Merry Christmas!

Lyme Disease UK wishes all of our members, supporters, likers and followers a very merry Christmas, a happy and healthier new year!



A group member provided us with much hilarity by writing this Lymie take on All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey. Original version can be found here. For more fun and frovolity, (and also some support) see our discussion group on facebook.


All I Want for Christmas

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
I want just one wish this year
Please take this pain away from me
To live my life Lyme free from here

I don’t just want this for myself
But for all who fight for life and health
It’s time this wish came true
You would help if this was happening to you….ooooh help us!

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
A doctor who will care a little
To take the time to learn, to read

A massive problem, a tiny tick
Don’t ignore, this does exist
So much a doc could do
If you only just believed it, yes you…. ooooh help us!

Oh the aches, the pains, the herx that fills the air
We can’t escape from Lyme it’s in us everywhere

And all the pills we’re rattling
This spiral beast were battling
Please doctors, give us this one thing we need
A fun filled, a care free life we could lead.

Oh I don’t want a lot for Christmas
I want just one wish this year
To dry my tears, to make me smile
To make the brain fog disappear

We trusted you to ease our pain
Instead you say we’ve gone insane
It’s time you did your bit
Don’t just sit and and watch while we all get sick.
