Claire Dalton’s Lyme Hack:
Claire Dalton shares that you should NEVER forget where your help comes from. So often, she sees herself as Peter in the Bible who takes one step on the water to meet Jesus, only to sink. Then, he’s met by the hand of Jesus, who rescues him in his drowning moment. Don’t let doubt and fear make you sink in your Lyme journey. Don’t forget who’s there rescuing you and making it possible for you to walk on water. Every day, every healing moment, every miracle, every breakthrough, even the smallest victors, write down in a journal. Go back and read them when you’re in the trenches and you’re suffering horrendously, and things are just hard. You’ll always have a place to go back to and remember where your help comes from.
Claire is a 22-year-old woman from Utah. For most of her life, Claire’s mother was chronically ill from late-stage Lyme Disease. It never crossed Claire’s mind that her mother’s illness was something that would impact her as well. Unfortunately, at the age of 17, Claire began to exhibit the symptoms of a tick disease that progressed to a chronic stage and forced her to leave college before the end of her first semester. Claire runs three blogs on her Chronically Beautiful platform in addition to the Chronically Care Project. If you would like to learn more about how a family from Utah worked together to overcome multi-generational Lyme Disease, then tune in to episode 41 of our Tick Boot Camp Podcast!
