 Seven years later, I was diagnosed with chronic neurologic Lyme disease and coinfections of Babesia and Bartonella” Levy (2016).

Abstract:

I was told that I was a moody teenage girl in need of antidepressants and psychotherapy, that I didn’t stretch enough before and after sports so I should see a physical therapist, that I was tired because school started so early, that it was all in my head, and that I was just a clumsy person who should stop complaining. Seven years later, I was diagnosed with chronic neurologic Lyme disease and coinfections of Babesia and Bartonella.
