Lyme Disease has destroyed my life thumbnail

A RANDALSTOWN woman has bravely spoken about her 12-year long battle with Lyme Disease - 'the AIDS of our time' - in an effort to raise awareness about the debilitating condition.
In an emotional interview with the Antrim Guardian, Kelly Stewart reveals the extent of her suffering and has urged other people to be aware of the severity of the disease and how it spreads through tick bites.
“I have no idea what the future holds," she said.
“People may have heard of Lyme Disease but they have no idea how serious it is and the way that it invades your body.
“It can kill you and people have taken their own lives because they cannot cope with it.
“I hope that by speaking out, it will make people more aware of the disease and just how serious it is."
