“My need is the ability to get to the pool. I have Lyme disease and have been disabled since 2001. I have various friends who help me with transportation, but because of the number of needs I have, they cannot meet all of them.
Lyme is a very, very painful disease. Being able to get in the pool for 1-2 hours significantly reduces my pain and stiffness. It has dramatically improved the quality of my life. I can actually sleep in the night and am able to do much more physically. When I don’t get in the water, it is very hard to move around and carry out simple activities. I have tried other forms of transportation, but riding in the car is the easiest and least painful for me. This is why I so greatly appreciate Collinsville Faith in Action. Being able to get to the pool so improves the quality of my life.”
