How have Lyme Disease affected your life?

Hey everyone! My names Megan and I got diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease in Summer of ‘18. My doctor believes I got it congenitally from my mother. I first noticed signs of Lyme disease when I had a lot of neurological problems (slurring speech, falling, loss of balance, severe brain fog) and I knew something was off. I went to more doctors than you can count on your fingers and they all told me the same thing, “Maybe it’s just psychological, I think exercise and diet will help.” [eyeroll] I was not going to accept this answer. I knew something was wrong. 

My anxiety began to spiral downhill and I knew I needed to seek the right help fast. I started going to the Lyme Clinic that my mom goes to (she also has Lyme) and my whole world has been turned upside down. Some in a good way, some not, but overall they did find out it was Lyme and I am being treated for it accordingly. This whole journey has been a process, but I try to count my blessings each and every day that I am finally seeking the help I needed. 

What inspires you?

Just a piece of advice for anyone struggling with Lyme Disease, don’t give up. The healing process is long and hard, but it helps to surround yourself with a strong Lyme community. Love ya’ll <3
