According to Cedars-Sinai, CIDP occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the myelin sheaths around nerve cells. But exactly what triggers this isn’t clear. Symptoms are usually the same for all types of CIDP. They can include: Tingling in the arms and legs Gradual weakening of the arms and legs Loss of reflexes Loss of balance and your ability to walk Loss of feeling in the arms and legs, which often starts with not being able to feel a pin prick
First off, I would like to state that I still wholeheartedly believe in the treatment that I had at Klinik St. Georg. I believe that Lyme Disease is no longer active in my system, despite being re-bit in May 2019. As of August 2021 I did not and have not had any relapses to the caliber of my symptoms prior to treatment at the Klinik! I have been off all medications and supplements since Summer of 2019 and had been feeling quite good for quite a long time.
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER!
Several of our neighbors are also struggling with the same feelings of confusion, nervousness, and are overloaded with the pressures of what's going to come next ... We need to try and shift our focus on what we can do NOW
"Chin up, Chest out, Hands on Hips, Legs hip length apart, and Plant Yourself to the Ground!" - stand in a superhero pose for just five minutes before a job interview or a big presentation or a really hard task, you will not only feel more confident, you will perform immeasurably better!
"Know that deep inside you are resilient, brave and so much stronger and more powerful than your fears.
Every day we wake up with The Power to Create Our Own Happiness!
Never give up on your Dream, just because of one Nightmare.
Today marks SIX MONTHS since I arrived home from Klinik St. Georg:
I am excited to announce that I have joined the Global Lyme Alliance Peer to Peer Mentor Program as a Certified Peer Mentor. I really want to find ways to give back to the Lyme Community. This will be one of my first steps in truly giving back to such a needing community.
When we are kind to ourselves we can truly allow ourselves to thrive.
There is A LOT to be happy about. But the reality is, Sometimes we have setbacks and, you know what? That's O.K.!
My Inner Mantra:
I am stronger than I know.
If we are strong and motivated every day then we will prevail beyond the rest! We must keep strong each day. Turn our pain into something bigger. Turn it into strength. Get yourself up and out! Focus on ALL that good in this life!
Accept your Pain.
Embrace your struggle.
Accept the Challenge.
Live Life with Passion.
and Live Wholeheartedly.
MY DAILY MANTRA: "YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW!"
“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.”

During my time at the Klinik I felt the better than I had felt in years. The fresh air of The Alps, the healing power of Kurpark, and KSG all together where full of so much energy that woke my whole body up. I think my body was beyond ready to fight the big fight.
