    "It turned out that Lyme disease was perhaps the most complicated infection we had ever seen." p 10, from preface by Neil Nathan, MD "I know that I'm not the only one who struggles with feelings of self-pity. How many thousands of others are sidelined by the debilitating effects of Lyme disease?

How many thousands of others are sidelined by the debilitating effects of Lyme disease? Multitudes hover on sofas and beds like me, too drained to do anything more than just the bare necessities of daily functioning. In fact, some can't even do that. Anyone living with chronic illness that imposes severe limitations must experience similar feelings of disappointment, frustration, fear, sadness, and envy. I am not alone." (p 220) This book is 3/4 memoir, and just a small section on the "nuts and bolts" of Lyme disease, mostly giving resource information for some of the healing therapies the author used. As an informational book, though, this was pretty useless... readers would be better off reading a separate, more in-depth book for a better picture of Lyme disease in its many manifestations and a wider range of treatment possibilities. As a memoir, it was valuable for what it was: one person's subjective story of healing from Lyme disease. In case the subtitle didn't give it away, I'll say that much of the memoir focuses on the spiritual side of healing - in this case, it was very "new age," with an emphasis on "finding healing within yourself" or drawing strength from "whatever you call your god." The author details some strange "out of body" experience, and mentions a witch-doctor who prophesied about her life... that kind of stuff. (I'm a Christian, so I can't get behind this spiritual mumbo-jumbo. I believe there is only one true God, and only He can heal.) A couple other negatives: the writing is very flowery (why use one adjective or adverb when you can use seventeen?) and it seemed like Makris was trying too hard to be "profound"; the names of God and Jesus are used in vain. The chapters are mercifully short, which is great for those of us suffering from brain fog and concentration issues. (Though, with the format of the book, there are a good 40 or so pages that are completely blank - what a huge waste of paper!) The strength of the book is simply that Makris describes accurately the emotional turmoil one experiences when chronically ill, and especially ill without finding answers. I can't really recommend it, though. It just wasn't good enough for that.

    Great resource for anyone suffering from Lyme Disease or wishing to understand or prevent. A combination of memoir and resource book, a success story worth reading and having compassion for those going through such struggle with any chronic disease.

    Lovely memoir about her experience with Lyme disease. Would have loved just a little more information in the second half about the disease, what to expect, different case studies maybe? Just a little more meat with the nuts and bolts of the disease.

    Makris writes with beauty and authenticity. I have Lyme Disease. She helped me to understand it and also have a companion along this difficult journey.
