I had an idea to write an essay about how grateful I am for my body. Sometimes we forget that our body is working non-stop to help us get better. It might not be as successful as we'd like, but it works around the clock and never gives up. Most of our immune systems are completely taxed, but they continue to seek out and eliminate invaders.
When I feel run down or am in pain it's easy to blame my body, but instead I should blame the Lyme disease. This essay is a reminder to be kind to you body and give it all the love and help you can.
My essay was published on The Mighty. You can read it though the link below:
My Body Is My Partner Against Lyme Disease

"I came to see that what constitutes strength is not just muscle or will. It can also include the most desperate vulnerability, the saddest heartache, the lightest, sweetest laughter." - Brenda Shaughnessy
I'm Kerry and I was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in 2016. This is a positive space for those of us coping with Lyme disease and other invisible illnesses.
