Yesterdays Good Day with Lyme Disease

Yesterday I had a fashion show. It was very fun, but tiring. I woke up at 5:00am and had to be there at 8:15am. I didn’t feel well, but decided to go anyways, since I was exited. I had to stand in heels for about 3 hours and walk the runway multiple times. My mom said she was worried that I was going to fall over, since I had to walk so much. Luckily I didn’t fall or get too sick. It was also very loud which is hard for me, because I’m very sensitive to loud sound. Even though it was hard, it was very rewarding. I feel proud of myself for being able to get through that successfully. By the way, walking is a rare thing for me. My legs tend to stop working and I collapse unless someone is holding on to me.

After my fashion show we went to go pick up my mobility scooter (wheelchair). I’m exited I got one, because now I can get out of the house more, especially this summer. Last summer I wasn’t able to leave the house much with my family. I’m hoping now that I have one I can go downtown with them while they walk around. Usually I can’t walk much, especially for hours. Now that I have my own wheelchair I’ll be able to go out even when I’m feeling sick. I have been using my cane, but that is still tiring for me. Also when my legs stop working, it is hard for me to walk using a cane. Anyways I’m exited to have more freedom now!

We then drove to a different area of Denver to get lunch. We went to this small Mexican restaurant. The food was really good and we got to sit outside, since it was warm out. By this time I was very tired and we headed home.

When we got home I took a nap. When I woke up from my nap I was even more tired then before I decided to lie down. I never understand how that works. At around 7:00pm my mom, dad, and I went to an Indian restaurant for dinner. We go every Sunday. It is my favorite kind of food, and I tend to eat more there. We talked about the fashion show, my wheelchair, and other things. It was nice having dinner with just my parents. My sister and brother decided to stay home and eat pizza. When we were done we went home for the night. I went straight to bed, hoping to not feel too sick the next day. Luckily today I am not too bad. I am in pain and tired, but it was a long day for me and it went well. I’m hoping to have more good days like this in the future.
