TOUCHED BY LYME: My conversation with “Lyme Time Podcast with Ali”
Alicia White suffered from bizarre, often painful physical symptoms for years. Consulting numerous doctors, the Southern California resident received many conflicting test results and (mis)diagnoses, but no real answers.
Finally, one of her medical practitioners put the puzzle pieces together and recognized that Lyme disease was an important part of what was going on with her. (Along with other problematic stuff. Isn’t that usually the case?)
As Alicia continues on her healing path, she has started a podcast to help other people who may be searching for answers like she was for so many years. It’s called “Lyme Time Podcast with Ali” and I was honored to be interviewed on it last week.
In a wide-ranging discussion, we talked about my experience as the mother of a daughter with Lyme, and how the illness can affect the whole family. We chatted about how all that led to my own involvement with Lyme disease advocacy, as well as to the book I co-authored, “When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide.”
We also spoke about the work of LymeDisease.org and its important MyLymeData research project.
