So you have a friend with chronic Lyme disease?

I came across this today and I think it’s accurate, brilliant and funny:

So you have a friend or family member with chronic Lyme disease? A guide to understanding their struggle

I can agree with every single one of the points, which I am certain are also true for many other chronic debilitating illnesses. I feel very blessed because I believe those closest to me understand all of it and as a result are extremely supportive and loving.

While reading I couldn’t help but think about my life prior to diagnosis and about all the undiagnosed lymies out there, to whom most of these points apply as well but who don’t even know it yet themselves. Imagine all of that, but the official line is “nothing is wrong with you”, so you aren’t entitled to any of it.

ps. I’m having a happy sunny day. 🙂
