Response to the IDSA Facebook post

On January 4, 2012, when the IDSA posted the question on their Facebook page, “What would you like to see from your society in the coming year?” the sheer volume of earnest and desperate comments from Lyme Disease sufferers became a phenomenon. The comments are still coming in.

This document captures the 2,350 comments that had been made by February 7 (2012). We’ll feature the more penetrating ones here from time to time.

I would like to see
all of the doctors who drafted the
2006 Lyme Guidelines exiled from
the Society and barred from
Medicine for conflicts of interest.
They have put private and business
interests ahead of the public
interest. This is unforgivable.

Redeem yourself and start fresh by
helping the thousands who are
suffering with a disease they can get
no recognition for due to the
damage from a small tyrannical
group of “experts.”  

Train doctors to help those who are
sick, educate the public with
accurate information and develop
some real testing methods so no one
else has to suffer again.
