"I wish I'd had this smart, fearless, insightful handbook on my own journey through the Lyme thicket. From negotiating with schools to handling doctors and relatives to tending a sick child's physical and psychic pain, Sandra K. Berenbaum and Dorothy Kupcha Leland have covered it all in When Your Child Has Lyme Disease: A Parent's Survival Guide. The best advice ever -your copy of this book will end up dog-eared with highlights and margin notes, and you'll carry it everywhere."
"An invaluable resource.... This remarkable book is both a practical guide and emotional touchstone....If you have a child with Lyme, no matter where you and your family are on this journey, this guide can help." John McCormick, The Huffington Post
"The book opens with the authors' experiences with Lyme Disease: a mother seeking a diagnosis and a therapist stricken with Bell's Palsy, a well-known Lyme calling card. The chapters continue to blend the authors' different perspectives, weaving a narrative applicable to anyone touched by the disease. While personal, the book contains myriad facts and a top-down view of the disease and its current impact in the US. Because of professional dogmatism, poor detection, and even financial interests, Lyme Disease remains an ailment confined to the shadows, making sufferers (especially parents) reliant on social support as much as medical protocol. In this way, the title complements the growing online communities of afflicted and affected people. Sections tackle everything from diet and exercise to mitigating the disease's impact on a child's social well-being. It effectively straddles the de facto faith in mainstream medicine and the often more personal and intuitive insights of alternative medicine."
