Artist's Description

Hoping for a cure…sooner than later…for CHRONIC lyme disease. I have the Canadian and American blood work done that ‘officially’ proves this…yet I am left in limbo, isolated, abandoned, in the dark, on my own. There is no one in my country, in the hospital emergencies, or anywhere in my country that can cure me, make me better.

I sat down the other day and looked at all the probiotics, vitamins, herbals, supplements, antibiotics I take (most are purchased in the USA all out of pocket) and realized that it’s just TOO expensive to keep me alive.
I don’t have any ‘help’ from the government or family.

It is as if I am the only one in this shroud, jumping and screaming for someone to notice, to help, yet no one can see me or hear me.

I have 4 herniated discs in my neck, one is flattening my spinal cord, this is inoperable. I have seen 3 neurosurgeons and no one will touch me. I have accepted this, I can live like this, it won’t kill me.

I have borderline personality disorder, again, I have been this way my whole life, I can accept this and live with it.

I have MISOPHONIA, and have suffered with this since childhood, finally it has a name…I can live with this and accept this…it will not kill me, people don’t die from this.

I have chronic insomnia, social anxiety, generalized anxiety and severe panic attacks, yes at times it feels like i’m dying, especially when i can’t feel my hands and my heart is beating so fast like it will explode…but insomnia and anxiety don’t kill you. I can accept and live with this.

What I CANNOT accept or live with is CHRONIC lyme disease…living in the capital of Canada and knowing truly there is nothing and no one that can ‘cure’ me, and the only hope I do have is clinging to the kindness of strangers in hopes of donations for my lyme disease fundraiser to take me to NY to see my lyme dr again. CHRONIC LYME DISEASE DOES KILL YOU… this I cannot accept.

I used to be thin, active, fun. I used to have friends, be able to dance, hike, work, now I don’t.
I still pay it forward, I still do random acts of kindness, I still take the higher ground. I smile when you see me, I ‘pretend’ that everything is ok so that you will see me as a WARRIOR a FIGHTER a BRINGER OF HOPE…
but the truth of the matter is, I am terrified and I have no one to turn to for ‘help’.

If you wanted to ‘help’ it would mean the world to me if you shared my Fundraiser


Years ago I did have help, and hope…the people who were in my life then are no longer…so this battle I am fighting I am doing alone in the real world and with the breath, beauty, love, compassion & kindness of my online family ♥

Created in Corel X6, burning, layers, dodging

Dedicated to snowy momma owl goddess ♥ you will forever be the reason why I am still here and continue to fight
