Hello! My name is Lavi Picu and I am a Lyme-sufferer, a mother, a writer and a self-taught visual artist. My Lyme Journey started about ten years ago and it took me through some intense challenges. It turned my life upside down, and taught me that I had to change my ways in order to be healthier and happier.

This blog is about how I learnt to deal and live with Lyme on a daily basis. Juggling with a chronic illness is not an easy task, but it is not always impossible.


Creative art therapy is the cheapest treatment one can get!

While seeking for some magical solution to help me cope with the pain, I discovered the power of creative art therapy. I found comfort in painting and writing. Thus, I wrote and I painted until I completely forgot about the pain.

Today I am pleased to share with you three of my books, available via Amazon: “WHITELESS THOUGHTS – Bits of darkness and pain” , “BURDEN OF LOVE” and “TALES OF A MOODY HEART.

These poetry collections are inspired by my darkest hours of sickness and pain.
