Jordan chats with Ally Hilfiger, the author of Bite Me: How Lyme Disease Stole My Childhood, Made Me Crazy, and Almost Killed Me and a huge advocate for all of the warriors out there struggling with Chronic Lyme, late stage neurological Lyme disease, and chronic illness in general. As someone who lived through the pain and the struggle firsthand for MANY years, Ally has a much-appreciated perspective on Lyme – and Jordan has a lot of questions! But don’t worry: this episode isn’t a downer at all!! It’s a very positive, lighthearted, and uplifting look at how we CAN heal from chronic illness, as Ally has.
The ladies discuss Ally’s descent into chronic Lyme disease and the many years she went undiagnosed, being misdiagnosed with everything under the sun. Eventually, Ally had to be institutionalized because no one could understand what was plaguing her, and it was there that she was finally diagnosed with late stage Lyme disease. Her journey is fascinating, inspiring, and a true reality for many who live with Lyme on a daily basis.
Ally + Jordan also get into Ally’s time on one of the very first reality TV shows (MTV’s Rich Girls), growing up in the Hilfiger fashion dynasty, meeting her now husband and having her beautiful daughter Harley, and the new clothing line that Ally is working on right now!
