Episode 183: Pastoring Lyme - an interview with Dan Price
Lyme disease graced Pastor Dan with empathy and a second career as a photographer
Dan Price is a 42-year-old married father serving as the Executive Pastor of a church located in Bend, Oregon. The Price family began a relationship with Lyme disease in 2012 when Pastor Dan began to suffer a long-term fever and fatigue that progressed to brain fog, short term memory loss, anxiety, and depression. He treated with 5 doctors before he was diagnosed with Lyme disease. After his diagnosis, his symptoms continued to progress and Pastor Dan lost hope that he would heal from Lyme disease until 2 members of the Lyme social media community recommended a doctor practicing outside of Detroit, Michigan. Shortly after Pastor Dan’s health began to improve, his wife and family “rock” was diagnosed with acute Lyme disease. Pastor Dan suspects that he unknowingly infected his wife with Lyme through sexual contact. The final chapter of the Pastor’s healing journey required EMDR therapy with a “brain injury focused therapist.” Today, Pastor Dan and his wife have attained remission from Lyme disease.
