My Lyme Guide is dedicated to helping patients and their caregivers with the challenges of managing tick borne diseases. Marjorie MacArthur Veiga, a former Lyme disease patient and mother of a teenager with Lyme, provides consulting to aid families overwhelmed by the complexities of chronic illnesses.
In addition to consulting services, Mrs. Veiga--with input from her ILADS doctor--Sarah Fletcher, M.D., has developed a book that provides organization tools for patients and caregivers. My Lyme Guide is designed especially for parents and the children they care for, but can be used by any patient with a chronic illness.
The binder version of My Lyme Guide is no longer available due to production costs. The revised version of My Lyme Guide contains 22 charts, graphs, and forms along with completed samples and step-by-step instructions for their use. Additionally, there is a section with some recommendations for using technology to manage your healthcare. Go to www.mylymeguide.com/purchase to order the paperback book or Marjorie's consulting services.

I’ve been using My Lyme Guide with my Lyme disease patients and it’s been very helpful to me and for them. My patients bring in their charts and forms from the books they’ve purchased and we review them quickly and with clarity. Carolyn Walsh, MD - Internal Medicine Specialist, Virginia
My daughter recently purchased two of your books - one for herself and one for her brother. They are both
transitioning to new doctors, so it is a good time to re-organize and your book is a wonderful tool! I am so impressed by it and am glad my daughter is now benefiting from it.

Managing chronic illness, from appointments to complicated medical protocols to lab work, could quickly overwhelm a well person—never mind someone who is sick. Marjorie Veiga has done much of the hard work for us, using her superb organizational skills and broad knowledge base to create an easy-to-follow system. Specially designed charts streamline the tracking of everything from medications and test results to appointments and bills. My Lyme Guide also offers valuable resource material; Veiga has drawn on her personal experience with lyme as well as consultations with lyme doctors to provide the very best background information and insider tips. I'm letting others know that My Lyme Guide reduces stress and leaves more time and energy for healing, a benefit for all of us.
