The deer tick that carries Lyme.

Ask people to list scary diseases, and there's a good chance Lyme disease will show up on the list. 

Not just because of its many and varied symptoms, but because it can be so hard to diagnose correctly. 

In Andrea Caesar's case, it took 25 years.  She wrote of her experience in A Twist of Lyme: Battling a Disease That "Doesn't Exist."

Andrea joined us in 2014 to talk about her long journey with the affliction.  We revisit that interview here.
