I’ve been known to buy a pair of shoes … or 2 … or 3 … or …. Well, I love shoes! When Chronic Lyme Disease kept me in bed, dizzy and unable to be social, I eventually thought I might as well get rid of all my great shoes because I thought I’d never need them again. It made me really sad , but someone who was in bed for 18 hours a day doesn’t need nice or fancy stuff, right?
When I started to get better, buying my first pair of high heeled shoes again was my way of saying that I believed that I would get even better and that it would “stick”. (Lyme disease is known for flares and ups and downs so I never knew if my good days would last for very long.)
Now my shoes are not just an obsession for me. It’s also a statement. Sure, I plain like to buy unique, cool shoes but now it’s also symbolic of my saying to Lyme disease, “Take THAT!” and telling The Universe that I’m claiming my life again.
So when you see me, check out my shoes and smile for me because it’s my statement of taking hold of my life. They may not be in every photo of me, but I promise, the cool shoes are there. And I will never, ever, ever, ever go back to living a life that’s not meant for me.
