Who Is There For You?

I read on a lymies facebook status "People get sick of you being sick." It's totally true and you find out real fast who your real friends are when you are chronically sick. We get sick of being sick!! I am sure a lot of the time people don't know what to do or what to say, especially if it an on going sickness like most people with lyme disease. Going into remission is a loooong process, it can take years, and usually does! It's sad to me that people I thought would be here for me haven't been. I know people have busy lives and have their own issues they have to deal with which is why I don't expect much. Most lymies just want a phone call, text, email, asking how you are or asking if you want to get together. Of course we don't have energy to be too active so for a lymie to hang out usually means renting a movie or going to one or laying low doing something like a bon fire. We really don't expect a lot, just want support and to feel like your friends still want to see you. It is a very lonely disease and hard to get through and we need all the support we can get. I am very thankful for all of the awesome Lyme friends I have made, they totally understand how I feel physically and mentally and I would be lost with out them! Thank you to all of the people that have been there for me!


  1. Yes, you are so right! I am finally in remission after 4 years and only have 1 same friend that I had before I got sick. People don't want to be reminded of how hard it can be. A text goes a long way!

  2. I'm so foggy and having a hard time articulating but I wanted you to know I am reading and KNOW what you are saying. Thank you!
