Episode 13 Show Notes – David Skidmore, Cartoonist, Lyme Loonies
Dave Skidmore was bitten in 2009 noticing the bulls-eye rash after a family excursion. Although he was treated right away, his symptoms reappeared after his prescribed 20 days of doxycycline. This began a series of doctors visits that lasted two years, before he was properly diagnosed.
As a result of his struggles with Lyme, and his frustrations with being unable to receive proper treatment, Dave was inspired to create a series of cartoons called Lyme Loonies, which has gained popularity in the Lyme community and was picked up by ILADS to raise awareness for Lyme.
