All I can say is WOW! shocked I cried like a big baby. I have the head jerking like the girl on there, Mandy(I think that's her name), but mine is not as constant. My head jerks a little harder than hers too. Maybe hers is more like shaking...I don't know but it scared me. I don't want to get that bad! It freaked me out when she stopped breathing. My God! She's alot better now but had to go through hell to get there.

Did anyone see the end where the doctor said that there was a biofilm around the spirochettes and that why we had chronic lyme. I guess the biofilm protects them. I hope this doctor is at the meeting on July 30th because he could make a huge difference in the treatment for chronic Lyme.

If you haven't watched this DVD yet, try to get it before they take it off the website. It is A-MAY-ZING!!

Hi CajunGrl.  I agree it is a great film. 

For those who don't know, if you go to the "Under Our Skin" homepage and click on "Film" and then "Characters,"  the main people in the film are listed.  At the bottom of some of the character descriptions, you can click on "Read an update..." on some characters to see how they are doing since the film was made.  The link for the character page is http://www.underourskin.com/film_characters.html

Yeah CG , we were talking about the biofilm a few weeks ago Dr. Alan Mcdonald Pathologist he has bn around researching for so many years and this is the fruit of it all ,and yet it may have come around faster and more easily with more heads together trieing to figure this out.
God! I get so mad!!!!!
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

I know. I want to watch it again too. The only thing that seems to stay in my mind is the girl Mandy and the Doctor that discovered the biofilm.
