While at my first week of treatment at Sierra Integrative this month, I was able to meet two of my lymie friends in person. I originally came across Lauren, the Lyme Pixie’s InstaGram account back in March of this year, and soon after I met Kim the Lyme Lady online, who is currently going through treatment. They gave me some more in depth information about the clinic, and were a great support system for me before and during my trip out to Reno.
On Thursday of that week, Lauren made the trip over to meet Kim and I in person. It was such an inspiring and hopeful feeling having her there because she is now Lyme FREE! Lauren was telling us that while going through treatment, she created this super hero persona – “The Lyme Pixie”. This helped her get through each day and stay strong. The past two and half years have been a huge battle for me, physically and emotionally, and I struggle each day to find the strength to continue fighting. For this reason, I decided to create my own super hero – “The Lethal Lymie”! I had already named my journey “Operation Kill Lyme” so I thought “The Lethal Lymie” was very appropriate!!!
