It is sooo difficult to even find a good Lyme literate doc in wisconsin where I live. We need more good Lyme doc's like the older doc mentioned on the blog. What will it take before more doctors step up and believe in Lyme and become Lyme literate so people don't have to go to other states to be treated.

The whole thing makes me mad.

Sorry but I think a skilled dr well versed in a specific illness can take shortcuts and it's a whole lot safer than a dr on drugs. This is so sad.

I wonder what point it will have to get to before the craziness ends.

NO WAY...lol. kinda like me...

Not to mention confusing patients about who to trust in a doctor.

I want to ask my diagnosing doctor to prove I have Lyme and ask my primary care doctor to prove I don't.

lol

What do they have to do to pull out one of those spirochete rascals and put it under a microscope and why the bleep is it so hard to make this a reliable test?

I know, I don't ask much do I? emoticon

my doc came close to losing his license for treating lyme patients. thats why he was so careful to involve CDC with my case.
this happens all the time. there are lots of physicians out there who are treating and robbing people calling things lyme that arent. its a big business. unfortunately its putting the good ones under scrutiny and that stinks.
