Anna Penenberg's book, Dancing in the Narrows, chronicles her descent into the underworld of Lyme disease treatment and her multiyear struggle to save her daughter Dana’s life. We discuss how Anna and Dana first recognized the illness, how they realized that Dana’s doctors did not know how to help her, the difficulties of putting your life on hold to care for a loved one, the relationship dynamics between a chronically-ill dependent and her caregiver, how caregivers need to care for themselves in any way possible, and some of the extraordinary treatments and regimens Anna and Dana explored as they nursed Dana back to health during over a decade of struggle and experimentation.
