How has Lyme disease affected your life? What inspires you?

This will be my only post for Lyme Disease Awareness month. Noah is my why. He has nay vague memories of a well Mom. He has memories that I wish I could erase. No child should ever have to witness the level of sickness he has been witness to over the last decade. Noah will be 14 next month. He knows more about Late Stage Lyme Disease and the associated symptoms than most doctors in the U.S. The sad reality is that over the last 22 years, nothing has changed in the medical community or with other agencies. I believe that more people are aware of the illness, but the people who can make real change for us, do not care. Even if I woke tomorrow to learn that health insurance companies would pay for me to see a qualified health practitioner and would pay for prescribed treatments, I do not believe the practitioners would agree. Reimbursement from health insurance versus the enormous amount of money the practitioner receives from each desperate patient? We all know the answer.
