Axel Roelants’ Lyme Hack:
Axel Roelants urges all Lyme patients to first LEARN about the disease. Read books, research, understand your body, and learn how to feel better! Ask others to help you learn if you are too sick. Axel urges you to form a care team and to look at Lyme disease like a project. Your care team can include people like your LLMD, general care physician, physical therapist, family, friends, and therapist. You need to rely on this team and lean on them when you are having bad days. Axel emphasizes most of us need to try different treatments and that we should not give up if one doesn’t work – you CAN get better! Listen to your body and don’t give up. Axel is from Belgium and was infected with Lyme disease in 2016.
