Caravan Sonnet: a quote that has impacted me deeply

a quote that has impacted me deeply


I shared this quote on instagram several months ago and y'all, I LOVE this quote. So often, for thousands of different reasons, we can feel alone and like this is the way our stories will always be. I first heard this quote in the middle of my quest to find out the reasons why at a young age I had become unable to walk, was needing a feeding tube, and my entire system was crashing. After traveling across the country and seeing more than 273 doctors I was finally correctly diagnosed with Advanced Late Stage Lyme Disease in March 2013. Three short months later I was also diagnosed with Cancer. This health journey has the potential to be extremely lonely and isolating, but I see each and every day beautiful ways the truth of this quote. 

No matter your situation, hold on to hope friends, you are NOT alone and this is NOT the end of your story.

  1. This is a beautiful quote. Thank you for sharing your story - having seen a very close friend of mine go through the process of being diagnosed (after a very long time) with Lyme disease I saw how lonely it could be for her. I'll be keeping you and your health in my thoughts.

I am so sorry to hear of your close friend who has suffered through the difficult road to get diagnosed and the journey that she had. It can be an incredibly lonely road to walk- I truly understand that. Thank you so much for sharing and for taking the time to stop by !!
