Sometimes you just have to sit out the block.....
I am dealing with this right now. And I am learning and growing. Amazingly. Thanks, Kathy.

How powerful. Love you for posting that.
I can't stand seeing ONE doctor. You have my absolute sympathy.
Wonderful.
Great article...wishing you and Buddy peace.

This seems obvious to me, Kathy. If someone hasn't been in your shoes, they just don't get it. I realize every time I read your blog that I am here to LEARN. As your friend, I desire to learn...and to understand. If I ever guilt you....feel free to kick me in the butt...because I AM NOT YOU AND I CAN'T GET WHAT IS GOING ON IN YOUR BODY. Unless you tell me. And I am willing to listen. Which I am. I love you. Write what you need to. I will continue listening. And learning.
I am looking at my view. And I see you, Kathy. You are one of the friends that make life worthwhile. Thanks for being part of my life. Love you.
Kathy: Honesty is difficult. But you never know who you touch when you are sharing your pain. I thought about the days that Saul is just tired. Not wanting to reassure me. Just wanting to sleep. Thanks for giving me a clue. Love you. I am glad that you and Angel talked.

I missed this one, Kathy. Saul deals with similar health issues. I am definitely praying for Wendy. And family.

Being in a committed relationship with a man who has serious health problems, I have to tell you how you and Kathy inspire me. Thank you.

I would tell my daughter how much she has added to my life and how very much I love her. I would tell Saul that he has been my soulmate and I couldn't imagine living without having had his love. And I would die feeling lucky because I have great friends and wonderful family. Sounds like you and Kathy have the same. You are a great guy, Angel.

Kathy: You are warm, loving, and genuine. You deserve warm and genuine and loving in return. So does everyone else posting on any forum designed to support people who have Lyme disease. You have so much of your life taken away by the disease, you need to have people in your life who are loving and supportive. Period. I am (as always) very proud of you. Love you!

Seriously, Kathy...let me know if you need me to help the next time you go to the doc. I am available. Love you.
What a way to wake up! You are doing the best possible taking care of yourself. I hope it gets better.
