Hannah Barry

My name is Hannah Barry. I am 26 years old and I am from the great state of Maine. Well, actually, I was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire-but I can’t help that. I grew up in Old Town-where I still reside-and I attended University of Maine, Orono.

Five years ago I was bit by a tick. On October 29th, 2015 I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Today I strive to spread knowledge and positive awareness of the mysterious disease known as Lyme. In this blog I hope to share my own personal story and struggles with Lyme. In addition, I hope to expound upon the mysteries and politics surrounding Lyme as well as home remedies and where affected people could find help and support.

Some of you may recognize me as the writer for the once active BDN local music blog The Bangor Boom Box. Or perhaps you may not recognize me at all, which is more likely. In either case, I hope you find this new blog relatable, helpful, and at times a bit comical.
