I have never sued anyone before but I am angry about
what has happened to me, how the doctors at a local hospital misdiagnosed me over and over, dismissed me when I told them I was bitten by a tick and even showed one of them the EM rash. I believe I will be sick for the rest of my life with this. It has affected my ability to think, feel, and do things. Many other people out there are being misdiagnosed and it is terrifying to imagine what will become of them. I had my records transferred to another doctor and all of my visits from Sept 2004 to Feb 2007 were omitted so there is nothing to verify what I am saying! Meanwhile I am paying hundreds of dollars every month (not covered by insurance) trying to get well. Some of you have paid tens of thousands of dollars and will continue to do so. It just isn't fair.
My cognitive function is so low I could not follow what was going on legally about lyme not being accepted as a chronic illness. I get it now. When they find out you have the disease, they give you a short course of ABX and pronounce you cured. Then any other complaints are unrelated and even undiagnosed. I could not understand how this affects insurance companies because they are still paying for some kind of treatment, which is usually making the person sicker needing more attention. Keeping someone going with "MS" or "ALS" cannot be cheap. I think it is more protective of mal practise suits against doctors. Actually I don't know what it is about but it sure is crazy. Why don't people bring suit against the medical community for being so stupid?
