    #2 You are such a blessing to me, Mandi. By God's grace, you are a strong, brave lady and have fought bravely. It's almost time to go to your real home, your eternal home. It will be grand, far beyond what we can think or imagine. You will have no more disease, no more illness, no more sickness, no more pain, no more seizures, no more sin, and no more tears. I thank God for giving us the time together that he has. I love you, Princess 👸❤.

    #3 Very sentimental, touching, personal poem. It brought tears to my eyes because I know you and Mandi well, and I love each of you. I'm preparing for that day, too, and I likely won't be myself for some time as I work through it, and God brings healing to my heart. Thank you for writing this poem and sharing it. God bless you, Margaret, my LS.

    #2 Honey, my tears are your tears as I stumble to find stones instead of pebbles to lift you up to higher ground. I can't do it. I'm only human - but we both have all our faith in a tremendous, glorious Christ who was resurrected so that we may have eternal life not without Him (for that alone would be the hell of separation), but together as His Bride, the body of Christ. He has your name written in the palm of His hands. He counts the hairs on your head. He waits for you, I know only because I went there, and by God's grace, He let me feel it. Your immeasurable peace, your mightiest love, is waiting - your life is complete, and I'm picking up your baton to fight for Lyme stem cell research on fetuses, in Australia. MANDIPANDI YOUR BODY dies YOUR LOVE lives in the lives your life has saved.

    While the tick bite may corkscrew in its potentially deadly bite in the skin, a rash may go completely unnoticed by the patient at all. The absence of a rash does not rule out Lyme Disease. And the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia may also be accompanied by a diagnosis of Lyme Disease, so many doctors routinely screen for Lyme Disease when a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia is made. This is because Fibromyalgia is a "diagnosis of exclusion" that uses a list of criteria, and that list varies worldwide. So back to Lyme Disease, best to catch it in the Early Stage 1. Chronic Lyme, or Stage 2, has symptoms listed here. By the time Stage 3 is diagnosed, the patient is usually terminal with such symptoms as frequent seizures and encephalopathy.

    #2 God Bless You, as you have much to live for, indeed. We're losing a patient (that is a daughter to me) right now. The whole Lyme Community feels it, each time. Getting into a Lymie Group, Warrior or not will add much for both sides. I highly recommend it for all patients with Lyme, as does the Stanford Med-X Program. Empowering patients to share on the internet. It's all OK.
