Actress Debbi Morgan Fighting Lyme Disease

 

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.

    Manageable—if living day in and day out in chronic pain, fatigue, and not knowing if it’s going to be a good day or a bad day, sounds like manageable, count me out. I have finally fully recovered from Babesia, which was my major problem, Bartonella and Lyme Disease this go around and I do not miss those days at all. Having to take pain, anti-nausea, energy boosters, etc. day in and day out, doesn’t sound manageable to me. I don’t miss the days where the overwhelming fatigue just consumed me and I had to play the role of an “award-winning actress” so that people wouldn’t feel uncomfortable around me and that I looked like all was well; I don’t miss those days either. All I have to say is that if the correct, long-term treatment can make you feel as great as I do now; I’ll take the risk. I no longer have the “fibromyalgia” or “flare-ups” as the doctors called—I’ll take being well any day over “manageable”. It is high, time that the IDSA changes the insufficient treatment guidelines and insufficient testing procedures for Lyme Disease.
