DARK DANCE-An interpretation of dreams destroyed by illness



Left bereft by undiagnosed Lyme-Borrelia Burgdorferi, my daughter Arianna's dream of a professional career as a dancer was crushed. She pushed through her personal pain to film this video.

 

Many tick infections, like many other bacterial infections, pass the blood brain barrier and can cause depression, anxiety, OCD and other mental illnesses.
