"Homesick"
Mercy Me

You’re in a better place,
I’ve heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times
I’ve rejoiced for you
But the reason why I’m broken,
the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don’t understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I’ll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
Cause I’m still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
I’ve never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I’ll hold onto Jesus with all that I have
To see you again
To see you again

And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home’s where my heart is then I’m out of place
Lord, won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won’t you give me strength to make it through somehow

I’ve never been more homesick than now

It is somewhat uncommon for a cause of death to be listed as Lyme Disease on an autopsy report from what I have read. However, there are many problems which Lyme can cause to your organs, your brain, your joints, your emotions, etc.

Sadly, one cause of death is suicide from Lyme Disease. As you know Lyme can be devastating to a patient’s finances, family, friendships, support system etc. I would encourage anyone who is feeling suicidal to get help. There are hotlines, clergy, counselors and other mechanisms to help.

I’m glad it was helpful. It’s hard to read about this topic as it is so scary. I never knew you could die from it until my friend passed away.

OMG! Please don't just accept what doctors tell you! Most of them don't know how to even help with more known illnesses. Please look for alternatives. I have found healing with an herbal formula and know so many others who have been healed by it both here in my city and friends I've made thru support groups on line. Don't give up! Get the body in balance, build the immune system, stop letting doctors do things to you that make you worse! There is hope. I've been taking 3 different herbals: BWF: A-L, Detox 2, and A-INFALM and I am doing really well. Find what works for you!

Even MDs are starting to use alternatives since they realize a lot of what they are doing isn't working and is making things worse. Dr. Horowitz just wrote a book about Lyme and the formulas I take are apparently part of his protocol. Yay!
