I am a Lyme patient in remission for about 5 years after having been undiagnosed for 4 years and in treatment for about 2 years.
Due to nerve damage, I was unable to walk during the time I was raising a baby and an active 4-year-old. I went to 8 doctors, none of whom ever suggested I should be tested for Lyme disease.
I now have returned to walking 3 miles, 5 days a week, and playing tennis. I am currently assisting other afflicted families cope practically and emotionally. Helping others is beneficial to one’s healing.
Having great doctors, powerful medicines, therapeutic alternatives, spiritual beliefs, and a community of caring supporters is crucial to restoration. I learned so much in the valley–making friends, deepening my faith, and helping others along the way.
