The Faces of Lyme: Megan & Cristi
“It does get better”
A powerful story of a mother and daughter both living with Lyme disease for 11 years before a proper diagnosis.
Megan, now 23, has lived with lyme since she was 10 years old; a life with lyme was her “normal”. Not wanting her normal to be continued setbacks with lyme, she took control of her disease by changing her diet, living a healthier lifestyle and having a positive attitude.
Cristi, nearly septic, has her life back after overcoming severe symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, tremors, unstable gait, and joint pain. After several doctors visits with diagnoses ranging from no diagnosis to depression to “it’s all in your mind”, she is relieved to be on the right path to recovery.
Megan and Cristi share their struggles with finding the right diagnosis, changing their lifestyle, and dealing with setbacks. Through humor and the support of each other, they feel they have their life back after a long 3 year journey.
