How has Lyme Disease affected your life?

Lyme Disease changed my life forever. But I don’t want it to define who I am going to be for the rest of my life! Yes, I’ve been sick for going on 5 years now Lyme has been in my body for sometime but only started to show its true self about 5 years like I said… major brain fog sorry. I’ve been dealing with having Pneumonia but now I’m hoping Antibiotics have kicked it. So Lyme is rough it’s not nice to your body, it likes to play you for emotional rollercoaster ups and downs. Feel good one day, feel like you have been thrown around a few too many times… For me I just hope I can be strong tomorrow and the next day..if I get pushed down again I will probably cry, be a little mad, may scream a little. I’m being truthful, it makes you feel like you’re not you!

My brain does not always focus like it used to. I hate driving, but I still do when feeling somewhat normal… and normal is different everyday haha for me at least. Well I hope this helps awareness….

I almost forgot what Lyme disease did to me — I lost a lot of my friends… Lyme made me look crazy in some people’s eyes… Lyme disease is ruthless!

What inspires you?

One more thing — my FAMILY is my rock especially my husband. He lifts me up when I’m hard on myself! I just want to be healthy and happy again… Lyme is a constant battle, but keeping positive as much as possible helps ..okay I’m done for tonight everyone sleep well I have early morning IV’S…
