Lessons Iíve learned in 7 years with Lyme disease

Lessons Iíve learned in 7 years with Lyme disease

by Anthony Wallace

In an all too familiar tale, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease after three years of mysterious symptoms and a lot of doctors who didnít take me seriously.

Like others whoíve been through this, I came out the other end with an new perspective on the human body, the US healthcare system, and what it means to ďbe sick.Ē

My initial onset of symptoms came just weeks before my high school graduation, when I was 18 years old. Today, at 25, I continue to endure evolving health issues, experiment with treatments, and attempt to navigate regular life along the way.

In spite of unpredictably fluctuating and occasionally debilitating bouts of (among other things) brain fog, fatigue, aches, and heart palpitations, I am living what I honestly feel to be a fulfilling life full of adventure and achievement.

I believe that being afflicted with chronic illness is an opportunity to, as the great philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche says, ďbecome who you are.Ē Here are some of the most personal and powerful lessons Iíve learned in my seven years of seeing the world through the lens of Lyme disease.

Empathy and Empowerment for Recovery are Everywhere
Living with Lyme is a daunting challenge. There is no shortage of stories, art, and philosophical musings on this subject for inspiration and reassurance that you arenít the only one. Nearly all of the most helpful bits of advice and guidance Iíve received in the course of my battle had nothing to do with Lyme disease whatsoever, but rather, the nature of struggle, endurance, and faith.

Faith is Medicine


Recently, I listened to a podcast with Capt. Charlie Plumb, an American Navy pilot who was shot down in Vietnam and spent six torturous years in the famously brutal Hanoi Hilton POW camp. Despite unimaginable mental and physical abuse, the 500 or so Americans held at the camp turned out to do incredible things Ė becoming senators, CEOs, and various other influential figures.

Capt. Plumbís message is one of endurance, faith, and joy in struggle. He and his fellow prisoners made it through their unimaginable hell on earth by maintaining a stubborn, genuine belief that their situation was temporary, that relief was inevitable.

This mindset not only kept these prisoners alive but shaped them into extraordinary members of society. Iíve come to reframe my illness as a temporary, epic challenge that will shape me into something greater than I could have previously imagined.

This has alleviated my fatigue and achiness as well as any antibiotic, supplement, or alternative therapy. Iíve come to believe that this type of faith is more powerful than modern medicine can comprehend.

When I am at my worst, I think of The Torment of St. Anthony, a Michelangelo painting that serves as a glorification of faith in the face of struggle. According to legend, St. Anthony of Egypt moved into a cave to live in isolated prayer and was subsequently tortured relentlessly by demons. Anthony took the horrific beating with patient pride, knowing full well that God would eventually come to save him and reward his good faith.

Faith alone wonít cure you, but the best doctors, treatments, and diets in the world are for naught if devoted to a patient who is deeply convinced that they are doomed to eternal sickness.

Dear RM Agents and Readers,

Mind over matter is certainly something you must always keep in mind with any chronic illness.

Many Blessings,
