The DFW area Lyme Disease Support Group invites you to a FREE public showing of the Tribeca Film Festival award winning documentary Under Our Skin this Saturday, August 23, 2008 at 1:00 p.m. at The Vine Fellowship, 5229 Kelly Elliott Road, Arlington, TX 76017.
Chronic Lyme disease is the most under diagnosed and misdiagnosed disease today and is an emerging epidemic in the United States and Canada. Many Lyme patients were misdiagnosed with illnesses such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Juvenile Arthritis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Parkinsons, early Alzheimers and early ALS. The nymph stage of the tick is when most humans are bitten and is highly infective. The size of a nymph tick is no bigger than the period at the end of this sentence and is the reason why most people dont know theyve been bitten. Symptoms can show up fast, with a bang or very slowly and innocuously. Lyme can be transmitted sexually, in utero and through breast milk.
It is so important that we bring awareness to the public of this devastating, debilitating disease and the effect it has on patients lives, their families and their careers. Please help us get the word out!!
Under Our Skin
A dramatic tale of microbes, medicine and money, this eye-opening film investigates the untold story of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS. Each year thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, told that their symptoms are "all in their head." Following the stories of patients and physicians as they battle for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our health care system and its ability to cope with a silent terror under our skin.
