    Woke up bright an early to catch the sun shining through my window blinds. I titled this photo "tactile" for a series i am currently working on portraying my battle with lyme disease. Tactile, by definition means "connected with a sense of touch". One of my symptoms is Allodynia, a rather painful and uncomfortable feeling all over my body, caused my the lightest of touch. Pain from clothing, pain from wind, pain from anything. The severity is different from day to day.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I love how your frame resonates with Your Shot photographer Andrea LaRiviere: "I like the rawness of this image. The light is beautiful and hot. I too have Lyme disease (have had it for over 11 years now). My skin does not hurt like yours, instead it is muscle pain all over my body in random places and severe migraines... My heart goes out to you. I hope you find a way to deal with the cruelties this disease inflicts. It seems you have through your photography."
