The purpose of LymeMIND Stories is to collect the real experiences of the people affected by, or otherwise connected to, Lyme disease.

By collecting these stories we hope to raise awareness, dispel confusion, increase support, and reduce isolation. We thank all who have generously participated in this experience and shared their stories with the world.
