My friend Emily Wallace, 23, has been sick for over a year without a solid diagnosis. One doctor said it might be Lyme Disease, but the qualifiers for Lyme differ from state to state. She is from Connecticut, but moved to New York to start her acting career. Both states have a narrow set of specifications for what qualifies as Lyme. She ended up with “Maybe Lyme.”
She was given prescriptions and more prescriptions, antibiotics and supplements. She was given everything except answers. The sickness only progressed in limbo. Now it seems that many of her symptoms point towards cancer. Hodgkins. The day before her biopsy, she spoke about her fears of waiting and where she puts her mind in the meantime.
