Lyme Disease And Suicide, An Ignored Problem!

I am not at all surprised at the high rate of suicide among Chronic Lyme Disease sufferers. If you are one of us I don’t even have to tell you why. At the worst times the hopelessness is so thick you can almost see it in the air. The physical pain and suffering seem like they will go on forever and even when you are diagnosed and being treated things always get worse before they get better. My sister and I definitely had some very dark thoughts when we were most depressed and in the worst period of treatment, but it was our faith and having each other (and loving family and good friends) that got us through. As terrible as what we have experienced is I know that there are so many that have/do suffer far worse. I am sharing the below article that deals with the dark subject of suicide and Lyme.
