"Fox and Friends" Gretchen Carlson wasn’t on vacation for the two weeks she was gone, she was battling Lyme Disease. While this hasn’t made mainstream headlines, she did mention it in passing on "Fox and Friends" live. Gretchen lives in Connecticut, which is the state that had the first diagnosed case of Lyme Disease decades ago. It also remains one of the most active states for new cases of Lyme Disease. She also tweeted about her illness on the "Fox and Friends" Twitter Page.
I watch Fox and Friends every morning as I drink my coffee and knew she had been off the show for quite a while and one day last week when she was back she was having trouble thinking of something and she tapped her head and said “Lyme Brain” and I knew then right away, most probably had know idea. I thought I would Google it today and indeed she was down with Lyme disease.
