 In Faces of Lyme

Before my 18th birthday I was active, trying to finish up high school, had a job, and was a very good student. Christmas day was when I went from able bodied person to disabled. All of my major joints were profoundly swollen and the only thing I could do was sit in a wheelchair, twitch, and cry. I can’t imagine how scary that must have been for my mother, seeing her baby become unresponsive, completely zoned out, and in a state of such emotional devastation. Little did we know that was the last day I would ever be a normal young lady. Five months later I will be starting treatment at a high tech, German practicing facility, with a treatment timeline of two years. There is hope and light at the end of my journey, but first I have to battle the war inside of me.
