What do you do when you have quite literally, no where to turn? What do you do when you are faced with unbearable pain, loss, depression, anxiety, and absolutely no answers as to why? What do you do when the people closest to you don't believe you when you say something is wrong. Something really, really awful is going on inside of me?
Unfortunately, those are the questions that many of us face when we are either in the process of being diagnosed with, already suffering from, or have been fighting Lyme Disease for many years. There is no certainty, and for many, there is no solution. We can do everything right only to find that we should have done things differently. That the obstacles we face may never leave us part of an outcome we feel comfortable with.
With that being said, I would like to introduce you to someone who has forged her own path in unfolding and discovering the importance of standing your ground when facing unanswered questions. When facing a disease that takes your life and turns it upside-down, and her name is Lari Vejarano.
Lari is a force to be reckoned with. She is a piece of hope where little is found, resilience amidst hardship, determination when facing obstacles, and laughter when all else fails; she is living a life more than in a country where, like many, Lyme is not given the recognition is deserves, but despite it all, Lari is rolling up her sleeves and pursuing treatments, doctors, and a life amidst the chaos that is this disease.
