As my journey into the world of Lyme disease progresses one thing stands out above all others....Doctors act like we are trying to convince them that we have been invaded by aliens. What makes it so difficult for them to see what is right in front of there noses? They seem to be willing to bet that it is anything....ANYTHING...as long as it isn't Lyme. For the most part all people want is a proper course of antibiotics. It isn't as though we are asking them to make marajuana legal or prescribe dope. I just don't get it. My doctors are absolutely convinced that it isn't lyme-even after I tested positive. They say it is fibromyalgia, and lupus, and anxiety, and chronic fatigue compounded by the stress of daily life-working mom with three kids. Maybe it is a little bit of all of it...but maybe those things were brought on by this very complex bacteria. What harm is there in treating the Lymes? Are they afraid of losing someone that they can keep coming to them for a multitude of pharaceuticals? Do they try to keep us as chronically ill patients?
I really just don't get it. Someone please enlighten this virgin lyme carrier to the reason the medical community has turned they back against something that seems so easy to treat and causes so many poeple to become soo ill.
