Well, ever since I started to learn about Lyme disease, the whole situation made me furious (and I know everyone here feels the same). I wanted to get involved in awareness events, but I either didn't have the time or energy, or I was too afraid of people thinking I was crazy (I have a relative who is a Dr and doesn't believe in Lyme).
Well- today, someone I know on facebook who also has Lyme sent me a trailer to UOS, with a link that allows you to send it to your friends, in support of the cause. Well, I did it! I sent it to almost all my friends. I started hyperventilating in the middle, and had to take a break, but I did it. It's not much, but it's a step forward for me. I need to stop being afraid of what other people will think, and start trying to get good information out there.
Next thing I want to do is write an article for my school newspaper, but I have too much brain fog and not enough time for that right now.
