‘I know I’ve shared so many of my health tips and tricks, have always told you that my body is super sensitive and I’ve always knew something was a little bit off,’ she added. 

‘When I would consistently see how my body would react to things compared to family/friends, I decided to finally get tested for serval different things and tested positive for Lyme disease and several other co-infections,’ she continued.

Flanagan said the diagnosis was both, ‘a blessing and a curse,’ a blessing because now she can, ‘target why I feel off so often,’ and a curse because this means, ‘several different lifestyle changes will have to happen along with, ‘extensive research on how to help/hopefully cure this!’

‘I know this is going to be tough for me seeing what my brothers have gone through mentally and physically but I’m going to put so much of my time and energy into figuring this out and combatting this. Love all of you and let’s take on this new journey,’ she concluded in her caption.

She started sniffling and took several seconds to compose herself before continuing, ‘So I know that like…’ before breaking down again.

‘I’m pretty honest with you guys about what’s going on in my life,’ she said through tears to her 802K followers.

‘I always talk about like health and… how I just like always felt my body is so much more sensitive and super reactive to a bunch of things and… oh s**t… I just got the results back and I tested positive for Lyme,’ she said.

Flanagan added that two of her brothers have Lyme disease and, ‘a lot of their symptoms sounded really similar to me, because I have always had like something off since I was young.’

She added that she thinks she may have had Lyme, ‘for awhile,’ but she’s not quite sure at this time.

‘It’s not the end of the world, but it’s definitely going to be a lot of changes and I guess I’m gonna just incorporate you guys in it,’ she said.

She added she wasn’t sure how to do this, so she just said she tested positive, and, ‘I guess taking you on this journey of me figuring it out.’

‘I hope you guys have a good day. I’m trying to stay positive,’ she said, as the video came to an end.
