Friday night-life of a Lyme warrior

So tonight I decided to give you all a glimpse of what a typical Friday night is like for a 24 year old battling Lyme disease. Why? Because a good laugh is always healthy for you, and I don’t mind it being at my expense. 🙂

First, take pills and eat dinner (take out of course, because you are wayyy too tired to cook), but make sure it is free of all gluten, sugar, soy, dairy, GMOs, and anything else you are required to avoid. And don’t forget to chug some of this stuff for the 3rd time today…

Second, brew both coffee and tea. The tea is to feed your kombucha (yes, FEED. Think of the ant farm you had as a kid, only it’s not ants…it’s bacteria).

Next, just go ahead and make that run to Walmart. It’s totally ok that it’s 7:30pm on a Friday night and you’re in your pajamas (it IS Walmart after all).

Just remember while you’re there to buy this…

Then once you get home, grab that coffee you made (it’s cool by now) and head for the bathroom. Yep, you guessed it, it’s not going in the normal way! (For your sakes, no pictures were taken of this portion of the night).

Then, time for more pills!! And if you’re lucky maybe even an injection or two!

Slather yourself from head to toe with these bad boys…

And head for bed!! But maybe check Facebook first…if you’re ok with seeing pictures like this from most of your friends.

    • Haha! I figured you would relate!You are correct about vitamin D, tumeric, and fish oil packets (not pictured with the pills) and I don’t think my probiotic was in the picture either. The pile also includes serrapeptase (looks like a probiotic), milk thistle, alpha lipoic acid, beta blocker, mood stabilizer, and I think that’s all lol.

  3. It’s the apple cider vinegar (forget the vinegar) with the “mother” of a Friday night post that brings the best out in you Addie Marie.
    Visit me in Spain. Now that would get your friends talking & jealous. If not, wind them up by telling them that you’re going to do it. That’ll make your day 😀 heehee ❤
