  • “I know what Lyme has done to you and how narrowly you have survived thus far.”

    I read an essay today that made me feel normal — and even slightly hopeful — for the first time in years (it’s been a really hard few years).

    It’s a little long, but beautifully written as an exercise by Lyme survivor Jennifer Crystal in the style of the great James Baldwin, so worth the extra few minutes. I found it powerful to read it aloud.

    If you are chronically ill with Tick Borne Illnesses or know someone who is, I’m putting this on your Must Read List:

    “Letter to a Lyme patient, written in the style of a famous essay by James Baldwin.”

    (From the lymedisease.org blog: Touched By Lyme.)
