Lyme Disease is wreaking havoc on millions of lives.
Over 476,000 new Lyme disease cases emerge each year, yet many medical professionals often dismiss or overlook this debilitating condition. Lyme patients frequently feel lonely and isolated, struggling to receive proper support.
I’m Not Crazy, I’m Sick is a Lyme disease documentary that chronicles the daily lives of three families and WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne, in their fight for survival against this insidious illness. The Mode Family in Northern Maine survives on $150/month with limited access to treatment. Ash Baker, an artist in Maryland, has a dedicated doctor helping her get treatment covered by insurance. The Cleworth Family has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Atty’s treatment, accessing the world’s best doctors and care. Elena Delle Donne has battled Lyme disease symptoms throughout her career, fighting not only the disease but for recognition and support.
This film highlights the physical, emotional, and financial struggles caused by Lyme, emphasizing the need for greater awareness, reliable testing methods, and accessible treatment options. Expert doctors, researchers, and advocates provide insights into the science and politics surrounding Lyme disease.
Through these inspiring stories, I’m Not Crazy, I’m Sick serves as a call to action to understand and support the millions worldwide living with this devastating illness.
Produced by Sypher Studios and Fieldhouse Productions, the documentary is shot by Emmy award-winning cinematographer Clair Popkin (Free Solo) and directed by Elle Brooks-Tao.
