Global Lyme Alliance Column by Jennifer Crystal

You are not alone.
There is hope.

Since 2013, I have written a weekly column for Global Lyme Alliance, the leading non-profit dedicated to conquering Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. Ten percent of the proceeds of my memoir One Tick Stopped the Clock will be donated to Global Lyme Alliance.

My blogs covering nearly every aspect of living with tick-borne disease and other long-haul illness are all backlogged below, organized by topic. Scroll right through the topic bar to pick a category, and all of the related blog posts will appear. 


If you have a question that you don’t see answered in one of the blog posts or “Dear Lyme Warrior…Help!” FAQ columns, please email me at
