I agree with all of you, i agree completely with the Dude, i have a linear solution, because i'm not a doctor and i've been ridiculed by a lot that i have lyme disease. What i'm left with other than fight for my terrible health and get every drug/supplement i can get just to regain my health and life back?
I should add that my comments were not meant to be negative or a criticism. Not at all! Thankfully, you didn't seem to take them in that way, but I just wanted to be clear.
Plus, it takes one to know one. For many years, my thinking was very similar. I thought the same linear, logical thinking that helped me obtain my education would apply to everything else in life. But, in many cases, unfortunately, it doesn't.
Also, I'm truly sorry you've been ridiculed! It's bad enough to be sick, but to be derided about
it, too, is just terrible.
Hopefully, by now, you've realized that the folks on this forum care about
each other - including you! In the end, what's most important is healing. The more posts you read, the more you will see there's no single path to getting better. Those that have improved/healed almost always used a variety of modalities to help them. What works for one person many not necessarily work for a different person. Plus, what may work for me today, may not work for me next week. Our internal landscape is always changing, so our approach to healing needs to remain flexible.
Align yourself with people who have your best interest in mind and stick with them. Sadly, that may not always be who you expect. But, that's okay. Put yourself first and don't worry about
