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

Lyme Disease has altered my perception of what happiness looks like. I have been very sick for years and wasn’t tested for Lyme Disease until a few months ago, positive western blot for active Lyme Disease. I’ve changed how I do nearly everything, because I cannot keep up with life without accommodations. For example, my daughter crawls into bed with me so I can help her with her homework instead of us doing it at the table together. This is a simple example. I cannot play T-Ball with her every night to help her prepare for her big game, I watch out the window from my bed. My husband and I no longer dance together in the kitchen while making dinner. My hopes and dreams have changed. Happiness is much simpler now. It’s the little things that keep me going.
