In Their Own Words: Stories of Children and Adolescents
Children and adolescents have unique issues with tick-borne illnesses. As the Children’s and Mental Health Editor of the Lyme Times, a quarterly publication of the California Lyme Disease Association, I have had the privilege of editing stories written by children for a special column titled, “In Our Own Words: Stories of Children and Adolescents”, a regular feature I began in the Summer of 2007.
Not only do these stories allow us a window into the lives of these children, but they also give young readers the opportunity to hear from their peers. I hope you gain from the experience of reading these stories, as I certainly have.
