Author Talk - Lyme Madness with Lori Dennis
Chronic Lyme disease is a complicated, confusing, and terrifying abyss—a black hole of human suffering, conflicting views, widespread corruption, and unrelenting medical navigation. Lyme Madness chronicles the author’s and adult son’s medical odyssey while capturing the current landscape of immeasurable suffering, twisted politics and medical madness that ensues worldwide. It provides a platform for the many voices of chronic Lyme sufferers, caregivers, and activists, along with the very few doctors and politicians all fighting for awareness, support and justice around the globe.
Lori Dennis, M.A., is a Registered Psychotherapist in private practice with a focus on depression, anxiety, grief, adhd, interpersonal conflict, and more. Her current focus is to publish her book Lyme Madness™ -- due out this summer -- and to create a network of Lyme-literate therapists to support chronic Lyme sufferers worldwide.
This program is co-sponsored by Lyme Connection and the Library and is also part of the Noreen L. Papa - Mothers: Live Your Life series.
