Lyme Resources

A couple of weeks ago, I began sharing my experience with Lyme disease to lend my voice to the efforts of Lyme Awareness week. As I mentioned before, every Lyme fighter has a unique story that is also also overwhelmingly similar to the experience of other Lyme fighters – especially when it comes down to the fact that it takes most people an average of 2 years to get a diagnosis.

I’ve tried to break down Lyme in simple terms for the average person, beginning here, with more resources below.

Why Lyme is a Rich Man’s Disease

  • The folks at Lymeology  (Winners of the Best Lyme Disease Blog Award this year!) explain why it’s so damned expensive to diagnose and treat Lyme.

Best Lyme blogs to follow:


  • Stephen, a blogger over at “Confined to Success” gives a list of the most helpful Lyme blogs to follow. I don’t need to reinvent the wheel!

See It Through 
by Edgar Albert Guest
When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!
