What we're about
" But you look so good?" Sound familiar? Lyme disease is one of the "invisible diseases" and often lyme patients suffer consequences of "not looking sick" - jobs are lost, family and friends don't understand, doctors don't believe you or want to treat you, etc., etc. In addition, Lyme Patients often, due to crushing fatigue and pain, find themselves alone and isolated unable to go to work or socialize, which can negatively impact one's ability to recover.
This group is Open to Lyme Disease Patients and Friends and Family of Lyme Patients for the purpose of establishing a community of support and creating a safe venue for sharing experiences, challenges, information and camaraderie. Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the meetings are facilitated by an acupuncturist, sound healer and experienced meditator, who is also diagnosed with neurological lyme. Sessions will include guided-meditation, group discussion and possibly sound/music therapy.
