TOUCHED BY LYME: Huffington Post reviews my Lyme disease book
I’ve written other books before. But none that I am prouder of than the one I co-wrote with Sandy Berenbaum called When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent’s Survival Guide. It grew out of my family’s lived experience of Lyme–and my co-author’s work of helping many families survive their lives with Lyme.
So I am honored today to find that our book has struck a chord with Huffington Post columnist John McCormick, who also happens to be the parent of a child with Lyme disease.
As he writes in his review of our book:
When my son Will was first diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2009, my wife and I didn’t have a clue what Lyme was or what was in store for our family. For starters, we thought all Lyme cases could be cured with a short course of antibiotics. But when Will’s symptoms persisted after a three-week treatment, we were faced with an array of questions for which we had no answers.

And if you are so moved, I’d be thrilled if you’d leave a comment at the end of his Huffington Post blog. And please share it with your friends.

Thanks for explaining what is in it. I look forward to reading this some day.

Great job. I’m seeing more and more families where multiple people are infected. This adds a challenging dimension to an already challenging disease. I can’t recommend Lyme/MSIDS support groups enough for parents who are climbing this mountain with their children.

Ms Leland; I have been studying Lyme and its facets for over a year and have found it all more than just revealing. i am a retired educator and am applying my education and experiences toward expanding the knowledge-based population to better include those with outdoor activities which might bring them into exposure. I have applied my increasing knowledge to members of organizations such as those who hunt, fish, study birds and all others of my contacts. I am hoping to assist others in avoidance and recovery. Thank you for your input.
