If you’ve been following me then you probably already know: I achieved remission from Lyme disease and its major co-infections at the start of the year. Then I totally unplugged & took a some time off, which I talk about in my post: How I Transitioned From a Chronic Illness Identity.
Sometimed you just need stupid easy. Like a tasty meatball recipe that’s only got 3 ingredients.
Remember playing with Play-Doh as a kid? Or mud? Remember pretending to make food? It was fun! Well making meatballs is fun. It’s food-play for adults. And unlike the faux-foods of our childhoods, these handmade creations are not only edible, they’re deelish.
My favorite way to have food-fun is to pick out an album I can sing-along with. Oh yeah baby, it’s karaoke time! Even though I love cooking, I know if I push myself, I won’t be having fun. But sitting down for Food Prep Karaoke? That’s a blast.
When this starts to happen it’s time to unplug & recenter.
Chronic Lyme Disease treatments aren’t covered by any form of insurance. I rely on donor support through my GoFundMe campaign to help me afford my healing. The good news is crowdfunding has helped me a lot. The bad news is it’s basically medical panhandling.
Our Beloved Bodies are always working hard to help us heal, so give thanks!
My stainless steel enema bucket and I go way back…

Yup, this happened. What matters is that I choose to NOT internalized any food shame, forgave myself, and got right back on track with healing self care. My mantra in these moments: I am perfectly imperfect.
