Lyme Disease

I currently deal with chronic health issues from 2 bouts of Lyme Disease, which has changed my immune system, energy levels, and continues to cause joint pain.

I've always been ridiculously fit. I'm now going on 56 years old, and am a single mom after being married for 23 years. And over the past 2 years, I've gained 25 lbs (on a 5 foot frame this is a lot of weight), blood pressure level has gone up, fatigue is at an all time high, and my memory is suffering.

This is my chance to take back my health! This Health Journey will make me be accountable--it will chronicle my journey to get back to the best me I can be physically, mentally and emotionally.

Looking forward to starting my own Health Journey starting today!
