My life Living with Lyme:

Living with an invisible disease is hard to explain to anyone who has never faced its daily struggles. I'm grateful to be at a point in my life where I can enjoy the things I'm passionate about but it didn't happen overnight. I was bit by a tick carrying Lyme disease and other infections in February 2013. It took four years to get a diagnosis. 

 

Lyme is called the "Great Imitator" because its symptoms can mimic a number of other diseases including fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis. It can target different organs in the body including the brain, muscles and joints, and the heart. There's a lot we still don't know about it. Watch my half-hour special below to learn more.
