Hey, if it's not too much trouble, I was wondering if some of y'all could help me get a couple of things together for an appointment I've got tomorrow afternoon.
No, sadly, it's not with an LLMD. I wish.
It's just a GP, BUT.. she was recommended to my mother by a friend of hers, claiming that she knows a thing or two about Lyme, that she's had experience with it.
Still, regardless of that, it being such a welcome tale to be told in contrast with all the stuff you hear about the crappy doctors, I don't have much hope for getting any real help from here.
I mean, she's still subject to all of the barriers put in place by the forces that be, they that stand in the way of us getting the treatment we deserve, right?
I'm basically just going to see if she'll give me a western blot, seeing as she wanted the results of the one I had done a couple years ago.
If I test positive, she gives me a couple months of antibiotics, or however much is allowed - I've forgotten, that's cool.
But, again, I don't expect much more.
ANYWAY.. the help, yes. Even though I think she's a little more knowledgeable, I'd still like to come prepared with a couple of things.
ONE.. an article detailing the inaccuracy of the various tests as well as some adequate proof of findings.
TWO.. the inadequacy of the mainstream treatment plans that are recommend for Lyme disease.
I could do my own research, but I'd really like a couple of short, to the point articles, nothing too long and overwhelming for her, you know?
That may be too much to be asking for, considering how complex this stuff is, but, if anyone has any knowledge on the whereabouts of such publications, that'd be awesome. So helpful.
If not, guess I will just try my best.
