Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease

From the star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Yolanda Foster is releasing her new book in February, 2017. an emotional and eye opening behind-the-scenes look at her descent into her journey with chronic Lyme disease.

She talks about getting sick right before her  2011 wedding to David Foster. From an outspoken, multi-tasking social butterfly she became trapped in a paralyzing mental cocoon. She suffered from severe debilitating fatigue, migraines, joint pain, anxiety, insomnia, Bell’s palsy, tremors, muscle weakness, severe brain fog, word retrieval difficulty, memory loss and intermittent loss of eyesight. Her perfect marriage became strained and let to divorce; but the strong bond with her children Gigi, Bella and Anwar was her motivation to fight through the darkest days of her life.

After a year of searching, discharged by Cedars Sinai with a chronic fatigue label, Yolanda Hadid was finally diagnosed with chronic neurological Lyme disease. She has since been one of the most outspoken celebrities who suffers from Lyme Disease, even showing up at the Worldwide Lyme Protest to protest with California Lyme patients.

  1. I also thank you, dear Lisa Hilton, for posting this. Your post was the first I spotted. 👍💚 I love her title “Believe Me,” because to me that is the spiritual bullets/attack side of the disease. Being disbelieved is like that extra straw that breaks the camel’s back! Bad enough to be so stinking sick…but on top to be misunderstood and mislabeled. :/

    I sure relate to Yolanda. I had brushed with many in CA who had Lyme cases near Malibu. (I grew up in CA.) Her soon-to-be ex husband, David Foster, is typical of music producer personalities. They are hard driving types. We, who face the daily challenge of Lyme, know full well about chronic conditions and relationships. Love becomes a frequent flyer! 😳❤️

    Yolanda and so many of “us” we’re very high achievers and got whooped upside the head and our life’s trains derailed by Lyme! Grr! We are all trying so hard to reclaim and enjoy our lives. 💚 I hope her book helps the cause.
