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

It has affected every single thing in every single day.. stole my role as mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, teacher, play mate, gardener, baker, chef, seamstress, artist, and the list goes on and on… it didn’t steal my life though it did come close.. I’m here and alive and can still laugh at my nut kids from the couch, I can still check out my husband as he walks around the house even though I’m just sitting, I can admire my garden that I didn’t plant or weed but it’s still mine… I’m the boss and tell everyone what to do even if I’m just sitting on the porch while doing it and while admiring my garden… if you’re here, you haven’t lost your life. Yes it changed.. yes it’s hard .. very very hard, but we can’t lose our life while we are still alive unless we give it away…
