Psssst. It’s me. The Lyme Whisperer. I wrote this blog to share a secret. Come closer.
Don’t worry, I don’t bite. Ticks bite. So here goes. Lyme sufferers are not crazy. Their bizarre and mysterious symptoms are not all in their head. And Chronic Lyme disease is real. Now, whatever you do, don’t not go around telling everyone that you know.
I am a 39-year old Mom, certified Nutritionist, Vice President, runner, community volunteer, and blogger. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2010. I awoke one morning and angrily scolded Borrelia, the bacteria that causes Lyme. I insisted that she was not going to keep me from accomplishing anything. I defied “her” that morning by verbally taking the upper hand, and I’ve been defiantly “whispering” to her ever since.
This blog chronicles many of those “conversations.” It provides a glimpse into life with Lyme with hope and humor, using analogies inspired by Snow White, The Chronicles of Narnia, Alice in Wonderland, The Avengers, Transformers, A Perfect Storm, Gone With the Wind, Harry Potter, World War Z, The Polar Express and more. The reader will discover blog posts inspired by Huffington Post articles as well as by book authors including Mark Hyman M.D. and Katina Makris, Certified Intuitive Healer and Homeopath. Other experts join in the fun with interviews, including Nathan Morris, M.D., Mark Swanson, N.D., and Kelly Heim Ph.D.
