I want to welcome you to my website and I hope that you will benefit from the information that I have to share with you!
More than a decade ago!
My story begins more than a decade ago when what had been a very normal, stable life became a long, difficult journey of chronic illness. I had a very happy childhood with only the usual scrapes and bruises. I grew up in a small community of about 5000 people, went to public school, and attended the University of Wyoming, receiving a degree in Medical Technology. I married my college sweetheart and we moved with the Air Force to California and after a few years, we had two healthy sons and began our lives together as a very happy family.
During the years since then, I became chronically ill with Lyme Disease and it’s co-infections. My immune system was destroyed and I developed an autoimmune condition. Every day was a struggle, especially not knowing what was causing my illness. I began to think I would never be able to feel normal again.
I decided to make it my mission to gather as much information as I could about chronic illness, knowing that I would eventually be able to piece together the puzzle and get to the bottom of what was causing me to be so sick. Finally, after about 13 years, I was correctly diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I had suspected parasites but never once thought it could be Lyme Disease. Over the years, I have gained so much knowledge about this illness. I have met many people suffering from the same issues and they are desperate for information and anything that will help them feel better. With all of this knowledge and much trial and error, I have been able to take control of my health and get my life back. I am working once again, I am able to exercise and I am able to enjoy the hobbies that were once such an integral part of my life.
Lyme is my passion!
Lyme can be a very debilitating disease. It is an extremely complicated disease and difficult to diagnose. It presents itself differently in every person such that the symptoms in one person can be very different in another person. For this reason, it is often misdiagnosed or even missed completely. Because I have witnessed so many people suffering with this disease, it is my passion to help others any way I can to understand their illness and share the knowledge I have gained with them. I believe that my journey with Lyme disease has given me a purpose and that purpose is to share all that I have encountered and found helpful to me.
How I can Help!
The goal of this website is not only to share my journey with Lyme Disease, but to be able to help the readers gain a more thorough understanding of the many aspects of chronic illness and the different techniques that are used in the healing process.
More importantly, I strive to give hope to all those believing that they may never have a normal, healthy life again. There is so much that can be done to help one feel better and I am living proof of it.
