Our son's journal reflects the physical, social and mental toll Lyme takes

Our son’s journal reflects the physical, social and mental toll Lyme takes

Tonight we were at our son’s baseball game. His first year playing little league is significant because there were springs and summers he was too sick to leave the house. Playing sports was simply not an option.

The journey we have been on as a family has addressed so much more than Lyme disease – friendship, community, depression, addiction, parenthood, anxiety, dreams, family legacies…..

I am grateful for everything we have learned, but sitting here tonight, watching the game, what I appreciate is the health of our family, and the well-being we have worked so hard to achieve.
