Treating Lyme Disease Update

Lyme Disease TreatmentI’ve been relatively quiet recently about my journey with Lyme Disease, but it’s not because a lot hasn’t happened because it most certainly has. Rather, I started a new treatment and wanted to wait until I was done or at least almost done before giving an update. I know that a ton of you have been following me, wondering whether or not I’ve improved, and I don’t want to give advice if it doesn’t work. So many people are suffering from this awful disease and I’ve been using myself as somewhat of a guinea pig to see what works and what doesn’t work. I have a mission to help out as many people as I possibly can deal with, heal, and prevent this disease. From someone who has been dealing with it for a year and a half, I don’t wish this upon anyone. If there is something I can do to bring more Lyme Disease awareness you better believe I will do it, hence why I’m writing this blog.


There is another reason why I’m not talking much about it lately. In the beginning of my Lyme journey I went around to many Lyme Disease chat forums only to find that the majority of people are depressed and have let this disease define who they are. I absolutely refuse to be the “lyme guy.” I’m Josh Spencer, Top Beachbody Coach, great father and husband, successful entrepreneur, not the “lyme guy.” Lyme Disease does not and will not ever define me. Is it a part of my life? Absolutely, but it doesn’t have to be my entire life. I won’t let it. For those of you that are all over social media bitching about this disease, calling yourself “Lyme Lisa,” take a step back and think about what you’re doing. There is a hell of a lot more to you than just Lyme. And sure, things might seem dark right now and awfully shitty, but you have to just focus on the good things that are going on in your life. That’s a major part of how I’ve gotten through the worst of this disease. I have a very successful business that I love, a family that means the world to me, incredibly supportive friends, and I focus on them, not what I’ve gone through.

Lyme Disease Update

So how am I doing? To be honest, I’m doing fantastic. Yes, you read that right, I’m doing great right now. In fact, I’ve been so great that I’ve gotten my normal life back and have very little, if any symptoms. I’ll get to more about that here in a bit, but first I want to talk about what I’ve done and what I’m doing. So first, if you didn’t read any of my other posts,  this is my second round of treatment and this one is much different from the first. You can see my first Lyme disease update here. If you really don’t feel like reading that post, to sum it up I started antibiotic treatment in October after being official diagnosed with Lyme from the iGenex testing. I was on Amoxycillin and Clarithromycin, taking 6 Amoxycillin and 2 Calrithromycin per day. However, I knew that healing required more than just ABX. I did a ton of research and changed my entire diet, eliminating dairy and gluten, and consumed foods that would only help me heal. In addition, I went through a massive home detox and starting using chemical free and organic products for everything, such as toothpaste, shampoo, bar soap, and laundry detergent. I’m not going to go into detail about exactly what I did because you will find that in my detoxing around the house post, but there’s quite a few other things that played a crucial role in the progress that I did make during that first round.

However, during the latter part of my treatment, early on in the first quarter of this year, I hit a plateau with my progress. I was doing better, but I still had consistent symptoms. That’s when I took a step back and analyzed everything that I was doing. Being a business owner, I’m extremely analytical and always have to figure out solutions to problems, and I took the same approach with Lyme as I do with my business. I started doing more research and discovered some major flaws in my initial treatment. First, the lyme persisters (the little bastards that go into hiding when they sense a threat and come back out to reproduce when there is no longer a threat), weren’t being properly destroyed. Rather, the constant barrage of antibiotics just sent them hiding in my spinal fluid and muscle and connective tissue. I started feeling better because I was getting rid of just about all the Lyme bacteria besides the persisters. In addition, the initial treatment didn’t address the different forms that the borrelia could transform into. When borrelia transforms into the bleb or cyst forms, antibiotics have an extremely tough time attacking it. And borrelia is smart. They will constantly transform in and out of different forms all depending on how much of a threat they feel. Remember, they are just like us and want to stay alive. They will adjust accordingly to survive and reproduce. It’s just nature.

So I sifted through the bullshit all over the internet and found a treatment with research and documentation to back it up. There are so many damn people with their opinions on how to properly treat Lyme, but as you know, opinions are like assholes. I wanted to find something that made complete sense, and that’s when I found a treatment on a Lyme disease forum called “cured of lyme in 60 days.” The guy who created the treatment backed up everything he said with scientific research. It made complete sense to me. I spent hours going through it all and was thoroughly impressed with the plan. And the kicker was that he spent all of that time posting it and backing it up with resources and he doesn’t benefit from it in any way. It was blatantly obvious that he created this treatment to help others combat the disease. After weighing my options I decided to start his plan.

My New Lyme Treatment Plan

What does his plan consist of? First, before starting treatment you’re supposed to go through 3 weeks of using Apricot kernels. I’m not going to go into great detail about the reasons why he recommends doing this, but to make it short, bitter apricot kernels have something in it called Amygdalin that helps attack pathogens. I encourage you to do your own research on apricot kernels and their benefits. There are a ton of articles posted in that forum thread that goes into detail about this. Anyways, so I stopped all of my antibiotics and gradually increased the amount of apricot kernels I was taking in per day to 6 per day (I started at 1-2 per day) over a 3 week time span. Once the 3 weeks were up, I started up on 2 different antibiotics, Tindamax and Minocyline. However, instead of taking them every day, you’re supposed to “pulse” them, meaning you take them every other day. These 2 are very effective at tackling all of the various forms of borrelia. I also have continued taking the apricot kernels (You’re not supposed to take more than 1 per hour), consuming about 6-10 per day. In addition, every day you’re supposed to take a supplement called Pinella Brain Cleanse. This cleans out the dead bacteria from the brain as you are killing them off, therefore reducing brain fog. I believe this has helped me drastically. Since I started taking it my brain fog has been virtually eliminated. Before I started my first treatment and even into the treatment my brain fog was awful and it gradually got better but never went away.

Now let’s talk about probiotics. Everyone knows that antibiotics kill both the good and bad gut bacteria, so if you’re bombarding your system constantly with antibiotics you can easily develop a yeast overgrowth called candida. You don’t want this so you have to make sure that you offset the antibiotics with probiotics. However, Will told me that I absolutely should not take a probiotic on antibiotic days. The reason being that the antibiotics will actually attack the good bacteria from the probiotics rather than going after the borrelia. I want the antibiotics focusing all of the effort on the borrelia, so I’ve been taking a 100 billion probiotic only on my off days, along with drinking 1-2 kombucha drinks. My favorite are the Synergy kombucha drinks with chia seeds. Just in case there still might be a yeast overgrowth I’ve been taking Nystatin once a week. So far I have had no issues of candida.

Now let’s talk about supplements and nutrition. If you suffer from Lyme disease, you know those little bastards like to suck up all of the vitamins in your system so a lot of us are deficient. Before I started my first round of treatment I was extremely deficient in most vitamins. I’ve been taking Vitamins A, D, E, C, and Zinc daily during this most recent treatment. In addition, I’ve been taking Shakeology twice a day on my off days. The reason I’m consuming it only on my off days is because it contains probiotics and again, I don’t want to take in any probiotics on the days I’m taking my antibiotics. I’ve also been having a shot of apple cider vinegar every day to alkalinize the body, and have been having a amino acid (MRM BCAA+G) supplement with a scoop of glutamine every day as well. As far as nutrition goes, I’ve been eating just as clean as I was during my first round of treatment, which is pretty damn clean. No gluten, dairy, and taking in a lot of organic fruits, veggies, and lean meat. During the first round I significantly reduced the amount of fruit I was consuming because borellia feed off of sugar, but the better I’ve gotten the more I’ve increased the amount of fruit. Now I’m at about 2-4 servings of fruit per day. I’ve even added back in bananas to my diet (maybe 1-2 per week), which I stopped eating for about 8 months. And I’ve very, very slowly started adding back in alcohol. I might have a drink or 2 every other week on my off days. I’ve only been doing it, though, because I’ve been feeling so much better. Ideally, though, you don’t want to consume any alcohol while going through treatment, but it’s been a long ass time for me and I want to enjoy going out with my friends just a little bit.

How about working out? I’ve stopped working out completely to let my body do the work it needs to do to destroy the lyme bacteria. I don’t want it focused on healing muscle tissue from the workouts. I’m planning on starting a round of Body Beast, though, once I’m finished so that I can put back on the muscle that I lost. Right now I’m right around 158 lbs, which is about 15 lbs lighter than I was a year and a half ago. All of the weight I lost was muscle. I’m very anxious to get back into my workout routine and put back on some size. The great thing, though, is that because I’ve been eating so healthy that I haven’t put on any body fat. I’m still very lean, just also very weak.

If you didn’t see from the chat forum, the treatment is 60 days. It’s important that you detox while going through treatment because you will constantly be killing off the lyme bacteria. The last thing you want is all those toxins just sitting in your system. There are many ways to detox, but my personal favorite is the infrared sauna. I bought one earlier in the year and have been using it quite often. One of the best ways to detox is by sweating, and well, you sweat like crazy in an infrared sauna. You will have good and bad days as well, which shouldn’t be a surprise to you if you’ve been dealing with Lyme disease. I’m on day 50 of the treatment and had awful symptoms from days 4-6 and 14-20. Since then, though, my symptoms have been minimal and they continue to disappear. I’ve been just about completely symptom free for about 3 days now! That hasn’t happen in the past year and a half meaning this treatment has been working. In fact, like I stated above, I’ve gotten back to my normal life. I’ve been active outside and doing things that I used to do. When you suffer for so long and finally start feeling normal again, it’s such an incredible feeling. I have been slowly getting better for the past 3 months, but it’s been a process.

Once I’m done with this round of treatment I’m taking a break from antibiotics and going the herbal route to maintain the ground that I’ve gained. I’m going to be taking quite a few herbal supplements, including the Restore Program (which I stopped for this treatment plan), Japanese Knotweed, Cat’s Claw, and something called Tribiotics. If for some reason my symptoms return, I will try to find another Lyme specialist, but I think I’m going to be fine. I’ve made steady progress for the past 6 months. Am I cured? Probably not, but I’m getting pretty damn close.

Lyme Disease Diet

Lyme Disease DietAbout 5 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and the Igenex testing I got back a few weeks ago confirmed it. Since then, I have been putting in countless hours researching Lyme and how to recover, including the proper diet, supplements, and the different options for antibiotic treatment. I have watched videos, been reading books, and the knowledge that I’ve gained has led me to make some permanent changes in my lifestyle, and that’s exactly what I’m going to address in this post. I’m going to spend a lot of time talking about the proper Lyme Disease diet and the supplements that I am taking in daily.

First, how am I doing? I’m on my 5th week of antibiotic treatment now and feel like I have made some progress. It’s not like a typical illness, though, where you take antibiotics and feel better after a few days. Rather, it’s a slow, steady progress that might take months on end in order to make a full recovery, if that is even possible. We don’t know yet. I’m not worried about that right now, though. I’m taking it one day at a time. Anyways, like I said, I’m a little better. The “good days” are slowly taking over the “bad days,” as Lyme patients call it, and my symptoms are getting less and less severe. The brain fog has pretty much dissipated, and the next stiffness, soreness, and sharp pain has improved quite a bit, but still flares up randomly. I still have bouts of dizziness, but it’s not nearly like it was a few months back. (If you’re curious, here’s all of my other Lyme Disease symptoms I’ve been dealing with for the past 8 months.) My memory has improved and so has my speech, along with concentration, which is a really good sign. There is nothing scarier than experiencing cognitive changes. It affected my ability to do conference calls and webinars, which are a normal occurrence as a Beachbody Coach, but recently I’ve been able to start them back up again, which again, is good news. In addition, my energy has improved drastically over the past month or so. For some time there I was so exhausted that I wanted to do nothing but sleep all day, but now I feel much better and have become a little more active. I can’t do too much yet, though, because I can easily over-do it. I found that out the hard way the other day, when I took my daughters to an indoor jumping park and participated some with them. Because of my inactivity and need for rest as my body recovers, the toxins are just sitting in my lymph system, and any type of vigorous activity can cause them to move about my system, causing flare-ups in my symptoms.

My doctor, a Lyme Disease specialist, has been incredible helpful, giving me multiple treatment options and responding to my thousand questions in a very timely manner. I’ve decided on the antibiotic route because I feel it’s what I need for my current condition, and I’m confident enough to maintain a proper diet to combat all of the negative side effects of prolonged antibiotic use. Speaking of which, I feel that there are two parts of recovery and too many patients only focus on one. The one, the antibiotic side of things, is great, but if you don’t take care of what you’re putting into your body at the same time, recovery can be non-existent. What’s the point of eliminating toxins if you’re going to put them right back in? So I’ve taken personal responsibility on researching and learning different nutritional strategies to improve gut function and immune response, and I’m going to go into pretty good detail about that below.

Proper Lyme Disease Diet

Being a Beachbody Coach, I already lead a healthy lifestyle and have gained a lot of valuable knowledge on nutrition over the past 8 years. Before I started P90X, though, I ate about as bad as anyone in the country. Luckily, though, the changes I’ve made have made it a fairly smooth transition to a proper Lyme Disease diet. Like I said above, without a proper nutrition plan, recovery can be extremely slow or stop all together. What you consume has a massive effect on your body’s natural ability to heal itself. I’ve understood this and have taken it into my own hands on figuring out what is good and what isn’t good for me to eat, and I’ve had to make quite a few changes. I’ve learned most of the information below from the book called “The Lyme Diet” and the site Lyme Less Live More.


I’m a muscular guy. Before my Lyme diagnosis, I was focusing on bulking up by eating a ton of calories and following a vigorous workout routine called Body Beast. I was consuming an insane amount of carbohydrates and protein, both important for muscle development. The diets that are required to bulk up and heal from Lyme Disease, though, are practically polar opposite. For one, I have to control my macros. Let’s start with the carbohydrates. Because I’m taking so many antibiotics, it’s very common for Lyme Disease patients to develop yeast overgrowth, also known as Candida overgrowth. This happens because the antibiotics destroy both the good and the bad bacteria in the gut, which allows yeast to thrive. This is why it’s absolutely essential for Lyme patients on antibiotic treatment to take in probiotics daily. Personally, I’m taking 3 live 85 billion R.A.WProbiotics Men’s probiotics (the kind you put in the fridge) or the one I have in the picture each day, about 2 hours before or after I take my antibiotics. Anyways, Candida and the lyme spirochete itself feeds on sugar, whether it’s natural sugar found in fruits or the processed crap you find in most foods, so you have to limit the amount of sugar you consume daily. Obviously you want to completely stay away from any carbohydrates with processed sugar, which is terrible for you anyways, but you also want to limit the amount of fruit you consume as well. I’ve been sticking with 2-3 servings of fruit per day. In addition, you want to make sure the fruit you eat is low on the glycemic index. Strawberries, blueberries, avocado, lemon, blackberries, raspberries, lime, and grapefruit are all on the low end of the spectrum. Fruits like bananas, though, are high glycemic. I’ve been eating all of the good ones I mentioned above, but also get a few (I’ve been using it twice per day because of how nutritious it is) of my fruit servings from my vegan Shakeology, a nutritional supplement I’ve been taking for the past 6 years or so.

While I’m on the topic of carbohydrates, Lyme patients need to avoid gluten. Really, everyone should avoid gluten. Gluten causes inflammation, and us Lyme people don’t need any more inflammation. Foods that include gluten are breads, pastas, oats, and beer. That last one is a tough one for me as I love my beer, but I have been alcohol free since starting this treatment, and I plan on continuing that path until I’m healed. I’ve dealt with this crap long enough, I’m not going to sabotage my progress just for one night of fun. And if you are going to have pasta, I recommend brown rice or quinoa pasta, which is gluten free and much healthier for you anyways. Personally, I think they taste much better than regular pasta. With the pasta, you want to make sure you get an organic pasta sauce that doesn’t have any added sugar. Be careful, though, because even the ones that claim to be healthy sneak in the sugar. When it all comes down to it, though, you should be limiting the amount of carbs you’re consuming anyways. Most of your food should come from vegetables and protein sources.

Foods that are high in fiber are also essential in your diet. This is important for proper bowel movement and detoxification. And if you keep track, you should be having 2-3 movements per day. If you’re not, you’re probably backed up, meaning you have waste just sitting in your system, which could even be leaking into your body through something called a “leaky gut.” Obviously you don’t want that happening as you’re attempting to rid your body of these pesky little bugs and the toxins they release. If that does happen, high fiber foods will help, but maybe consider a colonics treatment or purchase an enema kit to help out. Anyways, foods that are high in fiber, like pretty much all vegetables, should be prevalent in a Lyme Disease diet anyways. In fact, the majority of your food each day should be vegetables. And oh man, I should have mentioned this earlier, but ALL of your food needs to be certified organic! Non organic food contains pesticides, antibiotics, and GMO’s, all which are not good for you, especially as you’re trying to rid yourself of toxins.


What about protein? This is interesting because I was right on the verge of switching to an all vegan diet, but after research decided against it because of the benefits of animal protein on immune and gut function. For my protein sources, I’ve been eating organic eggs, organic farm raised chicken, walnuts, almond butter, quinoa, flax seeds, brown rice, and black beans. I’m sure there are other foods I can add to that, but that’s what I’ve been sticking with for the time being. To increase my protein intake, I’ve also been using vegan Shakeology, like I mentioned above, but Sunwarrior Vegan Protein as well. The Sunwarrior brand is one of the highest quality brands out there for vegan protein. In the book I’m reading, some fish is OK to eat as well. However, I’m not a huge fan of fish. If you are going to eat any fish, it’s extremely important to make sure it’s wild caught and not farm raised. Salmon is probably the best fish you can eat.


I have to adress fats as well. Healthy fat is essential in your diet and battles inflammation. Healthy Fat Lyme DiseaseBut just like everything else, there are good fats and bad fats. Bad fats include hydrogenated oils, or the crap you find in fried and processed foods, and you want to make sure you stay away from them completely. Good fats include avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, flax seeds, fish, and flax oil. Normally, my fat intake consists of about 2-3 servings of healthy fat per day, but I have increased that slightly because of how much the omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids can help with my symptoms. In my Shakeology every day, I’ve been adding a tablespoon of flax seeds, along with a tablespoon of flax oil. I have another Shakeology snack later in the evening, where I add almond butter and coconut oil. I am also taking an Omega 3 supplement every day.


I want to move to the drinks that I can and can’t have. First of all, I have eliminated all caffeine, including coffee, which was tough to do at first, but now it’s not so bad. I went through some withdrawal symptoms initially because of drinking so much coffee and taking pre-workout supplements, but that went away after a few weeks. I’ve stayed away from all pop, which is just a bunch of toxic crap anyways, and have been drinking a ton of water. Right now I’m drinking distilled water with a pinch of pink Himalayan salt, but am going to be making the shift soon to highly filtered water. If you didn’t know, distilled water is stripped of all minerals, and adding the Himalayan salt, which is high in minerals, adds back in the minerals I need. In addition, I have just purchased some organic teas (kombucha and Pau d’Arco) and I like to drink almond milk on a daily basis as well. I don’t drink regular milk because it’s a dairy product, and Lyme patients are supposed to eliminate all dairy anyways because it causes inflammation similar to that of gluten. Again, we don’t need any more inflammation! With my tea, I squeeze a half or full lemon into it every day because of the detoxification effects of lemon juice.

Additional Lyme Disease Supplements

Along with the supplements that I listed above, there are others I’m taking daily as well, and I’m going to list them below. Im addition to these, I’m about to start taking digestive enzymes as well.

Lyme Disease Supplements

  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin C
  • Raw Zinc
  • Multi-Vitamin
  • IgG Protect
  • Glutamine
  • Raw Aloe Vera Juice

Now you know the Lyme Disease diet that I’ve been sticking with to go along with my treatment. If you have any questions, you can follow and message me on Facebook, or email me at In the next blog post, I’m going to talk about the different detoxification methods I’ve been using, so keep a look out for that. Detoxing is just as important as the antibiotics and nutrition for recovery.

*I am not a certified doctor. Before doing anything, you need to speak to your doctor. In this post, I am sharing the things that I have learned through much research and what has worked for me.

Dealing With Lyme Disease

Dealing With Lyme Disease Seven months ago my world was turned upside down. Suddenly, out of nowhere, I went from being extremely healthy to extremely sick. What was happening to me? I went from doctor to doctor, and nobody really had an explanation as to why I was feeling they way I was. In fact, quite a few of the doctors I visited thought I was nuts. I knew I wasn’t, though, and kept telling everyone that I can feel that there is something wrong with my body. I just don’t feel like myself, and knew that I was battling something serious. $10,000 later (yes, you read that correctly) I took matters into my own hands and began doing a ton of research, only to find that all of my symptoms pointed to Lyme Disease. I sought out a Lyme Disease Specialist, took the proper test, and just heard back this morning that I do in fact have Lyme. So now I’m dealing with Lyme Disease.

How did I get Lyme Disease? That is the ultimate question because I have absolutely no idea. I do have a theory, though. I grew up in the country side and remember being bitten by ticks a few times. I believe that Lyme has remained suppressed within my system for years, but because my immune system has been so strong it’s never had the opportunity to pop it’s head out. That changed after I visited Mexico and picked up parasites. I believe the parasites wreaked havoc on my immune system, letting the Lyme Disease come out to play. Again, that’s a theory. It might have been that I was bitten by some other bug, or even got bitten by a tick recently without knowing it. Whatever the case, I don’t remember any type of bullseye rash that is pretty common with Lyme infections. Regardless, here I am, writing this blog, dealing with this awful disease that has tormented so many people.

What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease? Here are all of them that I’ve dealt with for the past 7 months, and they come and go in cycles.

  • Extreme brain fog
  • Extreme dizziness
  • Neck aches and stiffness
  • Joint pain
  • Memory issues
  • Headaches
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Mood swings
  • Stomach issues
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Breathing issues
  • Slurred speech
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Ringing in the ears

I’ve come to discover that working out brings out all of the symptoms full force. It’s a Josh Spencer Beachbody Coachtough thing to swallow for a Fitness Coach. Working out is my life, it’s my career, and I will have to change some things in my lifestyle to cater to this disease. However, it’s not going to stop me from living or helping others. I made that choice about a month ago before I had no idea what was going on. When I thought about it, I have two choices. I can sit here and let this disease cripple me and let it control my entire life, leading to possibly depression, or I can choose to accept it, deal with it, and adjust my life accordingly, still remembering all of the great things in my life. I have a wonderful wife, two amazing daughters, and a little one on the way. I also love my career as a Beachbody Coach, love helping others and giving back, love the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization that I support, love my friends, and am blessed to be in an incredible financial situation because of my business. Life is good! No disease will knock me down, I won’t let it. Whenever anything negative pops into my head, I replace it with a positive thought, and I have learned how to do so through years of personal development. “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David Schwartz is the book that I started with, and it’s the book that I’m currently reading as well. I’m alive and have an incredible life, and for that I am truly thankful and will never take for granted.

How I’m Dealing With Lyme Disease

So how am I dealing with Lyme disease on the treatment side of things? Luckily, a month or so ago I found a Lyme Specialist (LLMD) and he diagnosed me with Lyme before even taking the Igenex test, so I started antibiotic treatment right away and have been doing so for the past 4 weeks. In addition to that, after much research, I have made the decision to switch to a vegan lifestyle to help with the healing process. From everything I have learned,  that seems to be the most effective. It’s important to eliminate gluten (breads, pasta), meat, lower the sugar intake, and stick with raw vegetables and fruits. I just ordered a book called “The Lyme Diet” and will be reading through that soon. I’m willing to do whatever I can to get better. I’m also thinking about going through one of the best cleanses I’ve found called the Ultimate Reset. Keep following my blog, as I will update it as I go through this treatment process. And in case you were wondering how I’ve been feeling since starting the antibiotics, I’m feeling better. The mental clarity as come back for the most part, but I’m still having a lot of neck issues and have been having trouble sleeping. If I’m comparing how I’m feeling now to how I was feeling 2 months ago, though, it’s night and day.

If you are dealing with Lyme Disease or what you think is Lyme, be sure to (1) Find a good LLMD, and (2) Get the Igenex testing done. Most normal testing for Lyme Disease is incredibly inaccurate. I had 2 tests done and they both came back negative for Lyme. The Igenex test is the best one that I have found. Hopefully your case is a little different, but my normal doctors were completely clueless as I stated above. Don’t ever let anyone tell you it’s in your head or that you’re crazy! If you feel that something is wrong with you, don’t give up and keep searching for someone who WILL HELP YOU! Trust me, I know how frustrating it can be, and sometimes you will even question your sanity, but there is someone out there who can help. This is a battle you can win. I’m on my journey to recovery and will remain as positive as I can throughout this whole thing. If you have any questions or want to connect with me, just “follow” me on Facebook.
