I’ve seen Lyme disease pop up more and more in the news over the last few months – and wanted to learn more about it. The first thing I did was pick up Ally Hilfiger’s book (Bite Me: How Lyme Disease Stole My Childhood, Made Me Crazy, and Almost Killed Me). The subtitle of the book really grabbed my attention. But it also made me question if this was the work of a publisher doing their job to make me want to buy the book. I wondered if Lyme disease was really that serious. It is. After reading Ally’s book and talking with her, I now understand the power of this disease and how underestimated it is by so many. It can not only affect the physical body of its sufferers, but can alter their mental state, too.
Ally and I discuss why her Lyme disease went undetected for years, how she landed in a psych ward at the age of eighteen because of it, how she began to heal by incorporating a new set of tools into her life, what you can do to protect yourself from Lyme disease, and the biggest lesson she’s learned from living with a chronic illness.
