Twitter Lyme Voice

My first impressions when I heard about Twitter is, that I don’t get it. It seemed stupid and a big waste of time. What it the point of twitter, besides letting stalkers know where you are. Time past and I forgot about the huge technology craze on the World Wide Web. One day my dad asked me how to set up Twitter, because a bussiness associate requested him. I rolled my eyes and went on there. I signed myself up so I could tell my dad how to do it. He went on there for awhile, got bored and went back to facebook. lol

By me signing up, I got hooked. I started following a bunch of celebrity, venting on there when I was upset and talking about my causes. This includes of course Lyme Disease. This is a great platform to get Lyme Disease out there, so I’m now hooked on Twitter. Why?!! lol. It really is a good place to have a voice. For someone who hated Twitter since it came out of the wood work, I completely recommand it!

Check me out on there! And lets get Lyme Disease out there people!

Lyme Blues

Saw my LLMD today with my mom. So discouraged right now. She found alot of viruses got re-activated in my body because of the Lyme. The doctor also found that I have a stomach parasite, which would explain the extreme weight loss. I feel like I’m such a hot mess right now. I have to take more meds too, and will also have to do penicillin shots 3 times a week. When does this get easier?

This has been such a long haul, and it seems to be getting worse in different ways. I wish I had an end date to all of this, so I know when my life starts up again.

Ben Stiller, The Lazy Lyme Activist

I went wikipedia to see what the site says about Lyme Disease and in it, it lists the celebrities who have it. The most famous out of all of them is Ben Stiller and yet I have never heard of him having Lyme Disease. With all of the celebrity that he has, he chooses to keep this disease private. He has the opportunity to help and change the way Lyme disease is handled, and yet he does nothing. I’m so upset and frusterated with these lazy celebrities who have Lyme and choose to do nothing. There are so many of us who try to get Lyme disease out there in the public eye, but we get shotdown or are left unnoticed!  I wish I had his email to give you guys this time, but I couldn’t find it. You can still contact Karen Allen on my previous blog about her. If someone has his email please pass it onto me, so I can post it on here. If I do get it, please be respectful in the letter.

I wish I had better news than this, kinda depressing. Stuff like this makes me feel so discouraged. 😦 I wish we had a celebrity who would fight for us.

Take care!
