Welcome to our little spot! First of all I wanted to let you know that I went into your post and did some editing and why.
First of all, we don't share doctor names on the forum for two reasons. One is that our doctors are under attack for giving us treatment that actually works, and second, the Admin here says it's a no no for liability reasons.
I also removed your email address from your post. We are an
open forum, so anyone with a computer can see your posts. No need to invite the weirdos out there to send you all kinds of emails!!
We have an email option that you can enable which will allow only members to see your email address though. Pleas go to your profile, select edit profile and look for the part that says "show my email". Be sure to select it, and then scroll to the bottom of the page and hit the submit button so that your changes will be saved. When this is done the little envelope under your screen name will light up in blue, like mine.
I think the idea of those of you in that area getting together would be a great thing! A little face-to-face support can be sooo helpful!! And we all know that a real hug beats a cyber hug hands down!!
Do be sure to read through our "New to Lyme? Start here!" thread even if you aren't new to Lyme as it's packed with all kinds of really important information, links and symptoms lists (as Lyme rarely travels alone!) that I'm sure will be useful to you.
Again, welcome!! We're glad you found us!!
