Tick Boot Camp’s guest today is Julieann Hartley. Ms. Hartley is a music therapist from New Hampshire. She had an extremely high fever in 2012 that was accompanied by a rash. Her father recognized her rash as the same one that he had when he was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Ms. Hartley’s doctor, the same one that treated her father for Lyme, told her that she just had a virus. But after that incident, her health deteriorated. She had extreme fatigue, joint pain, insomnia, and her bowels were paralyzed. Her naturopath begged her to submit to a Lyme test. Once she agreed, it came back positive. If you would like to learn more about how Ms. Hartley managed to graduate as the valedictorian of her college class and maintain a relationship with her future husband while battling Lyme, then tune in now!
