It’s been a pretty challenging couple weeks but amongst the transitions and obstacles I received a really great gift yesterday. After the passing of our family dog, I was given the big A-ok that my battle with Lyme disease is coming to an end and I can officially , safely have children. For me, this is a dream come true. I think it’s ironic that both ‘Prevail’ albums were made when I was at my height in illness. I laid down on the studio floor all the time to rest. Had a chronic sore throat, fatigued to the core, muscles ripping from small movements , terrible joint pain, brain fog, you name it. Willpower can push you through a lot. No one (including my band) but my family really knew what I was going through and I spent the following months after in a clinic, all alone, treating it aggressively before our fall tour. We still don’t understand Lyme completely but much of my family has been severely affected by it and all we know is when you kill most of it, you start getting your life back. I was very lucky they supported me through the treatment. Next week I will finally be taking the IV port out of my heart as I will no longer be needing it. 🎉Don’t worry, the kids aren’t happening soon, lots of rockin to do, but they will be a part of my future ☺️.
