Opportunity for Awareness: Infectiously Optimistic Lyme Disease Interview on BreakThru Radio

DJ Margaret of BreakThru Radio aired an interview with me this morning, March 28th, on optimism, Lyme Disease and finding hope in alternative medicine.

This would be a great opportunity to share your own stories. While I love being a voice for the Lyme community, I think it's important for the public to hear others' perspectives and unique experiences with this harrowing, complicated and controversial disease. The current statistics are staggering, and it has become undeniable that Lyme Disease is a rising epidemic. But it's opportunities like this that offer us a chance to put faces to the numbers, and remind the public that each addition to the growing Lyme Disease count is a valuable life that's been compromised. Awareness is currently our greatest hope for slowing down the growth and spread of this infectious disease.

So please, take a few minutes this morning to share your story through the comment section of DJ Margaret's post. But please don't forget to share how Lyme Disease has changed your life for the better- while this illness has the potential to turn a life entirely upside down, debilitate a body and shut innumerable doors, it also has the ability to reveal a whole new world, spark new relationships, and provide for unique and meaningful opportunities. Sometimes pain can be our greatest teacher, and it's darkest circumstances that encourage us to discover the light that we possess within.

Thank you DJ Margaret and BreakThru Radio, for helping us raise awareness, and for giving me the opportunity to share some optimism. I hope that this morning, this interview touched a few individuals and perhaps ignited a light inside of a few dark tunnels.

Remember, wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine.


  1. Hi, I found your blog link at the invisible illness team on etsy. I'm listening to the music on the link you have in the post. :) love it! Truly making my morning different and fun.
    Look forward to reading more of your posts, I don't have lyme, I have an aunt that does--but you know one chronic messed up thing is so much like another isn't it? Still all challenging.

  2. It's good to listen to radios giving such educational thoughts. Especially about infectious diseases, where people should be aware of.
