This particular subject is one of my few "buttons," especially when I hear someone is being dismissed or treated as a paranoid person when something is truly wrong.
What is truly wrong is how doctors are trained (or not) about
Lyme Disease. And your words, HeartsinPain are appreciated. But like so many dealing with this, my doubts and lack of confidence creep in, as do anxiety and depression.
It really irritates me when I hear how you were treated and others. Ignorance is no excuse for doctors. The obvious is going on all over the United States, Europe and other parts of the world. When I see a new doctor for an issue, like kidneys, I have learned not to mention Lyme so the doctor will actually do testing that needs to be done.
Maybe we should all start a Lyme Disease circus
