I was flipping through a September 2019 issue of the Atlantic magazine and was suprised to encounter a very well-written, thoughtful, and comprehensive article about what it is like to live with chronic Lyme disease.

The author has experienced significant, though not complete, recovery with antibiotics, including antibiotics that treat persister bacteria, and has most of her normal life back, though she has occasional Lyme outbreaks that require repeated treatment.

The article told it how it is -- the rawness and intensity of the physical suffering, traditional medicine's skepticism and disrespect, if not open hositility, toward any illness of which it is ignorant, and the necessity, of anyone who has it, of waging a personal, no-holds barred crusade against the illness to find relief wherever it may be found.
