Lyme Madness by Author and Psychotherapist Lori Dennis
It has been said that Lyme patients are victimized in three ways. Once by the disease, twice by the doctor and a third time by family and friends who roll their eyes and walk away.
We dive into that reality with Lori Dennis who has an incredibly unique perspective on Lyme. As a professional she has patients who have chronic illnesses. But she also has the perspective of being a Mother to an adult son who has Lyme. As a professional she has seen the chaos, expense and longevity of Lyme disease and Lyme disease complex.
The reality is that in addition to fighting the illness, you are fighting socially, emotionally, and financially.

Lori Dennis, MA, RP, and author of LYME MADNESS, is a Registered Psychotherapist in private practice in Toronto, Canada. Ever since her adult son fell ill in the fall of 2012, her only focus has been to help him get well. Little did she know at the start of this medical odyssey just how deep and unending this rabbit hole would be. While helping her son navigate his medical journey from “no answers” to continued recovery, she was determined to write this book to help others navigate this long and arduous path from illness to wellness—the overwhelming and complicated trek that comes with having chronic Lyme disease. She was also determined to provide a platform for other Lyme sufferers to have their voices heard in an effort to end the madness. A madness where millions are suffering around the globe while mainstream medicine continues to turn its back on the sick and infirm.
