as many as 1 in 15 people have lyme and co. That's approximately 500M (half a billion) people worldwide.
a minscule percent of those people are on online forums or writing a blog about
their lyme disease. People treat, get better, and then move on with life.
I even did that myself the first time I put lyme into remission.
Then when I relapse I came crawling back with my tail between my legs. Now as I have lyme 90%+ back into remission once again, I've decided I will not do that again.
I'm consistently back on to share hope and advice. I'm not just going to use this place (the place that taught me so much about
getting well and helped keep my sanity during really dark times) only when I'm down and out.
But to stick around and give back how I can.
Edit: to give some perspective. I was listening to a podcast where a guy was being interviewed. The interview had NOTHING to do with lyme disease. But through the natural progression of the conversation of this 2hr+ podcast lyme disease happened to come up.
And the guest said "oh yea I had lyme disease" and the conversation continue for about
30 minutes on lyme disease. He had it for 3 years undiagnosed. He was in terrible shape. At one point bed ridden. Aand it took 3 years for him to fully recover. He shared his complete story. Once again the interview and podcast originally had nothing to do with lyme disease.
It just shows you how common it is and how people get, get better, and move on.
