Book Review: "A Twist of Lyme: Battling a Disease That Doesn't Exist" by Andrea H. Caesar
"A Twist of Lyme: Battling a Disease That Doesn't Exist" by Andrea H. Caesar is an eye-opening book that documents Caesar's journey through life with lyme disease.
Technological advances in medicine have made it easier to understand and diagnose Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses. Andrea H. Caesar has been suffering from chronic Lyme disease since the age of 11, but she wasn’t actually diagnosed until the age of 36. This is a chronicle of her physical and mental struggle during diagnosis and treatment, including frustrating encounters with doctors who refused to accept the disease’s existence. It is a moving story full of empathy and hope for anyone who has also been affected by the disease.
