Nic Turinski is a 39-year-old data analyst and artist from Eugene, Oregon. He is the creative force driving the Chronic 2 Wear brand. Mr. Turinski was an uber athletic 18-year-old basketball player when he began to suffer classic Lyme disease symptoms. The then undiagnosed disease restricted his athleticism eventually stealing his athletic gifts entirely. At the height of the disease, he lost all mobility, suffered seizures, and required the assistance of an electric wheelchair to experience the outside world. His eight-year diagnostic journey was checkered with medical incompetence caused by “doctors trying to validate themselves by invalidating [him].” Before he could locate a path to healing, Lyme disease required him to learn two life lessons: treatment must be slow and steady and healing requires you to locate a passion outside of Lyme disease. If you would like to learn more about how the creative force behind the Chronic 2 Wear brand is using slow and steady progress and artistic passion to heal from Lyme disease, then tune in now!

The goal of the Tick Boot Camp Podcast is to help people liberate themselves and others from suffering caused by Lyme disease through validation, community building, belief that healing is possible, and modeling success.
