What separates this book from the dozens of other Lyme disease
books on the market? The answer: author Connie Strasheim's piercing
insight into not only the physical and medical challenges created by
Lyme disease, but also the emotional and lifestyle obstacles
experienced by Lyme sufferers.
In short, this book provides a complete road map to healing, and

trauma when dealing with disease. Connie's book addresses the more
subtle emotional and mental aspects of the illness, with a
"dash of humor to light the way."
According to James Schaller, M.D., author of the Foreword for the
book, "you will feel alive and hopeful as you read this
book." Allow the words of several other health care providers
