Chloe and I have an appointment this afternoon to get retested for lyme. I’m ridiculously nervous but also really excited. You know what they say, the proof is in the pudding! I have gotten one test since returning from Germany that has given me something to be excited about- the D Dimer test. I have… Continue reading Today is a big day!
Please, Please, Please do not attempt hyperthermia on your own, or under the care of an unlicensed professional. I have read about many lyme sufferers attempting to raise their body temperature through saunas, etc. Infrared saunas are great in assisting with the detox process but they are in no way safe or effective means for… Continue reading An important announcement

and it wasn’t the Super Bowl! While my team lost, I had my own personal victory this weekend! Saturday morning I was on Pinterest looking for recipes to make for the big game.
