    A small siesta

    Although resting sounds like a glamorous luxury, crippling fatigue keeps some people with Lyme stuck in bed for years. If one person napped every 2 minutes to raise Lyme disease awareness, there would be 300,000 activists, all exceedingly well-rested. Become a NAPtivist today! After you are well-rested, donate to #Nap4Lyme foundation $25, $50, $100.


    Bed head appreciated.

    Take a picture of yourself, during or post nap. Authentic sleep pics only please. Lots of people sleep with retainers, wear yours! No, you shouldn't remove your earplugs. Yes, cats are welcome to cuddle up next to you. Don't have time for a nap in bed, sleep at your desk at work. Naps at school aren't just for preschoolers, get your school to participate! Be creative.

  • Our vision = Your Eyes Closed: Join #Nap4Lyme

    What if you couldn't get out of bed -- for months for weeks months and even years? For people suffering from Lyme Disease, Fatigue is crippling. Lyme is the fastest-growing infections disease in America, and the epidemic is getting worse. It is called the "invisible disease" because sufferers are stuck in bed, with back pain, headaches, "brain-fog," seizures and depression. If someone get a bad case of Lyme, they are often forced to quit their jobs, - or drop out of school-- and yes for some Lyme can be fatal.   

    Lyme Is the Fastest Growing Infectious Disease

    Lyme Disease Is Transmitted through a Tick Bite.

    Ticks are so tiny, many people with Lyme never even remember a tick bite. Only 50% of sufferers will ever get the Bull's Eye rash. Worse, there are no accurate tests. Many people with Lyme do not test positive. Statistically, the tests have a false negative rate of 50%. How can you cure a disease if scientists have not yet figured out a way to predictably find it.

    One Bite Could Ruin Your Life

    The Unlucky People with "Chronic" Lyme

    PLTD (Post Lyme Treatment Disease) or Chronic Lyme is a name created to explain the thousands of Lyme sufferers that never got cured. Even the word "chronic" is upsetting to hear. With more research and funding there could and should be a cure.
