Lyme Disease Awareness
Symptoms of Lyme disease are similar to the flu so nothing that screams Lyme and it is a disease that is hard to get diagnosed. Patients know that something is wrong with them, but many doctors don't find this until the patient is extremely ill.
There are many Lyme disease awareness groups and there is a lot of information about this illness, but many doctors will say that this disease doesn't exist or is easy to treat. Let me say from experience that is not true in some cases.
I am thankful that our family doctor is caring and constantly learning things that he can do to aid my daughter in leading a fairly normal life. There are still many days that she is just suffering all day and that she barely feels like getting up, but she is still fighting and she is trying to bring more awareness to the disease.
I ask that all who read this wear a Lyme disease ribbon today!
