…  everyone is ignoring all the research that is pointing to it being possibly transmitted by other bugs, congenitally, through blood banks and possibly even sexually transmitted as it’s found in semen. Please take a look at these research links. Just a couple I have found throughout the years that really need to get in doctors hands but for some reason, are not. http://whatislyme.com/research-links/

I’m not sure what it takes to make the news. It seems Swine Flu and new vaccinations get on pretty easily, while those who suffer with Lyme Disease keep being ignored.  But being that it is Spring and it would be a good time to bring about Lyme Awareness as ticks will be out in full force, I thought this would be a great opportunity for you to do a story on Lyme Disease to prevent some folks from getting ill.

This last weekend of May 10 & 11th. About 30 countries and several states all protested on the same day. Lyme patients from around the world all united to bring awareness to this much overlooked disease. If that is not news, I don’t know what is!

People are so afraid to say the “L” word. It is so surrounded in controversy. In the meanwhile, many people are suffering, their lives being whisked away and dying. Whole families are being turned upside down. Please hear our pleas and be the hero that does something about it. Please.

I am not a fancy writer, I am not a doctor, I am not someone who can shoot off stats at the blink of an eye. Well, to be honest there is hardly any stats on Lyme Disease or any of the co infections that ticks spread because noone cares enough to do any research since the CDC and IDSA act like it is just cured with a couple weeks of antibiotics.
