Absence of Evidence is not Evidence - 289/365
Each day I walk the forest trails in back of my house and I inevitably walk through 1 or 2 strands of errant spider webbing. It's impossible for anyone to see it, but I can feel it on my face or bare arms in the summer. No matter how hard I try, I can't remove it, because single strands of webs are tricky like that. So I just ignore it and get on with my walk, knowing I'll shower it off when I get home. This is what it's like to have Lyme disease. You can feel it, but nobody can see it. Only Lyme disease is more painful than an annoying strand of spider webbing nobody can see.
Absence of evidence is not evidence. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. I am just thankful for all the Lyme disease doctors who have faith in their patients and do everything in their power to help us recover.
