Like everyone else I have been busy getting ready for summer. I have planted spring crops, have been cleaning out and repairing my water garden and I had decided to convert an old ornamental garden to a medicinal herb garden. I had pruned some roses and was raking up the branches and some other winter debris when I had a sudden attack of vertigo I just couldn't stop falling until I hit the ground. The place I was at had a little fence that I banged my face on and a stack of stepping stones I was planning on using in this little bed. Well I landed right on top of those, smack on my ribs. Ouch!! I went to the local walk in clinic, while there I had her check a bite that had turned nasty, yep a tick bite probably Lyme but possibly another tick borne illness. Ah yes the great outdoors. So now for the next two weeks, I am under orders to stay inside as the antibiotic for the Lyme makes me sensitive to sunlight. No lifting, pushing, pulling, bending over or stretching up. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day, eating probiotics like they are going out of style and taking 10 deep breaths and hour. Meanwhile I peer out of my window watching the grass grow and the gardens lay fallow, with deep longing and a lot of irritation. The only bright spot is a friend of mine has two teenage children who are coming over today to finish the clean up and possibly do my first mowing of the year. So how does anyone else deal with an incapacitating illness or accident? I may go crazy.
