As many of you know, I was suspended from my university because i had gotten very ill and couldnt attend class (Spinal Taps and etc). Because of my LLND, she got me back in.

I have been ill for almost a year with Lyme Disease now. And found out that there are 2 others on campus with Lyme.

So.... I had an idea.

I decided that it would be neat to have a support group for Lyme, and also other chronic illness' such as Lupus, Ms, and etc. Maybe as just one support group on campus? Also, people who are just interested in supporting the group on campus!

I know 2 other kids at school who have Lyme, and it would be nice to have a support group to just know that there are people who are there for you.

I just want to give help to others with chronic illness. Give them help and the support I did not have in the beginning. Just for other to know there not alone.

I also wanted to raise more awareness about Lyme, MS and Lupus etc. here in Eastern Idaho. Maybe by having a walk a thon and etc?


I just need Ideas for the group:

-- How to advertise on campus for the group
-- What things to do as a group (activities, food, and etc)
-- Awareness ideas
-- Fundraisers
-- How to basically get this ball rolling

and any other ideas you think would help!!!
Thanks so much!

Connect with the leaders of the groups around you. And be sure to get guidance from:

http://www.lymediseaseassociation.org/

Lyme Disease Association

Contact: http://www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=274&Itemid=25

You might plan for guest speakers such as counselors, Qi Gong or Tai Chi - or Yoga teachers, etc. Maybe bring in a chef to teach cooking, etc.

When I was in college (undergrad) there was a girl who found out she had Lupus. She talked with our sorority and we set up fundraisers to help with campus awareness.

You might check with clubs/groups on campus to see if they want to get involved. Many have charities that they raise money for during the year.

At least they may have a few ideas on how to get the ball rolling! Good Luck!! [Smile]
