It's been just about a month since Tired of Lyme.com was born. Since then, it has been exceeding my original intention by reaching out and giving newbies and veterans to Lyme Disease a greater understanding of what they were facing.
It really means a lot to me to receive letters from people that Tired of Lyme has given them a sense of comfort in a time of complexity and uncertainty.
My Letter to you all
You know, one of the hardest things for me or any human being of that matter is to truly convey what they feel with words. I honestly feel the physical body limits the raw power within our souls. In each article I write, I try to include the quintessential understanding of what it means to be human. Being human means there is no greater flaw.
I've been having a great experience interacting with so many different people affected by Lyme Disease from around the world. Some of your stories really tear me up and others impress me with the faith they hold on to. It astounds me when I find myself completely relating to a person I've never met who lives halfway around the world.
We've had our first logo contest which ended up spawning an interview segment. The launch of the Tired of Lyme Android app was pretty exciting too! I'm still experimenting with that though. Currently, I've teamed up with Christina from Louisville, Kentucky who is raising money at her town's festival on December 3rd for those with Lyme Disease. I feel what she is doing is incredibly commendable!
I'm really having a lot of fun with the new comic Ralph and Joe and I promise there is more to come! I appreciate you guys taking the time to vote on the polls I have every so often. It definitely helps gather the truth and understand some aspects of Lyme better. I have a ton of ideas for the site but if ever have a suggestion, let me know!
Regarding my own personal fight against Lyme Disease, I'm doing pretty well. I was just positively diagnosed, this past October but I've been on a holistic treatment since early July. This goes to show that you don't need a positive diagnosis to start feeling better. As of recently, I have been herxing pretty badly and some days are just unbearable. I have to keep reminding myself it's all apart of the fight.
My promise to you all is to keep Tired of Lyme.com an honest reflection of my truest and honest understanding of Lyme Disease. I'm going through this fight right along side you so don't you ever feel alone or conjure a reason to give up.
Welcome to My Blog!
The LyBlog will focus on my personal battle with chronic Lyme disease, which includes updates, progress reports, and personal experiences.
