May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month

Hello all,
May is lyme disease awareness month and because this disease has such a huge impact on my life i decided this year i was gonna do whatever i could to bring a little bit of attention to it. I have been sick 3 and a half years, diagnosed with lyme 3 years ago and i have spent the last 3 years trying to find any treatment that will work to squash this bug out of me. I had never heard of lyme before i was told i had it and i didnt understand at first how i even got it because i am not an outdoors kinda girl and i never remember a tick or a rash. I never would have guessed one tiny little tick could cause me so many problems. i'm only 24 and i have to take 19 different medications a day and go 5 days a week to the hospital to receive iv antibiotics. I had to drop out of college before finishing my degree and i have had to sit back and watch as all my friends graduated,got married, bought houses and had children and it sucks! There is so little known about lyme and right now prevention is the only sure-fire way of staying healthy.
I have somehow managed to talk some of the amazing designers at kjoistudios to help me in a blog hop for the whole month of may. each week a new outdoors themed kit will be posted for free with a fact about the disease. Please take some time to actually read the facts when you snag our freebies! Also please consider making a donation for lyme disease research( link is on the right side of my blog down towards bottom.) Enjoy the kits and keep yourself, your family and your pets tick free!



FACT: the doctors who are responsible for making decisions in diagnosis guidelines also work
for insurance companies across the us. some of these doctors make as much as $600/ hour in
"consultanting" fees, advising insurance companies of ways to avoid having to pay for
lyme-related costs.
FACT: there are almost a dozen coinfections u can get when bitten by a tick, each one can make it more difficult to treat the lyme disease, make sure your doctor tests for those coinfections too!

stay tuned all month for more freebies!
