1st Id like to say, so that noone mis-interprets me; that Chronic Lyme disease IS REAL....
Ive been reading peoples experiences here, and Im hearing that 1, peeps either caugjt the illness fairly soon, OR 2, they were mis-diagnosed(or not at all) for a long time...hence what Ive referred to as the 'long-timers'...
So, my post here is my take on what Im thinking the illness should really be termed for the 'long-timers', as simply the chronically ill. OR, I like DR. Horowitz's term, M.S.I.D.'s. Thats the Most accurate, becausebfor us 'long-timers', its not just Lyme.
For ME, Lyme is the LEAST of my problems. Its the ONE infection that's submitted, forced into hybernation(if you will).
I remain chronically ill because of the mycoplasma that teams upw/the HHV6. I have an AIDS like illness. Oh, and i have 2 variences of that darned gene mutation( cannot remember its acronym). Ive been sick off&on my entire life!!!
So, do I belong here on this Lyme forum? Is there one for M.S.I.D.'s? Does it matter? Should Lyme disease be renamed, or should I just view it as a broad term, VS specifically referring to Borrellia?
What say you???
