Description

Chronic Lyme disease is a complicated, confusing, and terrifying abyss—a black hole of human suffering, conflicting views, widespread corruption, and unrelenting medical navigation. Lyme Madness chronicles the author’s and adult son’s medical odyssey while capturing the current landscape of immeasurable suffering, twisted politics and medical madness that ensues worldwide. It provides a platform for the many voices of chronic Lyme sufferers, caregivers, and activists, along with the very few doctors and politicians all fighting for awareness, support and justice around the globe. It is a bold testament to the undeniable existence of this medical nightmare where millions are suffering and few are listening. The voices and pleas for medical acknowledgement of this widely negated disease are powerful, compelling, and a clarion call-to-action for those in power to put an end to the political roadblocks that have kept chronic Lyme disease in the shadows for more than forty years.

Patrick recommended your book. It is the very best book written from our point of view. I''ve only been officially diagnosed with Lyme for a little over a month. I have suspected Lyme for about 6 months, when I started messaging my cousin. I realized, that all my weird orphan syndromes and symptoms could be summed up with only one diagnosis.

I am going to the only ILADS doctor in Houston. But, thanks to you, I now, have a book describing my 8 year journey into madness. Thank you so much!

.The quote, that resounded with me the most was, "When did you get your medical degree?" 😫 I have heard this from my husband and daughter for quite a while now. They just don''t understand, that you have to do your own medical research in order to find a treatment, that works for you. I am going to make them read this book, so they will, finally, understand what I''m going through!!!!

By the way, I NEVER give reviews.....BUT, THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL BOOK FOR ALL LYME PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES!

A Mother''s Impassioned Plea for Better Treatment of Lyme Patients

Lori Dennis''s story is crazy--unless you''ve fallen down the rabbit hole into Lymeland, as she calls it. Then it all makes sense.

She was transported to Lymeland when her son Matt became mysteriously ill after graduating from college and starting a new job. At first everyone thought it was just anxiety about this new transition in his life. But then it became apparent to him and his parents, although not his doctors, that something was really wrong. 20+ doctors later they finally had answers, although not necessarily a cure.

"Lyme Madness" is partly Lori and Matt''s story, part the stories of other Lyme patients, and part a history of Lyme disease in North America. Dennis is from Toronto, while her son was living and being treated in New York, so she has witnessed the poor treatment of Lyme patients in the US--and their even worse neglect in Canada.

Like many Americans, I often envy what seems like the idyllic health care conditions in Canada, but tragically, for poorly understood conditions such as Lyme disease, the Canadian socialized health care system is even worse than the US''s patchwork, profit-driven non-system. Both turn their backs on patients and condemn them to a life, and sometimes death, of appalling suffering. However, the government-provided health care in Canada is even less responsive to Lyme patients'' needs than that of the US, with a lot of active denial of the existence of Lyme disease in Canada, despite its prevalence in New York and New England, just across the border.

"Lyme Madness" is an impassioned plea for more awareness and better treatment of Lyme disease and its patients. Dennis is rightfully very angry over what happened to her son, so much so that people who have not (yet) been deported to Lymeland may find her passion off-putting. She also discusses controversial or unproven treatment approaches, some of the conspiracy theories, such as that of the bioweapons research facility on Plum Island accidentally or intentionally releasing the disease, and the problems with the Lyme vaccine and the interactions between Lyme disease and the flu vaccine. This may also make strict adherents to mainstream medicine uncomfortable, but, as she points out, Lyme patients are not given better options. The mainstream has at best turned its back on us, and at worst engaged in an aggressive program of gaslighting and abuse, often using "mental health" as its weapon of choice. It is therefore particularly welcome that Dennis, a psychologist, is speaking out against the (mis)use of mental health diagnoses and treatments on Lyme patients. I''m not sure how many doubters this book is going to convince, but it has an important message and it''s good to get more voices of patients and their families out there.

Just finished this book. It is by far the best book I''ve found on Lyme Disease to date. I''ve found so many things I need to follow up on in it. It has a list of all her sources at the end of it. It also has a complete reading list that I plan on reviewing and ''more than likely'' add to my Lyme Disease collection of books. I hope that her son is doing well and thank her very much for taking time out of her days for writing it. I only wish I would have the opportunity to speak with her some time but realize that probably will never happen. Having (this past summer) having my late-stage Lyme continue to get worse this book gives me sources to try to find more help.

This book is ostensibly about the author''s son, but much of it focuses on the mother''s emotions, ad infinitum. I''m not saying there isn''t a place for addressing the devastating effect of chronic illness on family members, but I was hoping for more of the sufferer''s perspective. After several chapters heavily weighted toward her angst, I had to put the book aside. When I finish it, I will, in fairness, update this review.

I''m only into this journey for 5 months. Lori and her son are way ahead of me. And I know with my just starting research that I''m dealing with an iceberg. This book was up close and personal. It had so much factual information, but yet the author showed the human, vulnerability of her son and herself.
I am grateful for Lori and her willingness to share her story. Also moved by her passionate crusade to reach all of the doctors, organizations, etc who refuse to acknowledge and treat with urgency this vicious pandemic.
I''m giving the book 5 stars. I''m sure I''ll read it again. I learned and I''ll benefit from this knowledge in my own battle with Lyme and coinfections. Kudos to you Lori! Well done!
Thank you so much. God Bless you and Matt.

I just finished reading this book yesterday. My copy is quite colorful from all of the passages that I highlighted. As I was reading the book, I recommended it to many friends, and will continue to do so. Lori Dennis clearly "gets" it. Madness is the perfect word to describe this illness, as well as the struggle for diagnosis, treatments, and even just acknowledgment of this ravaging epidemic. Her writing touched my heart. Warrior moms are formidable as individuals; as a united group, we can, do, and will move mountains. I highly, highly recommend this book for anyone battling Lyme Disease, anyone who cares about someone battling Lyme Disease, and anyone who works in or will be working in the medical profession. Doctors especially need their eyes opened - and their hearts.

The phenomenal costs involved are absolutely absurd. There are more relevant sufferers and helpful shared information, via facebook. Thank you for the chance to review and share my point of view ;-)

My Fellow Readers,

As a person who is in a similar position to the author --it is a godsend to have this book.
We offer both perspectives on "Lyme Madness" - the afflicted and the one who sees it.
I am the one who sees it, and often want to spend my time and energy in ways that can help. Educating the public about the realities of this illness is up to the people in our position -- We can''t just leave the ones who suffer to battle alone. Her pen is her sword here, no question.

For my afflicted: My boyfriend - writer, composer, musician - he found solace in Lori''s writing. Her quotes, her experiences resonated with him and with myself. Lyme should be called the "Isolating Illness"; this book offers the truth, and in the truth-- a friend.

I want to get this book for friends and family members-- It is (as many here have indicated) a MUST read for anyone.

Thank You, Lori!

I haven''t finished this yet, but it''s a breath of fresh air in the field. Well written, well researched with suprising amount of practical detail leavened with personal narrative. And more voices need to be raised like Lori Dennis'' in terms of pointing our just how twisted our health insurance and medical fields are these days. It''s time they all woke up. As a Lymey, am not holding my breath however and like thousands of others am attempting to find relief and cure outside the mainstream which generally does more harm than good.

It’s common to describe a well-written novel as a “page turner” but when a book like non-fiction Lyme Madness is released into the world and you can relate so much to the journey the author has been on, it becomes one of those books you sacrifice sleep for. What a wonderful read, and fantastic resource. To have the history, the stories, the heartaches so eloquently tied together in one book is such a gift. Thank you for all of your hard work Lori Dennis! If you are a parent, auntie, grandparent, a doctor, or friend of someone struggling with Lyme disease, there isn’t a better book to explain the complexities and injustices of this disease. It will be your best resource. There are so many here in Canada and beyond whose lives are being altered in unimaginable ways and your support is critical to your loved ones. Reading Lyme Madness so you have a better understanding is the best thing you can do to know how best to assist. Highly recommended!

Lyme Madness reverberated through my soul with each turn of the page - it echoed my experience as a mother of a child diagnosed with Lyme Disease after many years of misdiagnosis. Lori Dennis offers a glimpse into the critical issues facing Lyme patients and families, and can help readers understand the "fantastical" world of Lyme - where you can rejoice in finally obtaining a correct diagnosis with hope for treatment only to met with the roadblocks of a Canadian medical community who is unwilling to adopt and support the science, they thwart your progress and treatment at every turn. If I was not living this nightmare, I would believe it to be a work of science fiction - but it is not FICTION - it is the reality of thousands of patients of suffering from Lyme disease across our planet.

Let''s face it, there are few who are not affected by Chronic Lyme Disease, whether directly or indirectly. Because of an ineffective protocol in the medical community, in treating or even acknowledging this horrid illness, this book needed to be written. Matt''s story (and that of his family) needed to be told! The world must wake up and realize Lyme Disease is real, it exists, and it is deadly! Lori Dennis puts it all out there for your consideration and education, in a detailed and often necessarily intense recounting of the experience, to date. I hope the journey continues on a positive path and further away from the dreaded rabbit hole. Definitely a must read!

As a fellow mother to a son with Chronic Lyme Disease, this book is at the top of my list of "must reads". Full of valuable information relevant to both the Lyme Community and the General Public. Widely misunderstood by the masses, Lori Dennis provides insight into the horrors of Lyme Disease within her own family and within families across Canada and across the globe. She masterfully intertwines cold hard facts with her own personal experiences, her voice is our voice. Thank you Lori Dennis for spreading awareness and truth.
