  1. So why don’t the Lyme disease community protest the CDC every single month until we get the criminals to admit the corruption! We have everything to gain and nothing to loose. This once a year protest I think just isn’t enough. Government and the FDA, CDC needs to have their feet out to the fire until WE GET the facts straight and the insurance companies pay for the treatments needed so we can finally get back on our dam feet and get back to our lives!!! I just don’t understand how this has taken this long to accomplish yet the government gives over 1 billion dollars for this Zika virus??? It’s a slap in the face to every Lyme diseased inflicted patient, to the CARING doctors that have lost their practice to help us patients. It’s time we the patients along with the LLMDs to join together and fight this now!!! Let’s not wait for five more years. How many deaths will accrue In The next five years because of Lyme disease and the coinfections. We know it’s real, the scientists know it’s real, the LLMD doctors know it’s real. Scientific evidence has proved its real. So when do we scream and shout every single month at the CDC doorsteps and the capital until this is no longer an issue and we can all be treated like every other ill patient from other illnesses. What’s the hold up!!! If we can deal with this every day we need to stand up once a month and stand up where it counts!!! At the CDC door steps, at the capital doorsteps and anywhere else we need to stand!!! I am mad and I know everyone else is. Let’s quit talking and let’s start FIGHTING MAD!!!!

    1. We have tried and tried the protest route.. everyone is too sick and too poor to keep showing up. Even the annual protests have dwindled in their numbers as it never seems to change anything and media ignores us. (I was the US coordinator for the Worldwide Lyme Protests) two years in a row and on the Mayday Project team which is still going… (Im not on the team anymore) but they put a ton of effort into it but noone shows up for varying reasons. Look at this post to see the protests that have been done.. there are many
