Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is the fastest-growing vector-borne illness in the United States and affects animals and people across the world. I was finally diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease in 2014 after a long-time struggle with my health, and it's still a significant part of my story. I've compiled some helpful resources in case it's part of yours, too.

I found this shower cover to be the easiest to get on and the most effective in keeping my arm dry. You do have to replace it every 6-8 weeks, but it's quite reliable until then.

CEO and Co-Founder, Emily Levy, is a Lyme Disease patient and was super sweet to me when I first learned I'd be needing one (and was pretty nervous about it). I tried a number of different sleeves, but this sleek, comfortable fold-over design was the one I opted for almost daily. If I had to do this all over, I'd just stick with a couple of Mighty Well covers.
