How has Lyme Disease affected your life?
Lyme Disease has has shut me down physically. A tiny little bug with such power. I am 55 yrs old and have been fighting this disease for 24 years… And I’m tired. I’m a very loving fun woman with great faith(which has gotten me thru this journey) I have a very strong family and furry dog angel by my side.. Which I wish for everyone fighting this crazy disease. There are not enough words to describe what I go thru on a daily basis I have been in bed for years now..some days I think I’m dying and days I wish I would. Then you get those lil miracle days THAT GIVE YOU HOPE! I have a loving husband(high school sweetheart) and two beautiful daughters(whom have watched and lived this struggle since young girls) and my dog angel whom sits by my side every moment of everyday! This is what gets me thru. Every part of my body has been affected. From brain, heart , lungs, organs removed, stomach, muscles, nerves,soooooo tired,the pain is unbearable(yet they make you fight for pain med) I have been told I’m crazy by more doctors I care to mention. I KNOW WHO I AM! I AM STRONGER(then I ever knew I could be) My faith and family carry me thru this horrible disease! WE NEED TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BEFORE MORE LIVES ARE LOST ON A DISEASE WHICH COULD HAVE A CURE… If yet one person with the answer would be BRAVE and come FOWARD and help us. WE NEED HELP! thank you for listening to my story.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by brave strong people! I am inspired by the human strength. I am inspired by how people with LYME just keep putting one foot in front of the other.. No matter how weak we may feel.. We just keep going in hope of a cure! HOPE FOR A CURE!
