Description

According to the National Institute of Health, Lyme disease, a bacterial infection that is spread through the bite of one of several types of ticks, may now be a virulent epidemic in the U.S. producing as many as 300,000 to one million new cases per year. Yet since it was first discovered in 1982 its diagnosis and treatment has remained wrapped in controversy.




Lyme Rage is the true story of one family’s experience with the disease. Their harrowing journey begins when nine-year old Sophie develops symptoms that their family doctor cannot explain. When her symptoms worsen, and doctor after doctor refuses to treat her for a lack of diagnosis, her family is at a loss for what to do. The final disaster comes when Sophie collapses and is unable to walk. It is only when the family begins traveling a road without established medical markers that the seemingly miraculous happens and the family finds a doctor who is willing to treat Sophie that her rocky road to recovery can begin.

Mindy Haber LCSW, CASAC is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in the Hudson Valley where she lives with her family. Mindy offers information about her experiences with Lyme disease through her website www.lymeragebook.com.
