God, just when you think it can't get any worse. I wonder if we can round up all these doctors and collectively sue their butts off.
FROM THE ARTICLE: Symptoms include common complaints such as fatigue, headache, joint pains, weakness, memory problems, anxiety and palpitations. These patients have a higher incidence of psychiatric disorders.
FURTHER DOWN IN THE ARTICLE: Traditional psychotherapy and psychotropic medications may be indicated in the minority of patients with a specific psychiatric problem.
HOW CAN WE HAVE BOTH A HIGHER INCIDENCE OF PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS, BUT ONLY A MINORITY OF US WILL HAVE A SPECIFIC PSYCHIATRIC PROBLEM???????????????? HUH???? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? WHEN THESE NON-LYME LITERATE DOCTORS START TALKING about THIS STUFF, THEY TALK IN CIRCLES. IT'S CIRCULAR THINKING.
AGAIN, FROM THE ARTICLE: This shift may be caused by a decline in physician authority (I CANNOT EVEN BELIEVE THIS STATEMENT!), an increasing antiscience attitude (HUH?) , exaggeration by the media (WHAT MEDIA??) , and political and economic reinforcement of these syndromes as real medical entities (ARE YOU KIDDING ME?).
I'VE SEEN MOST OF THIS BS BEFORE, BUT THIS IS A NEW "LOW". PERHAPS THIS DOCTOR HAS A FEW PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS, NARCISSISM AND PARANOIA!
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Meade
