Happiness comes in all shapes & sizes. Look at this little cuddle bug! Couldn't live without him.
Sometimes life surprises you. Right when you find yourself on the verge of giving up, everything suddenly comes together. I swear, in the blink of an eye. Just when you think it's over, the end is suddenly nowhere near. The sky opens up and the sun shines through. The grass looks greener! The clouds look fluffier! The air feels cleaner! Life isbrighter! I can't even begin to describe how I feel right now. That last appointment I blogged about was about as successful as skydiving without a parachute... THIS appointment however, was absolutely positively 100% entirely WONDERFUL!!!!! ☑Everything that needed to be addressed was addressed. ☑My hard work on the SCD diet was acknowledged and appreciated. ☑He KNEW about the diet. ☑All the health jargon I've learned over the past two years allowed me to have a real conversation with the doctor. ☑All the necessary supplements were identified and listed out for me to understand. ☑The doctor listened to everything I had to say and understood that I'm in this to win it. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to be healthy and lead a happy life. ☑He said there's no doubt in his mind that I will in fact be FEELING BETTER!!!!!!!!!
I say this with every ounce of love from the very bottom of my heart. I've been on this journey alone and for the first time in a long time, I don't feel alone anymore. To the Casey Health Institute, I would like to say THANK YOU! I will love you and your team for the rest of my life. You've given me the one thing I've been lacking: HOPE. xoxo, Allie ❤
Look at me! I can't even think clearly. I've got one thing on my mind. I guess you could say this is a very important day to me. It's the day I meet with a Lyme Disease Specialist down in Washington, D.C. I've never been so anxious to go to a doctor's appointment.This it is! This could be the last doctor I ever have to see. I've got my fingers crossed. Until then, waomlzmecdkbvnbqpruiyfy;l,,;MSIHR8IPTY'momnugy71azko0e. Yep, I'll be fairly discombobulated. ;)
Hi!!!! For those of you who don't already know, my name is Alexandra Brown, but you can call me Allie. I'm almost 21.5 years old & I dream of becoming a national/state park ranger. I have an especially irregular body. My digestion is out of whack, my joints are like those of an old lady, I tolerate few foods/beverages, I prefer to stay inside my comfort zone, & my body takes on water like a sponge. Yep, that's me. Does it put a slight damper on my social life? A little bit. Has it made it difficult to succeed in school? Yes. Does it affect my job? Absolutely. Is it all that I am? NO. Is the SCD something I truly believe in? Mhmm. Is it hard? YEAH! Am I human and make mistakes? You bet. Will I quit no matter how many times I fall? NEVER. There is always an opportunity to improve. If I have to fall a billion times first, fine. Let me crash. But you better believe that I'll pick myself right back up & fight hard not to fall. Why? Because I want it. And you've got it want it to get it. Wanting it is half the battle. The rest will come on its own. I'm in a rough place right now but I know I can rise above it. If this resonates with anyone else here on the page, I'm listening. I'm by your side, ready to pick you up when you fall. I won't give up on you. I know you can make it. And for goodness sake, I hope you're having a fabulous weekend. ;) Hugs. <3 -Allie-
I thought this gorgeous view might make you smile :)
