#96: Karen Smith – Red Shoe Day – Remembering those lost to Lyme disease

In 2009 Karen came down with a case of Bells Palsy, after months of ineffective treatment and trips to specialists, a suggestion that her symptoms might be due to an underlying autoimmune disorder, which inspired her to do more research and the discovery of Lyme and Lyme symptoms in July 2010.

Nowadays Karen is working to help the people of Australia learn about Lyme disease and other invisible illnesses. She created the Lyme Australia: Recognition & Awareness website, a co-creator of the Global Lyme and invisible illness website, and the co-creator of Red Shoe day.

#94: Carolyn H. – Candid insights into being a teen with Lyme disease

Carolyn suspects she was bitten by a tick about nine years ago. Rashes started appearing, as well a fever that would recur every six weeks. Over the next seven years she struggled with Lyme symptoms while being misdiagnosed and discredited by the doctors she visited. Her symptoms progressed to the point where she had to stop going to high school and continue her education through homeschooling. She was properly diagnosed several years ago and is undergoing treatment with the help of her Lyme literate Doctor. As of now she is taking online courses, volunteers, and continues to heal and explore treatment options.
