Now I’m keeping the blog going to share what I’ve learned—and what I continue to learn. There’s news and research all the time, even though the media only seems to cover this epidemic occasionally—curious considering that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that 300,000 people are infected in the US every year.
Do the math over a decade; that’s a lot of people. Many doctors and researchers immersed in helping Lyme patients believe that number is very low because of misdiagnoses and under-reporting.
There’s lots of misinformation out there about Lyme, if you haven’t realized that yet.
I’m not a doctor, but I am someone who knows what it’s like to live with this illness. I’ve learned a thing or two. Looking around on my blog, you’ll find:
I hope they will answer some of your questions, or point you to a helpful source. Or maybe just let you know you are not alone.
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is “Take care of more than the medical side of things.” Like any other serious chronic illnesses, Lyme can strip away critical connections to life around you.
Don’t let it happen.
Remember that you are not Lyme disease. You are still you.
If you are critically ill, do your best to hold onto the meaningful people and things that connect you to life and love.
I wish you health.
