Welcome to the first fandom mash-up comic series, Tea with Tumnus Comic Productions. In other words, my camera and I have put together a little comic strip and I thought it would be an entertaining post for you readers.
There will be spoilers throughout the review. As I’m pretty sure most of you have read the Harry Potter series, I won’t worry about it too much, but if you’re new to the series, you probably should have second thoughts before continuing.
The two movies The Deathly Hallows Part 1 & Part 2 finally show a film adaptation of a Harry Potter book done right. The last six books before Deathly Hallows had a lot in them: great character arcs, plot twists, critical scenes … and only one movie for each book.
The last two weeks I’ve been posting all about Lyme Disease: The first was an intro, explaining exactly what Lyme Disease is and how it works, and thesecond was about what it’s like to live with Lyme and being friends with a Lymie. To finish off this series for Lyme Awareness Month, I’m focusing on you.
In the last post, I gave a basic introduction on Lyme Disease, what it is and how it affects its victims. It is a very dreadful disease and can completely take over one’s life. That’s what this post is about. How do people cope with Lyme Disease? How can they face every day of constant struggle with pain? There are a lot of answers and a lot of ways to answer them, so I won’t be able to cover everything in this post, but I’ll summarize each aspect as best as I can.
Pain. Unfathomable pain. Constant pain. And it’s going to stay for the rest of your life.
That is what most people realize when it becomes clear they have Lyme Disease. Of course, I know nothing about this pain I hear of. But I personally know people who have Lyme and I have had the privilege of being explained how it feels to live with Lyme from someone who has it. And it can be summed up pretty well in one word: Pain. The kind that leaves you bedridden and depressed. It can even lead you to question whether life is worth it anymore.
