Come join us at our next LymieMom’s Meeting! 3/20/16

Once again we will be trying to have another LymieMoms Social Lunch at Panera Bread. January’s meeting got canceled due to the Big Snow Storm so hopefully with Spring right around the corner we won’t have to reschedule this meeting too!

This meeting will be held in the same town and same place as originally planned, Quakertown, PA, at the Panera Bread. Come out for some great conversation, good food, support and make some new friendships too. All Moms with Lyme, Kids who have it, those expecting or trying to get pregnant, or just those Ladies who would like to join us to learn more. Grandmother’s who’s grandkids who have it are welcome as well. We just ask that you leave your children at home so that us Mom’s can focus on each other. I will be scheduling a Day with our kids to meet when the weather gets warmer.

This is the address where it will be held if you dont have a Facebook Page or Twitter Account which is where I usually update about these Monthly Meetings.

Address: Panera Bread, Quakertown PA

Also, I’ve had many other Ladies and Mom’s sad that they can not make these Meetings because they are in another State and County. My hope for this group is to expand it into other States as well, however there is only one of me and I can not be in every state possible. What I’m asking is for anyone who has interest in becoming a “LymieMom Host” in your own town please contact me. There is not a lot of responsibility either if you are not completely 100% sure you can physically do this. Even if you find someone else in your area who would like to do it as well, you can have two people running it and switch off running the monthly meetings. I have no problem with that. So if you have any interest or know anyone who may have them contact me at my email Lymeaway77@gmail.com 

Thank you~Alison

LymieMoms Social Group  had taken a hiatus the last several months, but we are back now to our meetings starting up again. I do hope you all had a happy and hopefully not too painful Holiday and were able to enjoy your time with your family and friends. My family and I were very busy running from one family party to the next, church service, and of course having family of our own over the holiday as well and celebrating the New Year too. Least to say as nice as it was this year, I’m glad its over. I’m exhausted and ready to get back to some normalcy and could definitely use my Ladies time with some of you beautiful Mamas!

Our newest meeting coming up will be on Sunday January 24, 2016 from 1:00-4:00pm at the Panera Bread in Quakertown, PA. If you have a Facebook page you can find updates here LymieMoms January Social These meetings are open to Mother’s who have Lyme, Mother’s whose children have Lyme Disease or newly diagnosed, those interested in learning more and speaking with others who have been through Pregnancy and Lyme Disease or want to start a family.  I understand myself because back in 2010 when my Husband and I talked about starting a family it was a tough choice and I found that the friendship and advice as well as hearing experiences from other Lyme Parents out there helped me to make a decision for us. Plus making new friends for me has been the bonus 🙂 As of now Children are not allowed to join our meetings only because our full attention will be on them, I apologize but come the warmer months I promise to have several events so that our kids may join in and meet each other.

A note as well…I currently am looking for LymeMom Social Leaders for your town and county. Sadly I can’t be everywhere each month and as of now I’ve only been able to have meetings in PA, my goal is in surrounding areas as well such as Delaware and New Jersey. If only there were two of me! Its not a huge responsibility so if you have any interest please contact me at Lymeaway77@gmail.com

Well, I hope to see some new faces at this meeting this month! Also, if there is snow that day please look for updates either on our Facebook Page LymieMoms Social Group or look here on my Blog for updates.

Come out to our October LymieMoms Social Event! 10/11/15

1888484_10152390923879155_2053769405_n(1) As I’ve mentioned before on other posts. I started an online Support Group for Mom’s with Lyme Disease called Lymie Moms Unite, who’s kids are suffering from it, as well as for those who are pregnant or looking to start a family and in need of support and friendship. Many of the Mothers in my online Facebook group are young Mother’s who have sick kids and looking for answers and support. Others are there for information. We also have Veteran Lymie Moms who are there to help those who are now going though their own journey. Its amazing some of the friendships these women have made with each other already and even myself have. Im very big on a drama free and luckily we’ve never had that either. I’ve heard from some of the Moms telling me they feel safe in this group, which was the approach I wanted when I started this. A no judgement group where Mom’s can vent if needed, come together and also support one another without bashing one another for their own choices in their journey to have a family and the kind of treatment they do. I want to make it clear too because I’ve had others ask. This group is not just for the young Mother’s out there. We welcome Mother’s with grown children as well as Grandmother’s who may have a grandchild who as sick as well.

Recently, this past summer, I had an idea to get local Mom’s together each month, or every other to meet in person. That idea turned into the LymieMoms Social Group of PA/NJ/DE. We had our first meeting with 4 of us there at a Panera Bread in Montgomery County, PA. It turned out wonderful, we had lunch, shared our stories and advice with each other. I realized soon it very much something that was needed and was happy that I started it. The plan is to change locations every time which is what I’ve been doing so far and its turned out great! I only wish I could travel to each state and county meeting more Mother’s out there, but sadly I am unable to do that I am only one person and have a family of my own. My great hope is that we can do this wherever the Social part of LymieMoms is needed. Therefore I’m asking if any of you are interested in being a LymieMoms Host in your State and County please let me know by emailing me at lymeaway77@gmail.com The volunteer job does not come with a huge responsibility. You would just have to pick a place each month or every other to have lunch, dinner, or coffee then invite people. The key is to get together without spending too much money. There is no money that you have to put up front. Its just a matter of making a commitment to keep the group going. I also doing mind helping out with the invites if  needed through social media.

I do hope to see some of you local Ladies, Moms, soon to be, etc. in the PA area at our next meeting which is this Sunday, October 11th @1-3:30pm at the Wegmans Pub in King Of Prussia, PA. Please RSVP at the link below on Facebook and I hope to see you there!

August LymieMom Meeting **CANCELED**

I apologize for the inconvenience, but due to the lack of people officially attending this Month’s Moms get together in King Of Prussia, PA, tomorrow the 23rd of August, I am going to have to CANCEL.  

I think since the last two meetings have not been the best with the amount of Women being able to attend I am going to try to do this every other month instead. We’ll see if we get a better a turn out that way. I know it’s hard in the summer too with families vacationing and such as well so maybe in the Fall it will be easier for everyone. 
I will still be having one in September and then another in November. Dates will be announced soon and it will still be at the same place as this months was supposed to be, Wegman’s Pub, King Of Prussia, PA. Just continue to look for my announcements on here and in our main LymieMoms Social Club Page or in our LymieMoms Support Group Page. Links are below. 
Thank you for understanding everyone and have a wonderful week ahead!💚💚💚

LymieMoms August Social Event 

 ***THIS EVENT IS CANCELED***

See Blog Post: August LymieMom Meeting Canceled 

 Come this Sunday, August 23rd @1pm in King Of Prussia, PA at the Wegman’s Pub. I will be hosting our 3rd Event for my Lymie Moms Unite Group that is on Facebook. I started the main group shortly after my Daughter got diagnosed with Lyme Disease at just 14 weeks old. This Summer I decided to expand it into a Social atmosphere for Moms to get together, build friendships, and support one another as well as share their experiences on what it’s like to not only deal with a Chronic Illness like this themselves, but raise a child who is suffering as well. I also found I had many others Mother’s contacting me about starting a family after they heard about our Surrogacy Journey in 2011 which created our now 3 yr old Daughter Hannah. 

The Group has become a wonderful outlet for Mother’s looking for support as well as those wanting to start a family while still in treatment for Chronic Lyme Disease or just regaining remission. 

My Group is open to any Mother’s battling the illness, children whom have it, those wanting to start a family and are already pregnant and looking for advice. This group has not only been a learning experience for myself, but I’ve made many wonderful friendships with other Mom Warriors. I do hope to see some of you in the Group as well as at our upcoming Social Events! 

As of now our meetings are being held at a different location each month in the Surrounding Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware Areas. I am looking to expand into other counties and states though. If you have any interest in becoming a Lymie Mom Host in your area please contact me at Lymeaway77@gmail.com and I can give you further details. It’s not a big commitment if you do have an interest.
