I have actually done a hands feature before; apparently, I like them.

I'm desperately trying to spread Lyme Disease awareness, but I want to do it in a way that doesn't just say, "Hey, this exists!" Lyme Disease is a very, very serious and painful illness - so I'm going to do a series of features related to some of its symptoms.

Hands are so important. We do so many things with them.
My hands suffer from Lyme. The palms of my hands swell and hurt; the tops of my hands, between my joints, swell and are sensitive to the touch. The joints in my fingers ache, and my fingers swell so that I cannot get rings on and off. Sometimes my hands tingle, like I have lost circulation. Sometimes they burn. When I first got sick, my hands would become suddenly so weak that I couldn't press a button on the television remote control, or I would drop what I was holding. Sometimes when the palms or joints swell, I still can't hold things. The swelling and pain is random; it comes and goes, and there's no way to predict it.
