I’d rather laugh than cry- even in the midst of Lyme.
This probably seems like a no-brainer to most. Obviously the more pleasurable thing to do is laugh. But the funny thing I’ve found living with Lyme is, sometimes, its easier to feel sorry for myself and throw a pity party and just break down and cry. Than to actually stay positive and humorous and remember to laugh.
But I believe laughing is healing and even if its not, who doesn’t feel good after a long laugh? If you’re anything like me, almost ANYTHING can make me laugh, my cat chasing her tail, a good trashy reality show, any movie with Seth Rogen.
I know its really hard to not give in- to not scream and constantly ask WHY ME? And I do it fairly often, believe me!
But if you can, take a moment and do something purely for the sake of laughing and making yourself happy. Because who knows? Maybe it is healing after all.
