Episode 153: Tending the emotional side of Lyme disease.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How for Susan the worst part of being sick with Lyme Disease was the isolation
  • The launch of the Lyme Brave foundation, a national support resource center for patient
  • Why Susan is passionate about making sure Lyme patients and caregiver stories are heard

Meet This Week’s Guest, Susan Pogorzelski:

Susan was born in Pennsylvania, where she graduated from college with a BA in English. In 2012 she was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme Disease after being sick with little explanation for nearly 15 years. After being in remission for nearly a year, Susan relapsed in 2015. Her new book, The Last Letter is closely based on her own struggles with Lyme Disease.

I practice acupuncture in Clinton, NY, a small village in the geographical center of the state. Once I became aware of Lyme and other insect carried diseases, I started seeing my chronic patients in an entirely different light. Join me as I speak with the the most fascinating people in the Lyme community. If you know someone I should interview, let me know.
