Tuttle’s Letter to the TBDWG — Madison Area Lyme Support Group (Blog Post Share)

This is something everyone should read.

“There are rumors that Dr. Eugene Shapiro has been selected to participate as a member of the Tick-borne Disease Working Group. Shapiro has spent a career discrediting the sick and disabled along with the courageous clinicians attempting to help these patients as he coauthored the deplorable Lancet article referenced below. There is no place for Shapiro on the TBDWG as he is a disgrace to the medical profession.” Continue reading “Tuttle’s Letter to the TBDWG — Madison Area Lyme Support Group (Blog Post Share)”

Activism: Fighting for Lyme Disease Awareness.

Activism.

ac·tiv·ism
ˈaktəˌvizəm/
noun
  1. the policy or action of using vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change.

For many, the words “activism”, or “activist” conjure up memories of the 1960’s, with peace marches, love-ins, and racial equality at the forefront of most protests. As many know, however, we have a much richer history than the activism of the 1960’s. Our country, and in fact many throughout the world, were built on the results of activism. The selfless acts of protest, picketing, and standing up for each other, has always been the way to get things done, despite the injury, loss of life, or jail time one might face.

When you just…can’t.

I’ve been waiting for Spring. I live in New England. Right now, we are having “Second Autumn”. It’s like real Autumn, only it comes after Spring. It’s cold damp, and rainy. It is a pain inducing nightmare.

I have calls to make, emails to write, I have to go out later, and I just want to curl up in a ball, on the couch, with my dog, and a blanket.

I can’t keep my brain focused, even with my meds properly ingested this morning, and I just don’t care.

Any “normal” person would be complaining of a 8 on their pain scale, and would probably want to die. I am not normal. If the pain scale went from 1-20, instead of 1-10, I’d probably be at a 13.

I’m only sitting here writing this, to keep going. To make it through the day. To resist the urge to lie down. I really do have to go out later, it is not optional.

The one bright spot, is that something I ordered came today. I can’t tell you what it is just yet, but keep watching for updates. This is something I hope to be able to share with you all in the next few days.

Till then, carry on my warrior friends, better days are coming. ❤ J
