Gratitude Chart and Daily Affirmations

Hey everyone,

Everyday we talk about Lyme treatments, events, news, research and symptoms. Lately I have neglected the “Corner of Hope” section on this blog. Then today, Dr Sally sent me this “gratitude chart.” I thought I would share it with all of you. Sometimes it’s nice to take a little break from thinking about all the suffering in our lives and concentrate on the good things we still have too. It will definitely help to remind us of why we fight so hard to get better too. There are still good things in our days too. ♥

It is also good to practice daily affirmations. Think of it as retraining your brain. Stop the negative thoughts from penetrating your day and let happiness in. Let your brain tell your body to put out good chemicals and not anxiety and fear provoking ones throughout the day. Let your body learn to rest and heal.

  1. I am thankful for my faith, that keeps me going when I by myself have no desire to.

    Also for a wonderful caregiver who has given up so much to stop and help to take care of me.

    I am thankful for days I can look outside of the box of lyme and co-infections.

    I am thankful for a new outlook on life and what is really important

  2. i’m thankful for the wonderful 40 yrs. of marriage i had to the only “love of my life” jack.

    jack never knew me healthy during our entire marriage. i’ve had chronic lyme 48 yrs. this christmas.

    he passed away coming up 2 yrs. nov. 13, 2 nights after being diagnosed with advanced cancer in lung/liver areas.

    i was blessed by being able to get his brain autopsied last year!

    11.22.15, dr. alan macdonald called me jack’s brain made WORLDWIDE history having 2 diseases never found together before in a brain autopsy!

    borrelia/lyme and lewy body dementia causing violent hallucinations like robin williams had.

    because jack is 1st worldwide, he is being written up for a medical scientific JOURNAL to be submitted/published somewhere in future.

    I’LL BE 1ST CO-AUTHOR, a non-medical person, over alan, paula pierce, and tom grier!!

    i’m blessed to “make things happen” and not wondering why they will NOT happen.

    i’m blessed to not being bedridden except when i initially got sick 48 yrs. ago & confined to bed for 2 wks.

    i am blessed having met around 100,000 people to date on the lyme boards and private emails during 12 yrs. on the boards.

    best wishes, hugs/prayers to all,

    bettyg, iowa activist of many diseases!

  3. I am grateful for being alive and out of bed, being able to do my ADL’s, I a extremely grateful for my night in shinning armor, my Husband! He was the angel that caught me before I fell on my face. He wouldn’t know me without having lyme, we meant a yr after I found my darling buddy! So he basically been with me from the beginning of my road to hell. I moved to DE. in 2003 and meant my knight in 2004. I lost everything I had b/c of this disease! O well, life goes on. I get up every day for him and do what I can, which he is “thankful” for me doing it. O “I” have my moments, but he is good about things. I am grateful for my 2 wonderful fur babies too! They make me get up and move and love me for me. I have other things I am grateful for, but they are my priority.
