Now a train goes by the house. Irene and Janet have returned. Irene walks across the room and tells Rebecca that she doesn't know what's wrong with her. Rebecca silently hugs Irene. In the background, Janet starts laughing for no reason. Rebecca suggests that they go call a doctor, and Irene agrees. Irene gets on the phone and calls a doctor to whom she was referred. In an interview, Irene says she's scared to go to the doctor because she knows that they will tell her something is wrong. Hey, I had that same fear about the dentist, but trust me on this one -- make an appointment and go.
Irene and Rebecca ride in a cab to see Irene's doctor. Rebecca says that it might be "just a little bit of a relapse." Irene says that it's "a bad situation" because she didn't take an adequate amount of time off after she was diagnosed. In an interview, Rebecca explains that she looked Lyme Disease up on the internet (shout-out?) and it's "a lot more serious than [she] thought." Rebecca explains that it causes "fatigue, nausea, muscle weakening, abdominal pain -- it's a nightmare!"
At the doctor's office, Irene says that she needs a friend to come with her, because she often denies her problems. Rebecca voice-overs that Lyme Disease is fatal in ten percent of cases, and that forty to sixty percent of cases will experience "major muscle deterioration." The doctor comes in, and Irene greets her. The doctor's all, "Um, my chair?" and Rebecca's all, "Oops!" and stands up. In an interview, Irene says that she really appreciates Rebecca's coming with her. Irene describes her symptoms to the doctor, including headaches, hands and feet falling asleep, and excessive bruising. In an interview, Irene says that she's been sick this whole time and didn't know it, and PSAs that "Lyme Disease is the disease in disguise."
