They Can't Keep Me Down!!!!!
I Am A Face Of Lyme Anybody close to me knows that. Many have been on my journey with me for many years. Every May which is Lyme Awareness month my 11th pic-line picture gets posted as my avatar for the month. Well I am on pic-line 12. Really felt that I was done on 11 but Lyme is an insidious disease. They threaded it to my heart yesterday. I will be giving myself 2 infusions of antibiotics a day. I will flush with saline, hook up my antibiotic, flush with saline again & then administer Herapin to keep my line from clotting. I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in February 2002 and that kept me literally bed-bound where the first 300 “Wall Dancers” were made in bed. Since I have sold over 1400 dolls & many of my recycled found object sculptures & the "KeRicTures". Why would I show this? Or talk about it? Because I get out of bed when I am sick. I do my art & keep busy & live my life. My 'story' is so many peoples stories. My hope is that they too will start doing the things they love or loved. Get out of bed if you can. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and I accept I am EXACTLY where I am supposed to be today. You can make lemonade with the cards you are dealt. You live your life like anyone else. I am blessed with a beautiful family & friends. I have met great people & I cannot change the Lyme Disease but I can choose how I want to live my life & I do
