Joy Pelletier Devins has a message for the world: Lyme sufferers are not crazy, and they are not alone. Lyme disease is the epidemic of our time, with 300,000 people diagnosed each year, though some Lyme experts would argue that the number is closer to one million.

Lyme disease is rarely discussed or even acknowledged in mainstream media, yet it can have a huge impact physically, mentally, socially and financially, and is more common than most people realize. Devins has made it her mission to stay positive and not allow Lyme to control her life, documented in her new book, “Lyme Whisperer: The Secret’s Out."

“After getting treatment for my Lyme, I’ve come back stronger than ever,” said Devins. “I want to inspire people with the defiance and hope that they may need to overcome their own challenges.”

In her book, Devins takes a creative approach in sharing her fight against Lyme, which includes “conversations” with Borrelia, the bacteria that causes the disease.

Devins is an avid runner, nutritionist, and mother of two, as well as a vice president with a degree in biochemistry. Her comeback and defiance against Lyme serves as inspiration for Lyme’s numerous silent sufferers.
