12. Nothing clean to wear
13. I can safely drive there but not home
14. I can no longer find your house... or the store... or anything
15. that is the night I already decided i would vacuum my house this year. Bummer.
16. When you ask me to make a salad for 40 and i do it, you say it is too heavy to pass and nobody likes salad
17. Remember you said I ruined the last wedding because I had to leave at 11:30 pm
18. Remember you told me I am no fun because I can't drink while on my meds... and, I learned you are not fun when you drink
19. I might fly into a Lyme rage and bite you.... causing YOU to get Lyme
20. Actually, I cannot come because all this time I didn't have Lyme disease... I have had cancer... I just lied so I could see what you are all REALLY like.

2012 New Year's Resolutions for Lymies

Add yours to the comments and I'll add it :)

2012 New Year's Resolutions for Lymies:

1. Decline EVEN more invitations than in 2011
2. Sleep EVEN MORE than I have ever slept so I can get in the Book of world Records
3. Meet a few more doctors and hear them say it is all in my head... the new vocabulary might help me with my word problems
4. Try not to laugh when someone declares it was just a bug bite
5. Get that last Tick Borne disease I missed... I don't wanna fail at this
6. Forget even more crap I never really needed to know in order to survive
7. Get my telephone number tattooed on my wrist to simplify my life
8. Bore everyone with the details of my preferred disease... I really wish I had gotten Turrett's just so I could violently swear and bark with a valid excuse
9. Enlarge my dark circles underneath my eyes
10. Watch an entire show without falling asleep
11. Use my very last ounce of energy to tell off a certain someone
12. Find better excuses for declining events... like I will be busy puking my guts out or I have too many meds to take or i can't stay awake through their monotony... 
13. Find a polite way to say, "I woudn't waste my last drop of energy on you."
14. Find a way not to puke over Doxycyclene
15. Relearn 5 names and have them come out when I say them
16. Find a new hairdo besides a ponytail that should've been washed days ago
17. Tell people they haven't seen me in a while because I was in Hawaii
18. Manage to stomach the pharmacist's look of disgust as he hands me my medications like I am a drug addict. As if I take Ketek for the high...
19. Remember that is it not all about me like that one snotty relative keeps saying
20. Take my medicine containers out to the recycling bin

The Lyme Life

I am asking, no begging, no pleading with my friends to please read my friend Kenny's blog. He has such great ways of putting things and explaining our plight with Lyme. If you ever go blank, like I do, on how to explain to someone why we can't get treatment, or why lyme is not recognized or taken seriously. Please just direct these people here:
