April 30th – I have accepted The Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge to write daily about my disease. #HAWMC @wegohealth
Write a recap of my experience. What have I learned?
I wasn’t sure I would be able to write about Lyme disease for 30 days in a row. I’m glad I did this. I know more than I realized I know.
I have appreciated the feedback as well. Sometimes when I write things and no one writes back, I wonder . . . .
I’ve learned that there is a lot of educating to do in the general population about Lyme disease and its co-infections. Most people have heard about it and that’s about it. They don’t realize the severity of it, the complications it causes, or the fact that it can be fatal.
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month in the Commonwealth of Virginia (thank you Barbara Comstock!). I have decided to continue this blog for the next month (but taking weekends off) in hopes of giving more educational information about Lyme disease and its co-infections.
I hope you have enjoyed this and have benefited from the postings.
