Julie Comble, from Paris, France, was told she was lazy and crazy by her father and doctors after failing to be properly diagnosed with Lyme disease.
Julie was sick for years during her teenage years with debilitating chronic pain and was even put on morphine just so she could go to school.
Julie suffered from Lyme carditis (heart block), neurological Lyme, and many other Lyme symptoms.
Despite these wide-ranging and serious symptoms, Julie was only diagnose with fibromyalgia and mental health conditions by her countless doctors before getting a proper Lyme disease diagnose many years later.
Julie was told was told by countless doctors Lyme disease doesn’t exist in France. She was also told by other doctors that persistent chronic Lyme disease is not real.
Her doctors would not even acknowledge Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome, which is now recognized by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States.
Clearly, Lyme disease awareness is just as bad in France as it is here in the states.
Lyme disease is a global pandemic and people are suffering all over the world – many of whom don’t even know they have Lyme disease.
Please share this post or any Lyme awareness post to help raise awareness and bring desperately needed attention to the severity of tick-borne illnesses.
