Lyme disease is still little understood and yet highly indiscriminate in whom it targets, with symptoms ranging from mild and treatable to frighteningly severe. Sharing your story is a powerful way to connect with others suffering from Lyme and to help create awareness about the realities of living with Lyme so that we may find better solutions.

It’s your story. Tell it how you like. Not sure where to start or what to share? See our current Lyme Disease Stories or consider these conversation starters:

  • What advice might you give someone else that may be battling Lyme?
