These are the two qualities that I need to master in order for me to have the hope to press on. I have to remember that slow and steady wins the race. It would also help me know for certain that I will reach the finish line. I am the type of person that does not like to wait for things. I have worked full time in spas and salons since the age of sixteen. I lived on my own right after High School, and paid the rent. I would set a goal and know for sure I would reach that goal without waiting too long. This is my 6th trip around with Lyme disease, so in the past I knew what needed to happen in order to get me to a remission. This time was no different. I read the stats also, but am realizing there is no certainty when it comes to this illness. I am getting so weary because I am feeling that these statistics are just a comfort food for an uncertain tomorrow. I am so greatful for my faith in God, because I know he is changing this around to teach me a lesson that I have zero control over this. and I have to put it in his hands and trust him in order to get well. Even though my pain is almost unbearable, when it is all over and I am well, I can come to a deeper understanding of other people who are suffering Chronic Lyme disease. With this deep understanding I can help them. This all means I have to perfect the practice, PATIENCE & PERSEVERANCE!!!
