Lindsey Hays

Patient Leader

Anyone with a chronic illness, or loved ones of those with one, know that it somehow finds a way into every part of your life until it's beyond overwhelming. I know how this feels (I have Late-Stage Neurological Lyme Disease and Bartonella that was undiagnosed for 15+ years) so I decided to fight fire with laughter! This is why I created Laugh Out Lyme and All Chronic Illnesses. As one of our page followers said, “Sometimes laughing is the last thing you want to do when you deal with chronic illness, but once you let out a little giggle and then a couple more, you can’t help but feel uplifted, even if only for a second." Because, after all, sometimes laughter really is the best medicine.

I found Laugh Out Lyme and All Chronic Illnesses Facebook page one day and have been visiting daily ever since! Every day they post hilarious pictures, jokes, and videos just to make those of us battling a chronic illness (or support an ill loved one) LAUGH. Even though it may only last a second, it lets me forget all of the bad for that instant.  — Lindsey

I found this Facebook page by accident one day and have visited every day since. Laugh Out Lyme and All Chronic Illnesses posts so many funny pictures, jokes, and videos every single day just so that those of us (or a loved one) struggling with a chronic illness can have LAUGHTER! I don't know how I'd make it through each day without them.  — Lindsey
