Lyme disease can make you feel really isolated, but you don’t have to deal with it on your own.
Reaching out to others just like you is often one of the most worthwhile steps you can take when managing Lyme disease.
There are a growing number of Australians affected by Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses; from patients to carers, friends and families. Lots of these people share their experiences through blogs and online support groups.
Reading other people’s stories and connecting online can be a rewarding part of having Lyme disease. There’s an entire community of people who understand what you are going through; it can be helpful to share experiences with people who just ‘get it’.
We’ve put together some resources that people with Lyme disease have found valuable in their journeys. Whether you’re after some guidance on talking to your family or doctor; you’d like to read some similar stories to yours or perhaps connect with others online – you’ve come to the right place.
