Mary Kate Robertson recently opened up about her and her family’s diagnosis with Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a chronic illness riddled with controversy. It seems to puzzle doctors.

Mary Kate explained to her blog readers that she and her family were diagnosed when she was in her early preteens. Her father seems to suffer the most. Mary Kate says, “He just felt so sick and didn’t know what was wrong. He felt like he had the flu really bad and he’d also been having a lot of memory problems.”

Mary Kate’s sister was also diagnosed at the time and is currently undergoing treatment. The Duck Dynasty star described her current situation saying, “I’m healthy enough to be active and do things, but it always comes with a price. Always. My family has been to countless doctors all over the country and no one is any healthier. “

Felt Compelled To Speak Up

Mary Kate decided to share her experience with the chronic illness not out of a need for attention, but out of a calling to help others.

She says that she hopes others with similar experiences will feel less alone and comforted. She also hopes to remind her readers that God’s plan is greater than any hardships on earth.

“We don’t understand, but God has a plan. We may not have healing on earth, but God has got healing waiting for us in heaven.”
