This is of interest to all Lyme patients and advocates.  If you live in NJ, you can do something about it.
The State of New Jersey is placing Lyme disease in a group with
disorders of unknown causes: chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, Gulf War
Illness, multiple chemical sensitivity. It wants to open a center
characterizing these disorders and include Lyme disease as
"neuroendocrine immune" (NEID) disorders.

This is a serious danger to Lyme patient treatment as it mirrors what
the IDSA and some governement agencies want to do, make chronic Lyme
disease a collection of vague symptoms with no known cause, thus
preventing treatment with antibiotics.

The New Jersey Assembly already passed a unanimous resolution (AR 202)
supporting the creation of this center. The NJ Senate has not yet voted
on the Resolution (SR 133).

The NJ Senate Resolution SR 133 that will be voted upon can be viewed
here (pdf file):

A Letter sent last week to NJ Senators asking for removal of Lyme from
resolution can be viewed here (pdf file):

I have Lyme; it doesn't have me.

Anything to keep the population under control and not help the sick!!!! I am so fed up with the government right now I could scream, but it isn't worth the energy. No wonder why all the other countries hate us!
