Alex (Ali) Moresco’s Lyme Hack:

“Hi friends, for those of you that I have not had the chance to meet yet, I am Ali Moresco and I am a fellow Lyme warrior and advocate that has had the privilege to raise over $350,000 for Global Lyme Alliance with 100% of that going to tick borne disease research and advocacy. So I was so thrilled when Matt and Rich asked me to join their Lyme Hackathon and share something that has made my life better in relation to battling tick borne illness. And I would have to say that one of the things that has impacted me the most is finding the Lyme community. So I would highly recommend utilizing Global Lyme Alliance as either a peer to peer mentor platform, or just searching on like Instagram or your favorite social media about, to see like where Lyme warriors are in your area, and connecting with them. And I feel like it gives us a sense of normalcy. And I know that like I’m 27. And when I got sick, I was in my early 20s. And I lost a lot of friends because they just didn’t understand what I was going through. But as cliche as it sounds, I really do feel like I’ve found my lifelong best friends through Lyme disease world. And I think that we can all do that, and have that little sliver of joy back in our lives. So utilize social media, utilize peer to peer mentorship platforms, and get back out there and make a new friend and I’m always happy to be your friend. So you can send me a message anytime on Instagram and I’m always happy to connect. So thank you to Tick Boot Camp for putting on the Lyme Hackathon and happy Lyme Awareness Month everyone and I will talk to you later. Bye.”

“Hi friends, for those of you that I have not had the chance to meet yet, I’m Ali Moresco and I’m a fellow Lyme warrior and advocate. And I was so thrilled when Matt and Rich asked me to participate in the Lyme Hackathon that they’re putting on for Lyme Awareness Month with the Tick Boot Camp podcast. So I just wanted to pop on here and share a little bit with you about a major tip and therapy that has been a game changer for me and that is IV therapy. So I have been sick with Lyme for so long that it shut down my immune system, and now I have a very serious immunodeficiency. So I started IVIG therapy in the late fall and I will do it for about a year and a half. So essentially, IVIG, it’s immunoglobulin therapy and immunoglobulins are found in the blood’s plasma. So essentially, the medication is made from blood donors blood and then it’s separated and they do what they do with it. And so far I have noticed a massive improvement with my fatigue and my overall health and previous neurological issues that I have had have certainly gotten better. I’m not all the way there but I’m you know, getting there. So IVIG has been a major game changer for me. And I personally get it infused subcutaneously so it gets put in via five little tiny needles, and it gets slowly infused over the course of hours at a time and it sounds a lot worse than it is it’s not actually that painful. I would say the worst part is when you initially start IVIG, you’re very tired and very fatigued. And that’s coming from someone who has a tick borne illness so you know it’s bad, but once your body adjusts to it, it gets better over time and eventually you start feeling better. So I hope that me sharing my IVIG experience with you, helps you in some way. So thank you to Tick Boot Camp for putting on the Lyme Hackathon this month and happy Lyme Awareness everyone. Bye.”

“Hi, friends, for those of you that I have not had the chance to meet yet, I’m Alex Moresco and I am a fellow Lyme warrior and advocate that has raised over $350,000 for Global Lyme Alliance with 100% of that going to support advocacy efforts and serious tick borne illness research. So I was beyond thrilled when Matt and Rich asked me to participate in the Lyme Hackathon with Tick Boot Camp. And they asked me if I would share something that has helped me with you. And I would say one of the things that has helped me the most is trying to reframe my brain. So practicing things like meditation and manifesting, and instead of saying to myself, Oh, I hope I’ll get better someday. I say, I will get better someday. And I really, really do believe that now. And I know that tick borne illness can be so defeating for us Lyme warriors. But I really do feel like there are good things coming for us. And with people like the guys behind the Tick Boot Camp, Podcast, there’s only positive education-based initiatives going on. So I’m so thankful for that. And, as always, I am more than happy to connect. So feel free to send me a message and we can chat. So happy Lyme Awareness everyone. Bye.”
