Lyme In South Carolina – Holly’s Story

A Lyme friend recently wrote to me and asked if I could post this video and her story on my blog. So here it is. Her name is Holly Roesing and she is from SurfSide Beach, South Carolina. She has been suffering from Lyme disease for 7 years and her story below and in the video above may sound very familiar to you.You can find Holly on Facebook if you would like to message her.

Thank you for sharing Holly the more we get in the media the better. Hope you find some relief soon Holly and all my best to you and your family. Stay strong and keep fighting. – Bryan (Lyme Inside)

Holly’s story from WPDE News Channel 15 Web Site:

Holly Roesing knows the long-lasting effect a tick bite can have. She has Lyme disease, after she was bitten in 2005 by a tick that tested positive for the disease in South Carolina.

Her doctor put her on antibiotics for three weeks, and at first she was fine. But over the next few years, Holly suffered through a series of debilitating problems, including chest pain, extreme joint pain, and non-stop headaches.

A year and half ago, she suffered a mini stroke.

Holly wants more awareness for her disease. Most ticks in our area carry Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but as Holly can attest, they can carry Lyme Disease too. She wants the state to promote May as Lyme Disease Awareness Month.

This year, we’re expected to have more ticks than normal because of the weather. While staying on trails and wearing light-colored clothing are important, you also need to do a body check when you come in from the woods or anywhere you may have come in contact with a tick.

Dr. Phil “Deadly Consequences” Aired on April 13, 2012

 

I will have to say I was a little nervous and skeptical about the Lyme disease episode being viewed by millions. I was hoping it wasn’t one-sided and showing the IDSA as the victor. I just finished watching the episode and although I wish more information was exposed on the show such as coinfections, it was still a win for us Lymies.

I applaud Dr. Phil for exposing the world to Chronic Lyme disease. Chronic or Late-Stage Lyme is all too real and a living nightmare. It will change lives in the worst way and break the strongest person down. Thank you Dr. Phil for educating the public and exposing our suffering. I hope to see more media coverage of Lyme disease in the future.

A HUGE thank you to Brooke Landau, Stephanie Vostry, Dr. Phil’s staff member and Chitra Bhakti, MD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor/ LLMD).
