*Debbie Morgan, who stars on the daytime soap opera “All My Children,” has been missing from the series lately. She recently announced why she’s been gone since December: lyme disease.

“It’s nothing fatal. Lyme disease is an infection caused by the borrelia bacteria from a tick,” she shared on the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “It’s a chronic condition, and I’ve had it in my system for over 15 years.”

Lyme disease is a condition that may cause complications of the heart, nervous system, and joints, but it can be cured.

Morgan will be returning to the show in the coming months.
