A Word From Jenny Lelwica Buttaccio, OTR/L

I know how scary it can be to weed through endless pages of medical information trying to understand your health condition—I've been there. Some days, I'm still there!

I document my personal healing journey from Lyme disease on my blog,, and through several, published health and wellness articles and personal essays. I aim to tell my story with hope, positivity, and a realistic look at the struggles that those of us with invisible illnesses face. My desire is that people will find the tools they need to heal and live life to the fullest. Through my writing, my goal is to make tough topics and information relatable to readers.
