Under Our Skin


 December 6, 2011

All I ask is you watch this movie for about 5 minutes, because I know it is long. Some of you may not know this, but I have Lyme's disease that was confirmed back in July. They think the whole disease started out as Lyme's and over time has manifested itself as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Below is a video I wanted to keep documented for myself. It explains a lot of how I feel and similarities of what I have gone through. About the first 5 minutes there is a girl who is very similar to how I am. Her name is Mandy with blonde hair. I am worse in my movements. Sometimes I can't move at all. The other difference with Mandy is the disease affected her speech where mine is not. Lyme's disease can manifest in different ways. Luckily my brain is not affected and I am not a quadriplegic. My doctor is also at the end of this video. His name is Dr. Klinghardt in Kirkland, Washington. He is about 45:45 into the video.
