A good cry

Thursday, April 14, 2011

One of the things my nephew does is wail for 30 seconds to 5 minutes. He isn’t interested in being comforted or distracted. He just lets it all out at the top of his lungs. Then he’s done. Afterward, he might take a deep nap or take a good look around or ask for some food. The wailing seems to clear his head as effectively as it clears my ears.

This reminds me of the many times when the pain caught up to me or the days and weeks and months of a life postponed started to wear me out. The only remedy was a good, hard cry, without trying to look on the bright side or noticing what I’ve learned or done. Such a cry would clear my head for a while, until the challenges of Lyme built up again. I have no doubt another will come sooner or later.


None. Check back tomorrow.


Simple stuff.

  • lemon water
  • skin brushing


No night sweat last night. What a relief. I had a back ache most of the day. My limbs and joints were hurting for parts of the day and again this evening. I had light sensitivity all day and some mild to moderate headaches. I’m still cold all the time, even in 70 deg F weather.

I’m at the end of the Lyme Herx. I reached the day of the funny smelling urine. Which means that when I get home tomorrow night, I’ll coil for the co-infections, and I should be able to coil for Lyme again on Saturday night.
