Lyme Disease Is No Fun: Let’s Get Well!

Does your child have Lyme disease? Does he or she feel alone and not know what to expect from family and friends? In line with the Lyme Disease Association’s long tradition of helping children, it has published a book for children 8-12 who have Lyme disease. Entitled Lyme Disease Is No Fun: Let’s Get Well!, the book is written by Mary Wall MS Ed, CCLS, a Columbia graduate student, and is edited by Colleen M. Smith, a peer-review medical journal production editor and Johns Hopkins grad─each has battled Lyme disease as a child. Author Amy Tan has written the back cover note.

Ms. Wall wrote the book because of her own experiences with the disease. “I couldn’t understand why the doctors thought I would want to miss almost two entire school years and pretend to be in pain. I remember being at my sickest point and sitting in a wheelchair in front of a doctor. He looked at me, shook his head and said, ’Mary, why don’t you want to go to school?’ I was so frustrated, all I could do was cry.”

The book presents a brief history of Lyme disease and ticks, diagnosis and treatment, missing school due to Lyme disease, and feelings about the disease. Information is included on LDA’s LymeAid 4 Kids fund which has available monies for children with Lyme without insurance coverage for the disease. Proceeds from the sale of the books will to go to support the national nonprofit LDA’s Lyme disease programs─education, prevention, research funding, and patient support.




Lyme Disease Update: Science, Policy, & Law

Lyme Disease Update Now Available Lyme Disease Association, Inc., (LDA) announces the publication of Lyme Disease Update: Science, Policy, & Law, the first Lyme disease resource book of its kind. Marcus Cohen, noted columnist for the Townsend Letter for Physicians & Patients is the author of the Update. NY Times Bestselling Author Amy Tan has written the Preface from her personal perspective on the difficulty of getting diagnosed and appropriately treated for Lyme disease. The book is a must for busy physicians who lack time to read the peer-review on Lyme disease and for patients who have been refused treatment or even a Lyme diagnosis, the doctor perhaps citing a negative test (the book documents seronegativity) or the patients’ lack of conformity to the CDC criteria, which are meant for surveillance purposes only─the reference is cited in the Update.

 

The Foreword is written by Brian Fallon, MD, MPH, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and now Director, Columbia University Lyme and Tick-Borne Diseases Research Center.  In it, he states, “Carefully referenced and written by Marcus Cohen in a style that is accessible to both the medical professional and the educated non-medical person, this document provides overviews and digests of important research findings from the last few decades…This Update…does do an excellent job of providing the reader with an opportunity to learn about some of the pivotal studies in Lyme disease and about areas of research that need to be more aggressively pursued.”

 

In the first section, M. Cohen has compiled a digest of the peer-reviewed literature surrounding chronic Lyme disease from diagnosis and treatment to neuroborreliosis, atypical forms of Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, and other tick-borne diseases. Besides those in the digest form, he presents additional readings in each area.

 

In the second section of the book, Mr. Cohen has summarized a brief history of federal and state activities which have affected the course of Lyme disease. It includes accounts of meetings with various officials, excerpts from letters and reports, and whenever possible in politically active states, a state-by-state description of the history of the Lyme disease movement there, including legislation introduced or passed and officials who have been supportive. Various Lyme disease groups and their activities are mentioned.

 

The last section touches on legal issues which affect Lyme patients and physicians. Representative cases are included where ever possible. A glossary follows. The Update editor is Patricia Smith, LDA President.

 

The back cover contains quotes from NJ Congressman Christopher Smith, CT Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, author Denise Lang, Political Advocates Jim & Sarah Brady, Actress MaryMc Donnell, and the Jimmy Carter Family Scheduler, Pat Slaughter.

 

The book is a must for busy physicians who lack time to read the peer-review on Lyme disease and for patients who have been refused treatment or even a Lyme diagnosis, the doctor perhaps citing a negative test (the book documents seronegativity) or the patients’ lack of conformity to the CDC criteria, which are meant for surveillance purposes only─the reference is cited in the Update. Patients planning an insurance appeal will also find this reference book useful, as will those struggling to understand the complexities of this disease.
