While there are a few that I am "concerned" about
, some I know personally. For most of them, they are talking about
a small subset of Lyme patients that have irreversible immune system damage from Lyme specifically. I haven't done all the research myself to know if everything they say is true, but I've done enough to be convinced that it's true for some.
That kind of backlash will come no matter what we do. If we do nothing, then this will only continue to get more and more dire as more and more LLMD's are punished for following the treatment standards that are up on the National Guidelines Clearinghouse - how nuts is that??? We don't have enough LLMD's as it is.
During the time I have been involved with the Lyme world, I've watched many doctors be brought up on false charges, people being called liars and worse for saying they have chronic Lyme, and personally have suffered from others actions because of what I have to say about
chronic Lyme too. No one is safe from that, never have been and never will be - not until something changes.
While I don't agree with everything they say and every thing they do, I will support their efforts that I feel are justified because it's better to stand up for what's right, than to allow the CDC convince everyone (by bullying/scare tactics and prosecuting doctors for doing the right thing) that chronic Lyme is not real.
