Lyme Disease Survivor Daryl Hall, of Hall & Oates, Interviewed

If you own the DVD of the Lyme disease documentary, “Under Our Skin”, in the Bonus Footage section of the DVD, there is a powerful interview of Lyme disease sufferer Amy Tan, best known as the author of “The Joy Luck Club”. In the interview, Amy Tan speaks of how she knows many public figures and celebrities who have been touched by Lyme, and how many of them will not come forward to raise more awareness for Lyme disease for fear that their careers would suffer if others knew they have a chronic illness. However, Daryl Hall of the ever-popular band Hall & Oates has been speaking out for the past few years about his battle with chronic Lyme disease. Here is a great interview of Daryl Hall by newscaster Brooke Landau (she too has also struggled with Lyme disease).

    I just watched “Under Our Skin” PBS. I can not believe the doctors taking agressive treatment/relief actions can lose their medical license to practice by doctors being paid by the medical insurance industry. We have forgot Polio and what we can do when we care more about life than making a profit.

    It makes me feel a little better knowing that Mr. Hall has experienced the same things I do with my Lyme. One day to the next you never know how you will feel or think. This disease has taken away who I am. It’s the hardest thing in the world to deal with when you lose your identity. God Speed to all Lyme Victims. Thank you Mr. Hall for confirmation that I am not crazy!

    Hi! I am so happy I found your site. My husband has tested positive twice for lyme disease since July 2011. It’s been a challenge since he usually is such an energetic and healthy guy.

    Thank you for refering the documentary. We are definitely going to watch it.

    I luckily don’t have Lyme disease, but this is how I am coping as a wife:

    I will be telling my husband to go on your site because he is so confused about the doctor’s advice, symptoms, etc.

    Cheers,
