Welcome Back @AvrilLavigne talks about her Lyme disease diagnosis

The signs and symptoms of Lyme disease vary and usually affect more than one system. The skin, joints and nervous system are affected most often.
Early signs and symptoms

These signs and symptoms may occur within a month after you’ve been infected:

Rash. A small, red bump may appear at the site of the tick bite. This small bump is normal after a tick bite and doesn’t indicate Lyme disease. However, over the next few days, the redness may expand forming a rash in a bull’s-eye pattern, with a red outer ring surrounding a clear area. The rash, called erythema migrans, is one of the hallmarks of Lyme disease. Some people develop this rash at more than one place on their bodies.
Flu-like symptoms. Fever, chills, fatigue, body aches and a headache may accompany the rash.

Later signs and symptoms

In some people, the rash may spread to other parts of the body and, several weeks to months after you’ve been infected, you may experience:

Joint pain. You may develop bouts of severe joint pain and swelling. Your knees are especially likely to be affected, but the pain can shift from one joint to another.
Neurological problems. Weeks, months or even years after you were infected, you may experience inflammation of the membranes surrounding your brain (meningitis), temporary paralysis of one side of your face (Bell’s palsy), numbness or weakness in your limbs, and impaired muscle movement.

Less common signs and symptoms

Several weeks after infection, some people develop:

Heart problems, such as an irregular heartbeat. Heart problems rarely last more than a few days or weeks.
Eye inflammation.
Liver inflammation (hepatitis).
Severe fatigue.

When to see a doctor

If you’ve been bitten by a tick and experience symptoms

Only a minority of deer tick bites leads to Lyme disease. The longer the tick remains attached to your skin, the greater your risk of getting the disease. If you think you’ve been bitten and experience signs and symptoms of Lyme disease — particularly if you live in an area where Lyme disease is prevalent — contact your doctor immediately. Treatment for Lyme disease is most effective if begun early.

See your doctor even if symptoms disappear
It’s important to consult your doctor even if signs and symptoms disappear because the absence of symptoms doesn’t mean the disease is gone. Left untreated, Lyme disease can spread to other parts of your body from several months to years after infection — causing arthritis and nervous system problems. Ticks also can transmit other illnesses, such as babesiosis and Colorado tick fever.

Why don’t you just belt up?

I’m amazed by the number of people here who think wearing a seat belt is not a good idea, and that they think it’s ok to break the Law as well by not doing so In a crash you’re twice as likely to die if you don’t wear a seatbelt

Drivers and passengers aged 17-34 have the lowest seatbelt-wearing rates combined with the highest accident rate
There is evidence that people are less likely to use seatbelts on short or familiar journeys – this puts them at serious risk of injury in a crash

Drivers and passengers who fail to wear seatbelts in the front and back of vehicles are breaking the law
Drivers caught without a seatbelt face on-the-spot fines of £100. If prosecuted, the maximum fine is £500

You don’t need to wear a seat belt if you’re:

  • a driver who is reversing, or supervising a learner driver who is reversing
  • in a vehicle being used for police, fire and rescue services
  • a passenger in a trade vehicle and you’re investigating a fault
  • driving a goods vehicle on deliveries that is travelling no more than 50 metres between stops
  • a licensed taxi driver who is ‘plying for hire’ or carrying passengers

Millions of car drivers and passengers are still failing to wear seatbelts – 30 years to the day  after it became compulsory to buckle up, road safety experts warned today.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists says five per cent of Britain’s 37 million motorists flout the ‘clunk-click’ law introduced on January 31, 1983. Four per cent of front seat passengers also ignore the regulation along with 11 per cent of rear seat occupants.

Car manufacturers have had to install seatbelts since 1965 but the law requiring drivers to wear them did not come in to force for another 18 years.   In 1991 the law changed again making it a legal requirement for adults to wear seatbelts in the back of cars. The legislation is credited with saving thousands of lives but IAM chief executive Simon Best says the message has yet to hit home with many drivers – particularly those aged between 17 and 34 who have the lowest compliance rate.

Unless it comes as an update you may never even notice

Your looking down at your Internet device reading this ignoring the ‘real’ life around you
What’s really important to you???

To many they prefer to have hands around a metal device rather than around flesh of their loved ones, look loving onto a laptop, tablet or mobile instead of Quality time with those who don’t need to be charged to function. One day the one you love will be gone – but unless it comes as an update you may never even notice.

Can you get to heaven without dying !!

Entering Heaven alive (called by various religions “ascension”, “assumption”, or “translation”) is a belief held by multiple religions and traditions. Since death is generally considered the normal end to an individual’s life on Earth and the beginning of the afterlife, entering Heaven without dying first is considered exceptional and usually a sign of God’s special recognition of the individual’s piety.

Anyway – there are two possible exceptions to this general rule that humans could not go to heaven, Enoch and Elijah, but neither is clear. The Book of Genesis mentions Enoch as one who “was no more” because “God took him”, but it does not explicitly say whether he was alive or dead, and it does not say where God took him.

But – Why did God take Enoch and Elijah to heaven without them dying? Answer: According to the Bible, Enoch and Elijah are the only two people God took to heaven without them dying. Genesis 5:24 tells us, “Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.” Second Kings 2:11 tells us, “Suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.” Enoch is described as a man who “walked with God for 300 years” (Genesis 5:23). Elijah was perhaps the most powerful of God’s prophets in the Old Testament. There are also prophecies of Elijah’s return (Malachi 4:5-6).

So why did God take Enoch and Elijah? The Bible does not specifically give us the answer. Some speculate that they were taken in preparation for a role in the end times, possibly as the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3-12. This is possible, but not explicitly taught in the Bible. It may be that God desired to save Enoch and Elijah from experiencing death due to their great faithfulness in serving and obeying Him.

Whatever the case, God has His purpose, and while we don’t always understand God’s plans and purposes, we know that “His way is perfect” (Psalm 18:30).                 Recommended Resources: The Quest Study Bible and Logos Bible Software.

So back to my original Question – I think, yes, if you are determined and persistent, you can. (In other words, there is no reason anyone needs to experience a near death experience to see Heaven.) By persistence, I mean, this may take one past life session or many sessions and years to accomplish. Don’t give up.
