After I joined a few online support groups, what surprised me the most was the number of Lyme patients struggling with relationship issues. Then, I watched Under Our Skin and Under Our Skin 2: Emergence and saw even more examples of relationships that fell apart because of Lyme.
I wanted to write an article/essay to pay homage to my husband. I wrote this article as a practical guide for Lyme patients and a love letter to Zach. You can read it here:

How has Lyme impacted your relationships?
