The biggest epidemic of our time, occurring at a rate of ten times higher per year then a combination of both AIDS and the West Nile Virus is Lyme Disease. Sadly though, Lyme Disease is under reported and commonly misdiagnosed so the actual impact and severity of this disease is lost.
Those of us who suffer from Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases feel lost, misunderstood, and just down right miserable. We're constantly told that we are over reacting, not as sick as we look, and faking for attention. The hardest thing I dealt with was lack of support and understanding.
We've all heard it before, Chronic Lyme Disease doesn't exist, but together we can try to change that misconception; starting with supporting one another, our friends, and our families. In Western North Carolina I've found it hard to find other Lymies. There are support group meetings for people with Lyme, other tick-borne disease, and also your family and friends. These support group meetings will help you cope with your illness to find people who 100% understand you, and understand what you're going through. Please check the events calendar to check dates and locations of the next support group. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
