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, uses her background in project management to provide consulting to 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 24 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 wanted to thank you so much for such a valuable presentation. I came away feeling very encouraged, empowered and connected. You gave us a wide array of tools to get organized and feel more in control our lives. I will be incorporating these into my life and know they will make a huge difference.

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
Thank you for your help and compassion these past four months. I truly know God led us to you, and I am so grateful he did. I don't know where we'd be right now if He had not. I appreciate your help, advice and guidance to the resources we needed. Debbi in 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.

The Guide is simply outstanding. The charts and graphs are extremely useful, not only for lyme patients but many other persons struggling with chronic problems with cognitive limitations, fatigue and pain.When a person is in the midst of a disability and “living it”, it is hard to keep an accurate perspective as to how different life is from before.The charts and tables that you have provided for persons to use as worksheets create a day to day record of what they are facing.This is not only helpful for them in seeking medical attention and trying to provide for their needs, but also in having helpful evidence for disability claims.I will be recommending it to my clients. I commend you on your outstanding work.

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.
