This blog is about my journey since contracting Lyme Disease. I’m calling it “A Race Against Lyme.”
It’s about education. It’s about understanding what this disease is and what it does to an individual and their family and friends.
It’s about offering hope to those who suffer in silence. It’s my diary.
It’s about my emotional and physical journey the last 16 months and becoming chronic. Subsequent entries will also detail my upcoming journey and progress through a relatively new treatment of Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Transplant which I hope to undergo this Thursday or Friday.
The idea of a blog stemmed from reading others journy’s and struggles with this horrible disease. As I searched for new treatments and the miracle cure, I came across a few other blogs and found them inspirational. They gave me hope that there is treatment out there that will make me feel better, and return me to a life that I used to call normal, albeit knowing there is no cure. The best I can hope for is an elongated remission.
Thank you to my husband of 27 years who has always stood by me and encouraged me to write this. To Nancy Real who’s comment on my Facebook page last year encouraged me to share my journey. To Penny Trask who who’s daughter suffered for 17 years and was instrumental in helping me cope with the ravages of this disease. Also to all my numerous friends and family who have stood by my side and offered their outstanding support to both my husband and me.
