Holiday Guide for Lyme Patients 2016


Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy whatever it is that you celebrate at this time of year. As a Lyme patient myself, I know how hard holidays can be for Lyme patients or anyone who is chronically ill. Despite all the beautiful decorations, gift giving, family get togethers, the holidays can be a reminder to many of the loneliness, isolation and pain that we live in daily.

We hope that you will find a way to celebrate and not be alone for the holidays this year, even if it’s just spending time online with our online Lyme community. Remember to The Blanket Fort Party Holidays Seasoning Gathering on Facebook on December 25th and join in some, “non-Lyme” fun and socializing. These questions will still be active on December 25th too so join us in some distraction from the “L” word!

We can also reflect on some of the things we are grateful for in 2016. I want to thank everyone who supported me this year and who allowed me the honor of supporting them. I was blessed with yet another beautiful granddaughter and spending lots of time with Raya and Isabella. Please tell us below what you are grateful for this year.

Mostly I just want to say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy Hanukkah to everyone, Lyme patients, their families, our caregivers and the health care professionals that are trying to help us,  and that I pray hard every day that someday we all have a cure, a real cure and we can all get back to living life pain free. Love you all and stay strong fellow warriors.
