Lyme Disease: You’re not alone April 29 and May 20

Contrary to popular belief, Lyme disease is not always cured simply by a quick, one-time treatment, but can take months or even years to get rid of it. Some have found that they never get rid of all the damage that this bacteria and its co-infections has done to their bodies. We will be viewing and discussing the dramatic documentary, “Under Our Skin,” that focuses on the epidemic of chronic Lyme disease.

This class will be offered Tuesday, April 29, in Cold Spring and again Tuesday, May 20, in Sartell. The class will be led by the St. Cloud Area Lyme Support Group, all of whom have been diagnosed and struggled with this complex disease. We invite everyone to come to support, learn, and share with each other the struggles that come with this disease and its effect on the body. And before you head outdoors this summer, make sure you are on the lookout for the tiny tick that can cause you lots of misery.

The class is free to everyone. Registration prior to the class is required through the Cold Spring Community Education at (320) 685-8631, or the Sartell-
St. Stephen Community Educ-ation Office, (320) 253-4036.
