Maybe He’s Born With It, Maybe It’s Lyme Disease (the full story)

Thank you all so much for the support I have received after sharing my Lyme story. On days where it hurts too much to move, it is heartening to know that something positive is coming from my experiences. To make sharing this simpler, I am re-posting both episodes in a single blog entry. Over the course of these two podcast episodes I detail 23 years of diagnostic confusion before discovering Lyme, the difficulty in receiving treatment, the controversy surrounding Lyme tests and what it is like to live with chronic pain.
