Welcome to my blog! This is a place of information and hope for fellow Canadians who are suffering from Lyme disease. I want to share with you the knowledge I have gained during my fight with this debilitating, frightening, and misunderstood illness. I hope you will be blessed.

Interview with Jim Wilson of CanLyme on the CBC

The CBC strikes again - in a good way!  If you have followed my blog, you may know that CBC radio is close to my heart because it was an interview I heard on their station in 2010 that helped me to self-diagnose my Lyme disease.  The CBC continues to shine a light on Lyme.  Today, the CBC aired a 1 hour segment on Lyme disease with guest Jim Wilson, founder of the Canadian Lyme Foundation, or CanLyme.  They also took numerous calls from Ontarians afflicted by Lyme disease.  The majority of those people, like myself, have had to travel to the U.S. for treatment.  Jim Wilson, a former Lyme sufferer, is so knowledgeable, and a very calm, rational speaker.  His foundation has helped to provide guidance to Elizabeth May's team in preparing the bill.  The segment also featured a short interview with an infectious disease specialist from Toronto who pretty much toed the old party line - the one we're trying so desperately to change!!!
