That's pretty much it - they want us to quietly fade into the background - which is why we should do anything but that!
We need to make waves! We need to be active in helping to bring awareness and acceptance of these infections, as they will be coming soon to those that don't believe! There are many organizations out there that are doing things to change the way Lyme is seen and treated. I encourage everyone to find a way to help out that fits with their life/lifestyle. Otherwise, nothing will change.
I spent 37 years being shuffled from one doc to the next. I literally have lost count of how many doctors I've seen during that time - then I finally got the diagnosis of tick-borne infections and treated for them, and I re-gained my health (then got reinfected), so there was no doubt that it's these infections that plague me - even though I was infected in Central Calif. in 1970, years before Lyme was 'discovered' on the East Coast in the 1980's. But, nothing has changed since that time either.
