Did not surprise me that it was not good. Whoever wrote this was definitly not on our side. Remember this is the paper that printed Zemel's piece urging CT gov to not sign the bill to protect CT docs from getting in trouble for treating Lyme with long term abx based on a clinical diagnosis.

Same paper that after the bill was signed into law the paper never even wrote a story about it. Like they were pretending it never happened or something. Seems like this paper has ties to Yale or UCONN.

Just frustrating. It did list speakers after certain shows at realways cinema in hartford (Dr. Jones, Andy Wilson, and the patient from CT in the film that had the difficult pregnancies.)all speaking after the film on different days. Sorry I don't have the link to the courant for all of you.

It is GROSS! Who do these people think they are? These are opinions derived from The IDSA's statements that Abx should not be used long term being blown out of proportion. they dont realize that long term abx use is not some new protocol for treating chronic bacterias. They try to apply the virus rules to abx the stigma in doctors offfices against this is to stop people from wanting abx for a cold virus. It is warranted for bacterias and it is a shame the brain washing that is happening. Peace peace peace peace is what I pray for in my soul because I gt so mad!!
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.

I think the worst part after reading a review like this is how demeaning it is to those who are suffering with this disease. The bill passed unanimously in the house and senate. The gov signed it into law. I heard she is close to someone who suffers from Lyme. The members of the house and senate all spoke out about how many people in their lives have been affected by Lyme.

So I think the person who wrote this and many others who have their "opinions" about chronic Lyme have just not had to face it....yet.

I admit I was aware of Lyme 2 years ago but until I got it and it turned my life upside down I didn't really understand it afterall. I had no idea about the 2 "camps", did not know there were LLMD's, remember hearing bits on the news about Dr. Jones but didn't really get it. When you get Lyme you learn everything there is that you can get your hands on. Makes you feel like you are in the twilight zone sometimes. I guess this is true when anyone is faced with health issues.

I just really feel the person who wrote this review hasn't had to face it. Once you have it or know someone who has struggled you quickly get on board. Now how those doctors don't believe? That is another post. I don't have the energy to discuss that now.
