Pending a reasonably priced hotel and reasonably energy levels this week, I may be headed to participate in my second Lyme disease Awareness/Activism/Advocacy event later this month.
My first was a rally outside of IDSA’s San Francisco convention in October 2013. It was a pivotal experience, made possible by flight benefits from my husband’s summer job and the timing of the government shutdown that occurred that year.
This month’s event is also possible because of our fall-time flight benefits from my husband’s summer job. And I guess you could say also by my relapse this spring that has me currently not working. Sabbatical is probably the best word for my current status.
On Wednesday, September 17, Lyme patients are gathering for a silent day time vigil outside of the New York Times offices in New York. I’m a bit pensive health-wise, but flights look good so far, so I think this could happen.
