Introducing you to Kami Lingren from Living Grace who is a truly beautiful soul. Kami has been diagnosed with Lyme and a handful of other diagnoses, with dizziness, head pain, bone and joint pain as the most debilitating symptoms. At its worst, her list of symptoms from her illness had grown to nearly 80, which she know so many others can relate to.

I have written the following post in collaboration with Sam Moss of My Medical Musings and I have referenced some of the posts that Sam has written there.
