Lyme Bloggers

*Due to the discontinuation of Google Reader, I’m unable to display the list of blogs. The most recent posts from the list are still available here, though. The list is almost up to 500 bloggers & vloggers. As soon as my Lyme brain can teach myself how to format JSON using PHP, the list will be available. Ha. If someone would like to volunteer this service, it would be greatly appreciated.*

Lyme Blog newspaperEveryone has a story. I have been told many times that I should write mine. Unfortunately, my Lyme Disease is quirky in a way that I can’t seem to make myself write. It has somehow affected my ability to concentrate in just that way. Or maybe it’s the social anxiety that it causes that prevents me from writing to an audience as large as the internet. On the other hand, the internet is my playground. It is where I get to go to keep my overly active mind entertained when my body is too exhausted to move. At some points in my Lyme symptom cycle, I am able to sit for hours & gather information.

Recently someone joked that everyone with Lyme plans to write a book. I have certainly considered it, once my exhausted body can keep up with my over-active mind. I started thinking, though, about all the Lyme blogs that I was familiar with. I’m always in awe of people who are capable of writing on extremely technical topics, or developing recipes, or having the consistency to chronicle their progress every day.

During one of computer browsing peaks I decided to take a look around at the Lyme Blogs out there. I thought, “If I can’t blog myself, maybe I can provide a source for Lyme blogs.” What I found was amazing. Many people blogging for many different reasons. What I created is one cohesive feed of every Lyme patient (currently suffering or fully healed) that I could find.

What you will find to the left is the aggregated feed showing the most recent posts of this collection of Blogs. What you will find on the right is a list of the Blogs included in the feed.

If you are currently experiencing or have experienced Lyme Diseas & have a blog or YouTube channel, I would love to include you. Please send me a link on Twitter.

    I enjoyed reading your blog. My daughter who is 12 has had Lyme for 3 years now and counting. We have had many set backs in her health, but we are hoping to move forward and to one day be “Lyme free”. Thank you for your blog and the information it shares =) I have attached a youtube video of my daughter if anyone is interested.

    • Thanks for the comment Yvonne. I have subscribed to your YouTube channel & included it in my list on the Lyme Bloggers page so that we can all follow your daughter’s progress. I, too, believe that it is completely possible to be “Lyme free” & wish that for your daughter. Sending good thoughts & prayers to you. :)

    Hi Kelly,
    Thank you for this wonderful list of blogs! I can’t wait to browse through them. Please add mine (link above) when you have the chance.
    Thanks again!

  • What a fantastic resource, thank you so much! I am awed by the online lyme community, a courageous and positive lot. I’ve added you to my new blog’s lyme links, and hope you’ll do the same.

    • Sorry it took me so long to take care of this. You know how it is. :) I have added you to my list of Lyme bloggers & also added one of your articles to my list of useful Lyme Links. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!!!!

    A petition is being circulated to get President Obama to invalidate the outrageous IDSA guidelines which have severely
    harmed many thousands of people. Information about this petition and how to get your signature added can be found at:
    http://lymediseaseresource.com/wordpress Now click on: Jenna’s Lyme blog
    This blog will route you to a petition that resides at Whitehouse.gov petition.
    We need as many signatures as possible as quickly as possible. There is too much at stake to fall short and not correct this
    grave injustice.

    Great site. How do we get our blogs added to your list?

    Hello, could you add my blog to the list? Or my latest post to the feed on the left?

    Thanks for all your hard work in collecting all these blogs together into one great resource!

    • Absolutely. I’m in the middle have to come up with a new way to create this page now that Google Reader is being shut down, so it may be off & on for the next few months, but you’re there & I promise not to lose you in the transition. Ha.

  • Jenna Dredge says:

    Hi – I lost 8 years to lyme.

    After reading about what others went through with Lyme it’s good to know I’m not alone. I just posted my story on http://ihavelymedisease.blogspot.com/
