Natural Plant Medicine + Adventure
I have Lyme disease, but this isn’t a blog about Lyme. If you have Lyme, and I hope to God you don’t, you probably already know that the standard medical model for the treatment of this disease doesn’t work for shit. But again, this blog isn’t about Lyme. It’s about problems without ready solutions.
Growing up, I got an award for top kid flautist in the state, or some such crap. I also played Annie, the lead, in the school musical. I danced, I modeled, I marched in the band. The prevailing child-rearing philosophy held that success equaled happiness, so my mother found many activities at which I could excel and enrolled me. I hated all of it.
