A Daughter’s Experience of her Mom’s Lyme Disease

Read this poignant story of a teenager whose Mother was diagnosed with Lyme disease and how she overcame the difficulties of not understanding what was happening to her Mother. It is very heart warming.

"The whole experience was one of the hardest times of my life. However, my relationship with my mom is stronger than ever. She is my mother and my best friend. I go to her with everything I need to and she does the same with me. Our relationship is now a two-way street, which is more fulfilling than the more childish one I had as a teenager. I love being my mom’s friend and I love when she comes to me with happiness, sadness, confusion, and enlightenment. I will always take care of my mom and she will always take care of me. It’s an absolutely perfect way to be and the experience was hard, but nonetheless perfect."
