We are just about half-way through Lyme Disease Awareness Month! If you have been watching my lyme awareness videos, you have learned that many Lyme disease patients do not respond to a conventional 30-days of antibiotic treatment.
I have explained some of those reasons why, and how incredibly difficult it is to find effective alternative treatment when this happens.
Lyme disease can take a debilitating toll on the body with Exhaustion, pain, and anxiety.
➡ Many Lyme patients are unable to work, drive, or take care of themselves, resulting in a dire need for caregivers and financial support.
➡ Patients who were unjustly left undiagnosed and untreated face YEARS of recovery.
➡ Unfortunately, Lyme disease is not considered a “disabling condition” according to the US government, making it very difficult to receive disability payments.
💚 If you know someone with Lyme, BELIEVE them when they say their symptoms are debilitating 💚
➡ Getting out of the house takes extreme effort, and they are probably hiding their symptoms so they can appear as “normal” a possible. Lyme is sometimes called an “Invisible Illness” or “Invisible Disability”
❤ Thank you for your patience and understanding for those who have chronic Lyme disease! ❤
