Listening to this is making me incredibly sad and angry. :( I think I usually avoid talking about lyme these days because it just causes too much anger (in me) and brings back so many awful memories, and now listening to this is bringing it all back! But I know it's necessary...
Lyme and co-infections since approximately 2002. Diagnosed in 2005. Treated for two years solid. Diagnosed with Lymphomatoid Papulosis in October 2007. Currently back on abx.

Hi alfers.  I completely understand what you are saying.  The good news, I think, is that there were more guests representing our side.  Typically it is usually biased against chronic Lyme.
