Chronic Lyme on Dr. Phil today

Deadly Consequences

Dr. Phil’s guests say they’re dealing with serious illnesses that could have deadly outcomes. ...  former model Stephanie Vostry, 25, says that she suffers from constant pain and seizures caused by what some doctors believe to be chronic Lyme disease, and others wonder if she's faking. With natural medicine providing minimal relief, hear how she says she's turned to self-medicating to dull her pain. Plus, chronic Lyme disease hits close to home for a Dr. Phil staff member and a San Diego weathercaster.

The blurb above was taken from the Dr. Phil website. The show might be online at this link: after it airs.
Or try this link for clips of the show.

==> Added later: the uncensored discussion after Dr Phil's show. At around the mark for 1:18 he mentions a key element that was left out of the show because of time constraints. The link is

Meanwhile, our plans for the Lyme Disease Awareness day are going ahead! We still hope to get more sponsors to help with T-shirts, prizes and the like. Every little bit helps and adds up in the end. Many people said they want to take part. One family will be visiting from BC (British Columbia, Canada's province on the west coast of the continent), so we can truly say we're covering Canada at the Lyme Walk in Brampton!

Yesterday I had notification that the city of Hamilton will add my request to proclaim May as Lyme Disease Awareness month, to their agenda. A large group of people will be coming from Hamilton and surroundings to take part in the walk.

Yesterday I was invited to talk to a group of women at a church. They were flabbergasted that we struggle so to get treatment, and that doctors usually don't know how to diagnose, test or treat for Lyme disease. They are planning to launch letter-writing campaigns. Thank you, ladies, and also for the monetary support that will go to help out with the Lyme Day! 

I'm so grateful for all the offers of help, the people passing on flyers and talking to their families about this disease, and for all the support. Thank you!
