I'm not sure if I should post about Lyme on Facebook or not.
I know I have alienated some friends by doing so.
On the other hand, (one post in particular, which included a video) was acknowledged by several friends, and even shared. My friend B. commented that this video was "eye-opening."
I know that one or two members of this forum choose not to post about Lyme on their pages.
I also struggle with the issue that perhaps I'm trying to "prove" to people I know that my disease is real, when in actuality, sometimes the harder you try to prove something, the more you end up not being believed.
The other dilemma I have is that a bunch of Lymies, essentially people you've never talked to, will try to "friend" you. Not sure I want THAT many "friends." I know you don't have to friend someone back, but I've heard FB is hard on people who don't get a reciprocal offer.
Then again, I've also met a few nice people from one or two of the FB Lyme groups.
To post or not to post, that is the question . . . . ?
