Episode 80: A Lymie from Paree - an interview with Daisy White
After 21 years of being sick, Daisy White was referred to a doctor who finally properly diagnosed her with Lyme Disease
Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Daisy White. Growing up, Ms. White traveled all over the world, visiting places like Italy and Spain. She spent time in tick endemic communities on Long Island and in Massachusetts. She also experienced weird health problems throughout her childhood. All of that worsened when Ms. White took a trip to Africa in college. She got terribly sick with dysentery, and by her senior year, thought that she was going to die. Ms. White was struggling to hold down food and had terrible pain all over her body. In her mid-40s, due to dental struggles, she was referred to a doctor who finally diagnosed her with Lyme disease. If you would like to learn more about how Daisy White is using her tick disease journey to be an advocate for others, then tune in now!
