Kristofferson’s long-undiagnosed battle with Lyme disease

Kris Kristofferson, still crooning and gorgeous at 80, is a Country Music Hall of Famer who ranks among the most versatile of American talents. He’s been a Golden Gloves boxer, a Rhodes scholar, a college football player, an acclaimed actor, a military officer, a helicopter pilot, a Grammy-winner, a self-described screw-up and an icon.

This is what we all need.. a recovery that doesn’t drag on for yrs or decades. There is so much more going on than just the Lyme with so many of us,and that’s why it’s so important to submit your info to the Lyme Data study.

I was prescibed a steroid to treat my (Facial) Bell’s Palsey from a Lime Disease tic bite in 1990. After 30 days I had no more symptoms, but I’m still crazy. “I’d trade all of my tomorrows, for a single yesterday.”
