Struggling with the constant self-obsession
After 11 months of symptoms, I was finally diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease a month ago!
My doctor put me on Plaquenil for the first four weeks (up to 4 tablets a day now) and starting me off on Minocycline today (after 4 weeks I'll be up to 4 plaquenil and 1 Minocycline a day)
Anyway that's not what my post is about really.
Just wondering if anyone else struggles with the constant "looking inward"???
In the past, I've always found that if I have things going on in my life, the best way to overcome them is to take your eyes off yourself and help someone else.
Before this, I never had any major health challenges. I find it extremely hard to find ways to help others when I physically can't actually move.
And lying in bed all the time gives me WAY too much time to conjure up things in my head... and I end up feeling very bitter and angry at all my friends (but deep down I know they are doing their best, even if it feels like I'm doing the journey alone, and I don't usually react this way in normal every day stresses)
It is very frustrating!!!
Any ideas on how we can look to others and help others from our beds????
