I lost my career and income, home and marriage, health and well-being to Lyme AND I am not alone. This epidemic now rages worldwide (89 countries have Lyme) and I am one of the rare few whom has fully recovered from this illness, with 5 years of intensive treatments and a whole life makeover. My award winning book OUT OF THE WOODS, HEALING LYME DISEASE, BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, chronicles my riveting journey and just what it looks like on the inside of this illness. My voice is one of the multitudes. Too many have lost too much.
I have now devoted my reclaimed life to Lyme disease education, recovery and advocacy. In 2012 I gave 37 lectures, 16 radio interviews, 8 front page newspaper pieces, 5 TV interviews, plus endless blogs and magazine articles on this illness. I can not ask you LOUD enough to cover this topic on your show Katie, and to bring me on as a guest. I will deliver an impressive interview for you that is authentic, intelligent and vital for the future health care of our country. This bacterial illness has surpassed HIV in how fast it is spreading. Time in NOT on our side, but your program and reporting are.
Thank you for caring for the all too many who have been mishandled for too long while Lyme disease surges.
