Forum for Lyme

I think that we need a separate forum for conspiracies. Eric clearly is not going to quit pestering us, in any of his incarnations. This would be a place where he could discuss how lyme was started in a laboratory in Connecticut, and then released into the woods, while unwitting citizens slept peacefully. Apparently Bigfoot is a carrier of Lyme. Another theory is that the Brits, tired of seeing words like colour spelled without the "u", infected the American deer ticks with a toxic mixture. That being bacteria from the tubercle of a jersey cow mixed with the spit of Margaret Thatcher (blech).
Why else would it be called Lyme disease, even those afflicted with Lyme affectionately call each other Lymies. Need I say more? wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Anyway, just a few thoughts to help streamline the board.

Luv ya,

Basso, I think you could be onto something here....... I guess it it is only right that we Britts should shoulder some responsibility and as the BFS syndrome started in the Greenspoint Mall in Houston, Texas, it seems only fair to blame the lymies for Lymes Disease. I can't believe that we hadn't made the connection before? Shame on us.....

Basso, I understand your harsh feelings for Eric, and he'll probably come back atcha and a new war will be started...WHY?

People do need to (and they have every right to know) that there may be another explanation for their symptoms...most docs will not test them or mention it to them.

I hope this isn't another "Lyme war", but if it is you started this one. I'm staying out of this (I'll try anyway).

Take care...

My dear Ryan:

If you check the date on the original post you will see that it is an old one. Further, I am not worried about " you know who" coming back, this would seem to be inevitable. My last post regarding the lyme business was to you, when I wished you well. I hope you are getting the treatment you need and that you are feeling very well indeed.

Sorry 'bout that, I thought I was in a different forum when I posted too! I haven't been to the doc yet...I'm hoping she'll check me other things as well...

Take care.

Hey Courtney, not to worry, these are old battles. They weren't so much about lyme as about rhetoric. On your current thread you will notice no such division; only good will. Eric drops by occassionally to tell us about lyme, and that is all good. You should investigate all probabilities to your illness if that is what you feel is necessary. There is no taboo here on discussing lyme at all, nor mold, nor viruses, nor anything else. You should feel absolutely free to discuss these things, passionately or otherwise.

You newbies will probably go through the same "protocol" most of us did:

1) Think you may have Lyme
2) Get an Igenex positive test back
3) Try to convince your doctors and everyone you have it, they say no
4) Doctor finally gives you Doxycycline or something and it does nothing
5) Realize you probably do not at a much later time

This seems to be very common, and I went through it last year.

Hang in there and listen to Basso...he's much wiser than I :wink:
