May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and protests are taking place all over the world.
At times, it is kind of comforting to know that I’m not alone in this fight, but watching this video breaks my heart. I don’t personally know any of these people, (but I actually kinda do! My friend decimawho) but I know all too well what they are going through..And I hate it.
Knowing that there are thousands and millions of people going through the same, horrible crap that I go through. It’s just not right. It makes me sad. But I’m trying think, they don’t want me to be sad, just like I don’t want people to feel sad when they hear my story. I want people to take any sadness they may feel and turn it into motivation and inspiration- to help fight Lyme and tick-borne illnesses- to fight for our medical bills to even be somewhat covered, not even all of it, just some; to fight back against those who don’t believe in Chronic Lyme Disease or Lyme disease at all;
As much as I want things to change for the better, I hope it doesn’t occur because those at the top of healthcare and pharmaceutical industries become personally affected by tick-borne illnesses.
