NEW LYME PUBLICATIONS
Most of us now know someone who has Lyme disease, here in the Hudson Valley. Most of us also realize how severe it can be, particularly when not diagnosed early, or treated comprehensively.
When I first started to see kids with Lyme in my psychotherapy practice in 1991, there was little information available to help kids and families understand this often-devastating illness, to help them cope with it. Since that time, there's been a lot of progress in Lyme education, both locally (Hudson Valley Lyme Disease Association, and stopticks.org), and nationally, through some of our fine organizations.
I'm writing to let the public know about two outstanding resources, both available for purchase on-line at a nominal fee, and I highly recommend both publications.
Although meant for patients, these publications can also help all of us in the community understand what Lyme disease is about, so that we can lend our support to those families who are struggling.
