In this video, Fox 5 describes the controversy of Lyme Disease, and what it is like to go through the diagnosis and treatment process. For many of you coming to our website, you have had similar experiences and most likely can relate to how frustrating it is to find an accurate diagnosis, effective treatment, and struggle to pay for that treatment when insurance companies and the wider medical community seemingly ignore us.
Not all media out there supports us or accurately reports the facts of Lyme Disease. This video is one of the good ones. While it describes both sides of the controversy, it also does not deny what so many of us go through, and acknowledges isolation and frustration of living with Lyme Disease. We encourage you to watch this and keep updated on other news. It is important to accurately and effectively educate yourself about Lyme Disease, so that, as Dana Paris says, you do "not go down this rabbit hole."
Ally Hilfiger says in this video, "If I could find the silver lining in my experience, it is to use my experience to benefit others." We at Lyme Warrior are living by that sentiment. Lyme Disease may have robbed us of many aspects of our life, but it does not have to take away our determination to help others, find answers, and fight for accurate research for diagnoses and treatments.
Please join our fight! You can follow us here on our website, on social media, and by signing up for our email newsletter.
