Have you ever felt like the universe is trying to tell you something?
Have you ever heard the same message again and again and then finally, one day you actually listen?
There were many messages over the years that the universe was sending to me that I just didn’t hear. Maybe I was too busy to listen. Maybe I was just trying to get through the day. I don’t know why the other messages didn’t get through and this one did, but I will forever be grateful that I sat down and watched Under Our Skin.
Having been bitten by deer tick many times, Lyme disease is always in the back of your mind. But I really trusted and believed the medical professionals that I hired to help me when they told me I had received adequate treatment for Lyme and that I no longer had the disease or I never had it in the first place.
That should have been the end of it.
But the universe knew better and kept gently nudging me in the right direction.
There were comments that I received on this site that suggested that it could have Lyme.
There were stories of neighbors that suffered greatly that made me wonder.
It always bothered me that what the doctors were prescribing was killing part of me in an effort to make me more mobile. It felt wrong. I always felt as though there had to be a better way.
But it wasn’t until I saw Under Our Skin that I began to listen.

I listened to that little voice inside myself that questioned the answers that I was getting from the doctors that just didn’t make sense.
And I saw myself in the people featured in the documentary. I understood their symptoms. I too had symptoms of RA, MS, Raynaud’s syndrome Lupus, and Fibromyalgia. I understood their frustration and I finally understood how I could have been steered down the wrong path for so long.
I will forever be grateful to those who took the time to comment here so that I might see. And so very grateful to Andy Abrahams Wilson and everyone in the documentary who let us into their worlds so that we might see ourselves and find the help that we needed.
I am sharing this so that if you too have a doubt sitting in the back of your head you too might see yourself in this documentary. If the idea of your immune system just turning on your body for no apparent reason makes you wonder, take some time and watch and decide for yourself.
I’m not suggesting that every person that has ever been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease has Lyme disease or any other vector borne infectious disease. What I am suggesting is that if you have ever been bitten by a tick and then later, even years later diagnosed with an autoimmune disease you might want to watch this movie with an open mind.
