Trip to the beach

On Monday, I took a trip to the beach. I enjoyed my time talking and laughing with an old friend. Pretty much was an eating and lots of talking trip. I didn't walk on the beach, but I saw the ocean. Funny thing happened. Funny only happens to me funny ... not funny humorous in any kind of way funny.

So in September of 2008, we went to the beach ... Upon our return I wrote this:

We were on our way once again and made it to the first bridge. Now bridges, they frighten me. A few things other than bridges frighten more more (heights, the S critter, tunnels, etc.). Bridges over water ... they frighten me more than regular bridges. Now we had to go over this bridge to get to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We not only had to go over ONE bridge ... we had to go over TWO bridges. One of those TWO bridges was one of those "fancy dancy" bridges that opens up in the middle when a boat happens to need to go through. Wanna guess what happened when we were on the bridge? If you said, "the bridge opened up while you were on it" you just won 17,000 points. And just like on the Drew Carey show, they aren't good for anything.


So now that you've reread this doozy of a paragraph, know that since we made it all the way to the ocean that we had to go over one of those fancy dancy draw bridges. And guess what happened while we were on it ..... IT OPENED UP! *gahhh*

Anyways had awesome food with an awesome friend.

I saw your posts and would like to know what doctor you see. I also live in Raleigh and am dealing with Lyme. I've traveled half way across the country trying to find a doctor and would like to try one closer.

My email is cellengineer at gmail. Thanks!

Lauren, I will email you this afternoon.

Portland, Oregon has bridges like that over the Willamette river. They always made me a little nervous, but I never actually thought that what happened to you...twice, could actually happen.

I now have a new fear to add to my list: bridges over water.

P.S. I just found your blog and am looking forward to following you from now on. Thank you for sharing your experiences with lyme!

Hi Tina, it's nice to meet you. So glad you found me.

So glad I could help someone else add a new fear to life. :) KIDDING. Yeah. They freak me out big time, but this time I focused on the conversation I was having with my friend instead of my fear of the water draw bridge.

BTW: if you look over to the right you'll see several links that will make it easier to see my Lyme history.
