Some of you may know that I left my full-time job as a school social worker this fall for a part-time job as a college counselor. This was a very difficult decision for me to make, but I can tell the difference in my health. I finally have time to focus on my diet and I've been writing more. I am so grateful that I was able to make the move to part-time work, because I know many Lyme patients don't have that option.
I wrote about my transition in a post for the Global Lyme Alliance blog. You can read the post here:
