Twenty-nine year old Kelly Flanagan, a former contestant on the popular dating show The Bachelor, recently shared that she has been diagnosed with lyme disease, a bacterial infection that comes from a tick bite. Flannagan also shared how difficult her journey has been so far while being in the public eye, because people often judge her for being out and about but not looking sick.
