Here is my fork in the road with you. I paste your response to me:
'You are being treated it looks like a docotor who is not a LYME specialist.'
You are not just sharing info here. You are challenging people when often you don't know what you are talking about. My Dr is an infectious disease Dr who started out in internal medicine and has been an ID Dr for over 20 yrs. This Dr specialises in AIDS, CFS, and LYME, amongst others. His waiting list for LYME patients is about a year and half long. He has been treating Lyme for over 20 years. His reputation in his specialities in Kansas City is reknowned. He is still actively researching Lyme and the other diseases and publishing research. He is currently researching the HHV6 virus and researching the part this virus plays in many of these diseases.
And his Lyme patients get well. That's how the waiting list moves at all. You think I'm going to sit here while you make a statement like that w/o attacking you?
I have not read all your stuff from the CDC. All I will say to that is that I have never discussed or argued bands 31 and 34. As far as the CDC goes, I do not place my faith in this agency. The CDC recommends vaccines that have not properly been tested and studied. (look at the oldest history of the swine flu vaccine) The CDC's stats on many issues is skewed. The CDC is too much a political agency. The CDC is behind the times and the CDC has been known before to be irresponsible.
I have been thru it w/ the CDC before, regarding dog attacks and predominant breeds. People spout their 'study' all the time, yet the CDC had to later retracted and correct their own flawed 'study'.
I do not believe that half the population has +41. I do not have a positive band 41 and am betting that half the people here do not have it either.
My WB was not CDC positive. I don't care. I have a positive diagnosis from 2 LLMDs which is based on labwork, clinical diagnosis and my history. And my labwork was done by Quest and Labcorp. I've never used Igenex.
As for long term abx, I am not sure what I will do, but for the time being, I will kill as much bacteria as possible w/ abx. I will place my faith in a Dr who has treated this disease for as long as he has.
I love researching and I love learning things from people. But I can't deal w/ folks who spout off at the mouth when they don't know what they're talking about and/or project their judgments on people or things about which they know nothing. Here, I am specifically referring to your statement about my Dr, who you know nothing about, altho it applies to other statements you are making.
I'm choosing to ignore Motox posts, reason being, you grab a piece of something and run wild w/ it. You put people who are very sick on the defensive, when you have no idea what their history is or who their Drs are. Mostly, I am not arguing w/ someone who relies on the CDC for information.
