Razzle, that was very encouraging- what is supposed to be used against the L form though?
I refuse to stay sick! Period.

Now, it can be proven that Lyme Disease can be chronic. I wonder how the IDSA will crawl around this statement? I'm sure they will think of something!

Thank you so much for sharing that, it really helps to understand this aspect of Lyme's.  People just look at you like you have two heads when you tell them that yes, I've been on antibiotics for x amount of time, and no I don't know if I'll ever be completely cured...heck, I didn't even get it!

Razzle thanks!
I can't wait to see what the IDSA has to say about this.  I'm sure they will find something to discredit it, they always do.  At least I feel there is hope.
