"David Skidmore's new book "Lyme Loonies" is a creatively crafted and vividly illustrated journey into the truths and myths of living with Lyme Disease."
Life is either a comedy or tragedy. “Lyme Loonies” is a little bit of both. In the first cartoon book about Lyme disease, creator David Skidmore captures and illuminates the struggles faced by those with Lyme. The cartoons are a way of expressing hope, humor and revolt at the tug-of-war in which the Lyme community find themselves regarding diagnosis, treatment, education, funding, prevention, public apathy and a cure.
“Lyme Loonies” is a book created in solidarity with those familiar with Lyme disease. Readers will laugh and maybe even cry, definitely shake their head, then most likely smile. Readers’ palms also might hit their face a little too hard a couple times, but a sense of relief will follow knowing that they are not alone. It is a book to share with family, friends and those who are unaware of Lyme, because education and awareness will bring the change we all want, need and deserve.
If laughter really is the best medicine, then a daily dose of Lyme Loonies is just what readers need.
