Cassidy is a college student from a small town in Maryland. In April of 2012, she began feeling severe neck, back, and shoulder pain. After tons of doctors appointments, multiple misdiagnoses, and many prescriptions, she was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease, almost six months later.
She’s tried almost every treatment in the book—from oral antibiotics, to homeopathic herbs, to intravenous antibiotics—and now she is on several Chinese herbs. Some days she feels pretty good, but others are worse.
She’s doing better than she was, but these past (almost) 8 years have not been easy. Cassidy has had to deal with chronic fatigue, tremors, hot flashes, cognitive issues and even periodic paralysis. She missed most of high school and has been fighting her way through college. Yet, she knows that one day, though, her Lyme will be under control.
Until then, she’ll be here, sharing her stories, remedies, and tips on living with Lyme!
