Hope something is going on beyond the lyme community, in the local news ect, word needs to get out.

Hanging out together in green shirts complaining to each other doesn't have much effect lol.

Rumor has it, a nationally known, new, huge sports complex/arena might have green lighting. 1/3 of America watched the the SB on TV in this stadium Feb, 4th, 2018. The green lighting's not for certain till it happens. It was purple for "Prince day".

My local small town paper has a new lyme friendly, younger editor who wrote a lyme story (forbidden by last editor, I tried). Out with the old, in with the new.

I live in PA, its all over the local news about ticks. "warm winter, bad tick season" or the new tick found in Hopewell, NJ

people hear about it here, but until they are impacted or friend/family member...

No - maybe one day - can’t take it on yet -


People here sometimes talk about ticks and their dogs - but not about themselves.
I do point out to them that ticks like people too and they need to protect themselves, do tick checks,
but it usually falls on deaf ears.

There's been lots of private discussion locally about how bad the situation is here but beyond that there's just a token effort by our Provincial government - they put together a typical press release that rehashes the usual precautions etc.

No real change in public understanding though - there's still a belief, I think, that a negative on the two tier test is 100% reliable (one local doctor said the elisa is 99% accurate). None of the people who know I have chronic lyme have any idea what that actually means. Sigh.
