Posted July 28, 2014. When I was sick and bedridden with Lyme disease, I read that the ones who truly recover from Lyme disease and sustain their recovery from Lyme disease are those who exercise. At the time all I could do was lay in agony, how could that apply to me? But one day I started by doing 5 leg lifts on each side. And then I got to the point where I could walk around the outside of my house, one time around. But that was a big deal! I had begun. And 5 years later, I’m still exercising. During lunch time today, here in San Francisco, I ran along the water to the Golden Gate Bridge. I run because I can. Each day I try to get the most out of life. You know why. You know what it’s like not to be able to do anything and lay in pain day after day. Funny how Lyme disease changes you. Changed me for the better. Do some exercise… but easy does it!
