My Lyme Story Part I: An introduction
Dr. Becca Brinkmann
is a researcher and blogger about health and Lyme. Her writings come from her own battle with the disease. She has a PhD in communication and has taught in higher education for over 12 years. When she squeezes time away from being a mom, she loves to write and teaches communication courses part time. She lives on a small family farm in Western PA with her husband Matt and three children.
I decided to start an educational health blog about my experience with Lyme Disease (For my journey to a diagnosis, click here or visit "My Lyme Story Part II: When all hell broke loose"). My family and friends have encouraged me to take on this task because since my diagnosis, I have been able to help others who were chronically ill with no diagnosis, or with a wrong diagnosis.
My hope is to help others who are searching for answers. When you visit my site, I want you to feel like you have a friend who understands the pain and suffering that you have been going through. My goal is to help you find your Hope to Health. This is a journey and your health will not return overnight (although I sure do wish for this). Recovering your immune system takes time and endurance, but you CAN do this!!!
Much love & healing hope sent your way,
