*Under Our Skin, a documentary film: http://www.underourskin.com Also can be watched online at hulu.com

A gripping tale of microbes, medicine & money, UNDER OUR SKIN exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most serious and controversial epidemics of our time. Each year, thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are all in their head. Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of the health care system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients.

SUPPORT GROUPS

 

Lyme Disease Network Support Groups: this one is kinda cool because you click through location prompts until you find a support group close to you (i realize that for many of you, close might be too far away). there are even links to support groups in countries outside the u.s. and canada.                                    http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/
