This is Lyme in 280 characters AKA the top 10 Tweets about Lyme disease:
1. I’m never looking at poppyseed muffins the same.
2. “Houston, we’ve had a problem!”
3. Responses like this are all too common with Lyme disease. But until the world at large sees Lyme as being real, real solutions probably won’t be offered.
4. The world looks a little different after contracting Lyme.
5. After Lyme, it is important to understand that your priorities have changed. Simple tasks are now challenging, and challenging tasks are often now impossible. All we can do is appreciate the moments when we have energy and supportive friends.
6. What you see isn’t what you get with Lyme.
7. Out of order. Out of control. Out of energy. Out of answers…
8. And that is enough.
9. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing when spending time outdoors. Cover up as much as you can, use insect repellent, and always check your family and pets for ticks. Ticks are small, but their impact can be life altering.
10. Although a bullseye rash is a telltale sign of Lyme, not everyone gets or notices a rash after being bitten by a tick. Read up on common symptoms and talk to a Lyme literate doctor if you suspect you or a loved one has been bitten. Acting quickly is the best thing you can do!
