Fully Recovered After Years of Being Bedridden with Severe Lyme Disease
I recently interviewed Jessica Sullivan, my customer service assistant and a woman who has incredible compassion for those suffering with severe illness and feeling hopeless.
Jessica has been on my team for years and understands first hand what it’s like to suffer with a severe illness and not see a way out. Because so many in the MindBody Community have been experiencing despair and hopelessness, Jessica offered to share her story so they could begin to see a way out.
She shared: “Kim, I’m hearing people share and thinking ‘That was me! This is exactly the stuff I wrote in my journal.” We decided to set up an interview so Jess could share her personal experience with severe illness, trying hard to recover, and finally finding this work and experiencing the unthinkable resolution of disease. Here is the interview I did with her…
Doctors told Jessica Sullivan she had “Neurologic Lyme Disease” and required more antibiotics. She’d been dealing with severe symptoms that left her bedridden for nearly three years. Migraines, brain fog, panic disorder, and flu like symptoms, ruled most of her days. She felt hopeless and desperate for answers. Finally there was some improvement with antibiotics and for a few years, she lived with panic disorder and agoraphobia, in constant fear that her symptoms would return. When things relapsed and her severe symptoms returned full-force, Jessica began looking beyond conventional medicine for a resolution.
She began to ask “What else is possible here?” and open to new possibilities and perspectives. Jessica took some courses and learned how emotions are linked to physical illness. She found alternative practitioners who offered new solutions, but her symptoms continued. After 4 or 5 years of searching, Jessica was thoroughly exhausted. “I was ready to surrender, but that meant quitting, so I didn’t know what to do. I thought my illness would swallow me up and that if I stopped fighting, I’d die,” she shared with me.
It was at this time her naturopathic doctor introduced her to my work. Jessica immediately began to see possibilities. “All this time I’d been asking: ‘Why is this happening to me’ and approaching my illness like a victim who was being punished, instead of someone who is empowered and able to move through this. It never occurred to me that I would access power through surrender.” Jessica shared.
Jessica is now fully healthy, living with her two beautiful daughters, working, and assisting others in moving through chronic severe illness too. She has continued to connect within to access new possibilities in her life, to receive life instead of fighting it, to believe in her power, and to allow continued expansion and abundance in her life.
We are so grateful to be able to share this with you!
If you are feeling hopeless and helpless struggling with a severe chronic illness, know that the power is also in you. It won’t come from working harder to fight the illness or by figuring out what’s wrong. It comes from opening to possibilities you didn’t know existed, surrendering to the power within you, and to connecting within to allow something new to be created.
