Sigal and Hassett published an article about
Lyme disease in the EHP Supplements (Sigal and Hassett 2002), suggesting that chronic
Lyme disease is "psychogenic." I do not think that Sigal and Hassett, non-psychiatrists, are qualified to speak about psychiatric matters. I, however, actually have had the
disease, which they characterize as "medically unexplained," for over 25 years and have 15 years of experience as a patient advocate and educator. I beg to differ.
