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.

        Sandra, where did you see Behind the Eightball? I know they sell the DVD for $20 on facebook but is there ayhrnewe else (preferably cheaper)? Also, you hit the nail on the head about patients generally have their spastic fits at home . I am slammed into a wheelchair because of my Lyme and it’s awkward and so hard to get around so the docs never get to see that part.

    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,

    I won’t even comment on the meicadl stooge from Johns Hopkins. It’s people like him that need a nice dose of the Lyme bacteria so they could see first hand what the rest of us are dealing with. No mention of co infections or alternative treatment. No mention of the myriad of symptoms beyond chronic fatigue and arthritis. Such a terriblt weak forum to discuss such a rampant and ignored disease. The day will come when Lyme can longer longer be ignored or covered up. Hopefully it won’t be too long.
