Episode 189: Simplicity is Power – an interview with Erin Reeves


Erin Reeves is a 27-year-old veteran of the Air Force reserves originally from Plymouth, Massachusetts. She is a medical technician, a published model, and a student. During her time in the military, she served as an Aerospace Medical Technician and after discharge she worked in a diverse set of medical environments. Ms. Reeves began to suffer from the symptoms of Lyme disease at the age of 12. The time between the onset of symptoms and diagnosis was 13 years, during which time she was treated by scores of doctors including a number of military doctors during her 6 years of military service. Ironically, Ms. Reeves was diagnosed when she was scanned with a diagnostic tool during a training. A colleague scanned her arm and discovered evidence of a Lyme co-infection that was later confirmed by her treating physician. Finally locating a diagnosis liberated Ms. Reeves from terrible anxiety and provided hope she would locate a plan to end her suffering.
