One of the most controversial illnesses in the history of medicine, Lyme disease may be the fastest growing infectious disease in the United States. Yet each year thousands are misdiagnosed – many of them told that their symptoms are "all in their head." This upcoming documentary investigates the shocking human, medical, and political dimensions of Lyme disease, an emerging epidemic destroying countless numbers of lives. A case study of the dangers of the confluence of money and medicine, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of our healthcare system and its inability to cope with a biological terror under our skin.

It is my understanding that on June 19 “Under Our Skin” will have it’s theatrical release. I had and probably still have Lyme Disease, I got it in 1992 when I lived in Connecticut, however, I am not convinced there is any real connection to Morgellons. I know many do, but I do not for reasons I that I cannot say. I will say that it made me very sick, I thought for sure I’d die and after years of antibiotics I said the hell with it, went off the antibiotics and prepared to die, however, I worked on my health and gradually got better and better until Morgellons hit.
