Her Tapestry Unwinding and Remaining Grateful During Setbacks

"Her Tapestry Unwinding" and is the latest in my "Healing Visions" series of digital paintings.I have been having a pretty major setback for the last week, pain has increased, fatigue is so intense that even painting digitally is to taxing at times yet I also have so much to be grateful for. I feel extremely grateful that I have found a way to keep creating despite being to ill to paint on silk right now. Creating the Healing Visions paintings has been a Godsend for me.

 A friend sent me this video the other day and this young man's emotional speech rang so true with me I wanted to share it. It's not the pain, fatigue or even the loss of independence & friendships that breaks us. It's the slow devastation of our minds, the erosion of our personalities & our cognitive abilities. Neuro Lyme attacks every system in our bodies & that is devistating, but the war it wages on our brains slowly steals our sense of self, & that's unbearable. Lyme destroys the Mind Video

There is also another video that is so full of interesting and hopeful info I wanted to share that one as well. 10 Alzheimers brains from the Yale brain bank were tested for Lyme, 7 of the 10 brains had Lyme DNA. People with MS, Parkinsons, Lou Gerigs and Alzheimers are recovering when treated for Lyme
