Just keep swimming

I have that line from Finding Nemo in my head, “just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming”(see the clip HERE if you’d like). I just keep putting one foot in front of the other, I keep going and going and keep hoping I’ll have the energy to “keep swimming.” Thank goodness a friend of mine today was inspired to invite my daughter over to play, it saved me.

Tomorrow I have a follow up appointment with my new fibro doctor to discuss my tests results. I am on pins and needles waiting to hear what she has to say. She had me tested for a battery of tests, and I was sure nothing would come up (because my blood work is always perfect). Much to my surprise, when I checked my lab results (the doctor leaves a message on a machine system) she said I tested positive for Lyme disease, and my levels indicated chronic fatigue and chronic mono. WHAT? I was shocked. So I’m dying to hear what she has to say about that! Talk about messing with my mind, apparently it is possible I could have Lyme disease, but the tests are so unreliable who knows. And if I do have Lyme disease, it is possible the fibro and mono are results of the Lyme, which means, in theory of course, they could eventually go away. But, I feel these tests results have led me down a dangerous road that leads to hope. I’m afraid to hope, because my hopes have been dashed so many times. I could really use some positive answers right now though, because I have been feeling worse than ever lately. Tomorrow will be an interesting day.

  1. My husband and I adopted Dori's motto while I was going through cancer treatment. =) We've used it ever since, when tough times came along. Well, tough times are here again and we don't know what all the changes will be or mean… so we'll just keep swimming. =)
