Story 85

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

I was four when I was bitten by a tick. It was found embedded in my scalp and eventually had to be burned out. I struggled with intense migraines, constant illness, would contract random infections, and celiac disease, all due to Lyme. I missed so much school my senior year of high school I almost didn’t graduate.

I’ve seen too many doctors to count, taken more medication than I’d care to admit and had so many “scans” to find something wrong with my body that I’m terrified about the amount of radiation in my body.   

I finally have a diagnosis.

24 years later, I still struggle with the migraines, and the celiac disease; the aches, pains, and fatigue. But I’m slowly getting better.
