Got another really nice email from a reader and fellow Lyme sufferer the other day. I’m posting it below with his permission. His success is proof that while it can be an incredible challenge to overcome, you can dig yourself out of the exercise Lyme hole with dedication and commitment to yourself.
I’ve been following your blog since finding it a year ago, shortly after my own diagnosis with tick-borne diseases. I found your site during my frantic search to find a way to maintain my military career while I fight my illnesses. You demonstrate that life does not stop just because we are sick. Following your training advice and generally inspiring example, I was able to rebuild my ability to pass the physical fitness exams. For this I thank you. I wish I had some information to share to return the favor, but at the very least, I can tell you that I am extremely grateful for how you have shown me (and many others) a way to regain some control over this wild ride.
