Chronicles of our Journey with Lyme Disease
After returning from the fun outing of climbing behind the waterfall in order to jump into the pool of water below, Robin started running a fever and was not able to participate in the evening activities. She rested and upon waking, discovered a rash on her face and abdomen. The trip was almost over. Everyone was tired and ready to come home. Robin pulled it together, packed up and was ready when their airport transportation arrived.
She had an amazing time while in Honduras. I wasn't with her, so I can only recount the stories that have been told to me. I believe these pictures tell the story much better than words--
After this trip, though, her life slowly began to change. I want--I need--to share her story with everyone I can reach through this blog, Facebook and Pinterest. I have learned in the last two years, that it is the story of many people. It must be told so that those who are suffering as she has, can get help before it is too late.
Robin has Chronic Lyme Disease. In the weeks ahead, I will share our journey. It is a spiritual journey. It has been a long, hard journey. And the journey is far from over!
