Inspired by @chrondetermined asking for some positive stories about #Lymedisease, I am thinking about the many ways our experience of Lyme and Bartonella infections made our lives better. Our whole family is healthier and stronger because of the diet and lifestyle changes we have made together. We live more simply, and truly understand the value of a ‘good day’. We are more supportive of each other. We know what really is important. Most significantly, we have become much more compassionate people than we were before Lyme disease entered our lives.
