So Ebola has one case right now in the US that has been reported. When we turn on the news that is all anyone is talking about. Every single news channel is talking about Ebola. Yet Lyme is a quickly spreading pandemic around the world, and nobody is talking about it? Why?
The Lyme community has lost many beautiful souls. Why are these losses not being recognized by the news? And even if you ‘survive” Lyme, you suffer for months, years or even a lifetime. Lyme is debilitating yet, the media, IDSA and CDC appear to be looking the other way, or maybe even sweeping it under the rug. When will justice happen for the patients infected with Lyme disease and other tick borne infections?
