Current health: Getting stronger
I want to share my story, spread awareness about Lyme and give hope to those in pain.–Tracy M.
Tracy Mulholland began experiencing severe fatigue and pain in 2011. She suffered through more than 2 ½ years of severe sickness and misdiagnosis, sleeping more than 16 hours a day and losing the use of her arms among other symptoms. She saw over 50 doctors before finally being diagnosed with Lyme disease.
After another two years of long and difficult treatment, and with a lot of family support, this aspiring actress, writer, and producer, can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. She recently turned her creative talents toward the production of a new short film entitled Grace Note, about her experience with Lyme. The film premiered at the Carmel International Film Festival and has gone on to win wide acclaim.
The film, which depicts a young woman struggling with Lyme disease as she searches for the meaning of recurring dreams about a musician from her childhood, is based on a true story and intended to help build awareness for Lyme disease and is now being distributed via the internet at http://gracenotefilm.com/. It is particularly important here on the West coast where Mulholland explains, “There is a serious misconception in California and other states that Lyme can only be picked up in Connecticut. It’s just wrong.” You can learn more about the film on the website or on Facebook.
Ms. Mulholland is an actress, writer, producer and singer, living in Los Angeles. She has appeared in such films as Crazy, Stupid Love with Ryan Gosling and A Thousand Words with Eddie Murphy; as a lead in several movies for Lifetime; and in a recurring role on the Amazon children’s series, Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street.
