I’m off to the Capital!

Tomorrow afternoon is the senate hearing for the Minnesota Lyme bill, otherwise known as S.F. 1631. The bill is striving to protect the rights of both doctors and patients in the treatment of Lyme Disease.

I’m very curious about this process. It should be pretty interesting, if not madly overwhelming.

Wish us good luck!

More details can be found here and here.

I’ll post a follow-up as soon as I can!


(2-9-10) UPDATE: The hearing yesterday went about as well as I could have expected! It was a long, drawn out few hours filled with both Doctor and patient testimonies. We certainly packed the house, that’s for sure! It was surreal to see so many other people there who were affected by Lyme; but it was a reassuring feeling as we got down to business.

Long story short – The bill was approved after a 5 to 3 vote on the senate committee level, and will now be passed onto the senate floor!

Oh, sweet victory!

We’ll take them as they come, and hold our breath as we wait for the legislative process to continue. I’m so happy that I was able to attend the hearing, and see this process with my own eyes. Parts were emotional, irritating, nerve-wracking, and overall hilarious. But in the end it was worth it.

This article has been floating around my Lyme circles today on Facebook and Twitter. Check it out!

Have I mentioned I placed in the Minnesota state charter school essay contest? I don’t remember. I very well could have, or I just as likely forgot to. Either way, I did! I’m so proud. I placed second with an opinion essay about my school. I wrote the essay at the last minute at the end of last quarter and honestly forgot all about it. Then a few weeks ago my English teacher called me to share the good news. I was shocked! It’s the second year in a row someone from my school {BlueSky Online Charter School} has placed and they’re ecstatic about it as well.


So tomorrow is my big day. Or it’ll at least have a few interesting hours. Tomorrow morning I’ve been invited to read my essay on the steps of the state capital during a charter school event. I’m not sure what else is happening, or what it will all entail. But I’ve been told to bring my essay to read and be prepared to stay for a few hours. Will do.


I’m so excited! A bit nervous, but not too much. Although, maybe I should be… I haven’t done any public speaking in a while :)


I have a hard time reading a speech, or an essay, because continually moving my head up and down to look from my paper to the crowd causes me a lot of dizziness. I would compensate by memorizing parts of the material, but with my memory slipping more and more each day that’s just not realistic! I haven’t successfully been able to memorize anything since I began middle school. I was lucky just to remember my locker combination every morning last year. Oh well, I’ll do the best I can. That’s all I can ask of myself.


I know I’m going to have a great time, but some extra luck sent in my direction wouldn’t be misguided!

Peace and healing, molly
