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

A life completely transformed due to a single tick bite. It’s crazy to think one tiny little bug can do such insane damage to a human’s body. Lyme Disease is very real and very scary. My organs fight hard every day to defeat the deadly bacteria. Even though my life has completely changed, I am grateful for this tick. It’s like it knew I needed to learn all these lessons about life and death. It is a difficult journey experiencing a chronic illness that has no cure or remedy. But with my faith I know healing is not impossible. God has my life in His hands and I know the lessons I’ve learned during this journey through illness have shaped me into a better human being. But don’t get me wrong, if I ever have another tick on my body… you will hear me screaming and running away like a screeching monkey!!

To my fellow Lymies: Don’t let Lyme overcome your life, let your strength overcome this disease. You are more than this disease. You are a beautiful warrior soul who has purpose. This may feel impossible to overcome. But it’s not. You can overcome anything if you set your heart and mind to it. Why? Because we are more than our diseases, we are more than Lyme. <3 Sending love, prayers, and hope out to you all!
