Lyme Bloggers

Lyme Blog newspaperEveryone has a story. I have been told many times that I should write mine. Unfortunately, my Lyme Disease is quirky in a way that I can’t seem to make myself write. It has somehow affected my ability to concentrate in just that way. Or maybe it’s the social anxiety that it causes that prevents me from writing to an audience as large as the internet. On the other hand, the internet is my playground. It is where I get to go to keep my overly active mind entertained when my body is too exhausted to move. At some points in my Lyme symptom cycle, I am able to sit for hours & gather information.

Recently someone joked that everyone with Lyme plans to write a book. I have certainly considered it, once my exhausted body can keep up with my over-active mind. I started thinking, though, about all the Lyme blogs that I was familiar with. I’m always in awe of people who are capable of writing on extremely technical topics, or developing recipes, or having the consistency to chronicle their progress every day.

During one of computer browsing peaks I decided to take a look around at the Lyme Blogs out there. I thought, “If I can’t blog myself, maybe I can provide a source for Lyme blogs.” What I found was amazing. Many people blogging for many different reasons. What I created is one cohesive feed of every Lyme patient (currently suffering or fully healed) that I could find.

What you will find to the left is the aggregated feed showing the most recent posts of this collection of Blogs. What you will find on the right is a list of the Blogs included in the feed.

If you are currently experiencing or have experienced Lyme Disease & have a blog or YouTube channel, I would love to include you. Please send me a link on Twitter.

    I enjoyed reading your blog. My daughter who is 12 has had Lyme for 3 years now and counting. We have had many set backs in her health, but we are hoping to move forward and to one day be “Lyme free”. Thank you for your blog and the information it shares =) I have attached a youtube video of my daughter if anyone is interested.
    http://youtu.be/hG7-8VU7NmU

    • Thanks for the comment Yvonne. I have subscribed to your YouTube channel & included it in my list on the Lyme Bloggers page so that we can all follow your daughter’s progress. I, too, believe that it is completely possible to be “Lyme free” & wish that for your daughter. Sending good thoughts & prayers to you. 🙂

  • Sara Spark says:

    Hi Kelly,
    Thank you for this wonderful list of blogs! I can’t wait to browse through them. Please add mine (link above) when you have the chance.
    Thanks again!

  • What a fantastic resource, thank you so much! I am awed by the online lyme community, a courageous and positive lot. I’ve added you to my new blog’s lyme links, and hope you’ll do the same.

    • Sorry it took me so long to take care of this. You know how it is. 🙂 I have added you to my list of Lyme bloggers & also added one of your articles to my list of useful Lyme Links. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!!!!

    A petition is being circulated to get President Obama to invalidate the outrageous IDSA guidelines which have severely
    harmed many thousands of people. Information about this petition and how to get your signature added can be found at:
    http://lymediseaseresource.com/wordpress Now click on: Jenna’s Lyme blog
    This blog will route you to a petition that resides at Whitehouse.gov petition.
    We need as many signatures as possible as quickly as possible. There is too much at stake to fall short and not correct this
    grave injustice.

  • Anna says:

    Hi Kelly,

    Great site. How do we get our blogs added to your list?

  • Louise says:

    Hello, could you add my blog to the list? Or my latest post to the feed on the left?

    Thanks for all your hard work in collecting all these blogs together into one great resource!

    Louise

    • Absolutely. I’m in the middle have to come up with a new way to create this page now that Google Reader is being shut down, so it may be off & on for the next few months, but you’re there & I promise not to lose you in the transition. Ha.

  • Jenna Dredge says:

    This is a great list. I would love to have my blog included on it. Thanks for all of your hard work to make this possible.

  • Mary says:

    Hi – I lost 8 years to lyme.

    After reading about what others went through with Lyme it’s good to know I’m not alone. I just posted my story on http://ihavelymedisease.blogspot.com/

  • Hannah Heath says:

    Thank you so much for providing this service! I’ve found lots of wonderful resources. I’m so happy that my blog made the list. I really appreciate it! Hope you have a great week.

  • DeeLynn says:

    I NEED HELP!!
    I am going through late-stage chronic neurological/psychiatric Lyme.

    I need to talk to someone who has had the symptoms I’m so DESPERATE!!!!
    Someone please reach out and try to help.

    My Lyme disease progressed very quick.
    My main complaint are my mental issues. The biggest problems being psychosis (feeling out of touch with reality), major anxiety problems, sexual problems, intrusive thoughts, and it all feels like a big pressure in my head.

    I am currently taking a treatment plan. I do believe the symptoms have worsened, and am hoping that is from a herx.

    Has anyone else gone through these complications————did you ever get better?

  • Arnold says:

    Hi there, sorry I don’t have Twitter or Facebook (have to prioritise the time I have awake) and wondering if you could include my blog 🙂 all the best, and well done on collecting all these other blogs!!!

    All the best,
    Arn

  • Greetings! Your site helped me receive some much-needed information when I was in the early stages of figuring out my Lyme disease. I’m 8 months into proper treatment now and though I still have a long way to go, the progress has been very hopeful. I wanted to share my new book with you, “When Life Hands You Lemons, Check For Lymes,” a graphic novel memoir about my experience with the disease. The book has received favorable reviews from sites like Comics Should Be Good and Comics Grinder. My hope for the book is that it will help bring Lyme awareness into the popular culture and will be comfortingly relatable to those affected by the disease.

    Best,

    • Glad to hear you are getting the help you need & that things are improving! I’m happy to share the link to your book here, but maybe you have a blog that I can subscribe to for my Lyme Bloggers list, too?

  • Kerry H says:

    Hello,

    This is the best resource for newly diagnosed! I’m so grateful I found it. I’m wondering if you could add my blog “body mind lyme” to your list.

    The link is http://www.bodymindlyme.com/blog.

    Thanks,

    Kerry

    • Sorry it took so long to get back to you! Sometimes I’m on, and sometimes I’m just not. You know how it is. 🙁

      You’re blog has been added, though! Thank you so much for sending it along. It looks great, BTW!

      Good look on your journeys & thanks so much for putting it all out there so other people can see. 🙂

  • Kerry H says:

    Grateful! Thank you so much for putting this together!

  • So glad to have found your site. I started a website for parents whose kid(s) have Lyme because I found it hard to get all the info I wanted in one place. http://www.ParentsofLymeKids.com
