Our heart was saddened when we learned that the Bachelor alum Kelley Flanagan has finally discovered why her health has been declining—Lyme disease. As anyone in our community can attest, it is bittersweet when we find someone who understands this awful disease.

The Daily Mail Reports

The 29-year-old attorney from North Barrington, Illinois was a contestant on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelorette in 2019, finishing in fifth place.

She took to Instagram on Monday, revealing she, ‘just got some not so good news’ in the caption of her post.

‘I know I’ve shared so many of my health tips and tricks, have always told you that my body is super sensitive and I’ve always knew something was a little bit off,’ she added.

Flanagan said the diagnosis was both, ‘a blessing and a curse,’ a blessing because now she can, ‘target why I feel off so often,’ and a curse because this means, ‘several different lifestyle changes will have to happen along with, ‘extensive research on how to help/hopefully cure this!’

‘I know this is going to be tough for me seeing what my brothers have gone through mentally and physically but I’m going to put so much of my time and energy into figuring this out and combatting this. Love all of you and let’s take on this new journey,’ she concluded in her caption.
