Hi, my name is Kayli, and I’m a Lymie. I’ve been symptomatic with Lyme and a host of other co-infections for eight years. Over time, I’ve learned a lot of practical things about Lyme Disease, treatment options, research, and finances. The practical stuff is important and helpful, but the heart stuff… Wow, learning to be okay in your heart is big too. The things I’ve learned about communication, rest, and perseverance have been life-changing, and helpful in every area of my life. I know there is still a lot of learning ahead, and I welcome it! I want to learn how to live life well in whatever circumstances I am in.
As time goes on, I’ve been connected with more and more people who have either just been diagnosed with Lyme Disease or believe that they have it and just aren’t sure what to do next. I love talking with these new friends. While I deeply want for no one to suffer through this disease, I’m grateful if I can help them as they begin their journey to health.
I have so many new friends seeking answers that I decided a blog would be a great place to collect all of my thoughts. I’m hoping that this will be a helpful start for Lymie people, as well as a helpful tool for friends and family to know what a Lymie person is up against.
Please view this blog as a “Lyme for Dummies” kind of page. I don’t intend on getting in-depth with the science. More so, I just want to provide some practical tips that have been helpful to me. No doubt, your doctor and your experiences will be different. If anything is helpful to you, fabulous. If not, I hope you find the answers you’re looking for somewhere else.
I absolutely invite you to comment with questions. I’ll either respond directly to you or use it as a launching pad for a future post.
Blessings to you!
