Lyme Disease is a scary Pandemic!

Lyme Disease is one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the country and most people don’t know anything about it.  Everyone has heard of the Zika virus but that is nothing compared to Lyme Disease.  Look at the difference in cases and funding and remember the estimate number of cases of 329,000 is based on reported cases.  It’s estimated closer to two million.  

Lyme vs Zika funding

The NIH has a larger budget for Headaches than Lyme Disease and the funny thing is most people with Lyme Disease have headaches and migraines.

There are more cases of Lyme Disease reported each year then HIV, AIDS and Breast Cancer yet theses disease get a lot more funding and support.  So the only way to get more attention on Lyme disease to hopefully get more funding is for us Lymies to continue to speak out and blog and get others to share our message.  

Here are links to some of my May Awareness Month blogs for you to share.     Just copy and paste the links or share this entire page.
