What is Lyme Disease:
I used to enjoy playing sports and the outdoors before I became sick. Then I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. I lost 6 years to this debilitating disease, because most doctors believe Lyme is rare in Texas.
Signs and Symptoms:
I've seen over 30 doctors since 2005 and every one had a different diagnosis. A Lyme literate doctor finally diagnosed me with chronic systemic Lyme infection. Lyme changed my life forever -psychologically, physically and emotionally.
Prevention:
My child was diagnosed with Autism Lyme! A walk in the park, and a tick-bite changed his life. Don't let tick-borne illnesses ruin your family memories of the great outdoors. Protect yourself!
Upcoming Event:
