“Hi Lyme friends, I’m sharing today what helps me mentally get through this journey. We really need to train our brains to think more positively. And MyVitalSide, Lindsay, on Instagram, has tons of resources. She does a really great job of explaining how to do that. I gave up drinking, which is a depressant. I use natural mood stabilizers. I know many of us react to medications. I like to dance it out, listen to feel-good music, and journal. All the things I’m grateful for. It’s so hard to get caught in that negative mindset. And last but not least, I pray and read the Bible. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and He helps me greatly and I hope this helps somebody. Keep pushing. Happy healing.” – Leeann Escobar
