I wish I had something good to say today.
I wish I could say:
I feel great,
I'm not worried,
all is well,
I wish I could,
but I'd be lying.
Today's a hard day:
Since getting sick,
I love have been diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease
and, as friends around me continue to suffer,
the more frustrated I become.
I am not helpless,
but it seems that way.
It seems like there's nothing I can do.
It seems like this disease kills everything.
It seems like there's no way out.
It seems like there's no hope.
Couple that with the myth that Lyme Disease is "easy to treat and hard to catch"
or that "Lyme doesn't exist in __________ (insert your state here),"
it's enough to drive a girl crazy
(if you let it).
rather than fall into a black hole,
I am working on two things:
support and awareness...
Support for my friend Juliana,
who continues to fight for her life,
and awareness by contacting Anderson Cooper .
Hopefully, if enough people reach out, this health crises will get the attention it deserves.
Make a difference.

As Margaret Mead said:
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
