In the LYMElight
Soap star Debbi Morgan reportedly has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease, which was released to the media yesterday after she took an unexpected leave of absence from her show, "All My Children." She claims to have had it "in her system" for over 15 years, and yet she was just recently diagnosed.
Among the many other well-know figures who have contracted this disease are George W. Bush, authors Meg Cabot (the "Princess Diaries" series), Amy Tan ("The Joy Luck Club"), and Alice Walker ("The Color Purple"), and former NY Mets pitcher Tom Seaver.
