I can understand Bryon's actions...I can understand why...what a hero he is for fighting the brutal fight for so very long.

God knows.

So very sad. I wish he were still here, still fighting but I understand why he gave up. I know he has found a better place and he is not forsaken. God loves him. I believe we all love him.

Yeah, the Maine musician, Bill Chinnock, met a similar fate a few years ago. He thought he had resolved lyme only to see it come back. It's always tough for active people, talented people, passionate people, to be suddenly held hostage by such a complex illness...

i've been thinking about the end a lot lately.

i don't even know what to say here.

over the years there have been so many. i was in maine when the musicians story was in the paper.

theres pain and being tuff and fighting and being a survivor...and then there is just too much.

too much for a human to deal with.

Lyme? Its complicated. Educate yourself.

So heart breaking.

I've posted his story on the LymeNet obituary page and also forwarded it to Melanie to add to her beautiful Lyme Memorial website.

www.LymeMemorial.org

We also have another tragic death to mourn. An 8 year old child from Maryland. His story has also been placed on the LN obituary page.

We won't forget!

[group hug]
