Actress Debbi Morgan Reveals She's Battling Lyme Disease
Daytime soap opera fans know actress Debbi Morgan as Dr. Angie Baxter Hubbard on the long-running show, All My Children.
Morgan took a leave of absence in December of last year, but now she has revealed on 'The Tom Joyner Morning Show that her time off was due to her being infected with Lyme disease.
"It's nothing fatal. Lyme disease is an infection caused by the borrelia bacteria from a tick. It's a chronic condition, and I've had it in my system for over 15 years," said Debbi.
The ex-wife of actor, Charles S. Dutton has had recurring roles on What's Happening!! and Good Times and was originally a cast member of All My Children from 1982-1990. She returned to the popular daytime soap along with co-star, Darnell Williams in January of 2008.
The manageable disease will not sideline the actress for much longer, she hopes to return to the show in a couple of months.
