I am joining this online march because I am unable to attend any march in person due to my neurological illness (Lyme) and its unpredictable symptoms. Thank you for doing this! I am proud to be part of this community.
I am a writer and activist, and have been healing from very severe Lyme for the past four years. I often have difficulty walking and experience partial paralysis, in addition to which I’m usually mentally child-like and can’t tolerate big crowds. I wanted to attend the D.C. March, but realized with much sadness that I simply wouldn’t be able to because of my disability. So this online march is perfect for me. Thanks again.
