Tuttle’s Letter to the TBDWG — Madison Area Lyme Support Group (Blog Post Share)

This is something everyone should read.

“There are rumors that Dr. Eugene Shapiro has been selected to participate as a member of the Tick-borne Disease Working Group. Shapiro has spent a career discrediting the sick and disabled along with the courageous clinicians attempting to help these patients as he coauthored the deplorable Lancet article referenced below. There is no place for Shapiro on the TBDWG as he is a disgrace to the medical profession.” Continue reading “Tuttle’s Letter to the TBDWG — Madison Area Lyme Support Group (Blog Post Share)”

Marijuana, Hemp & CBD.

For thousands of years, humans and animals alike have been using plants to help them heal. We still do. That is why we have Lavender baby bath, Chamomile Tea, Aloe in our lotions, and health food stores.

Believe it or not, we have also been using marijuana, hemp, and it’s derivatives in the US, up until about 70 yrs ago, with no issues whatsoever. Doctors were prescribing it for hundreds of years.

Faith, Hope, and Complacency.

“Let me tell you something my friend. Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.“ – (Red) The Shawshank Redemption.

Hey everyone,  I guess it’s been awhile. To be honest, I just haven’t felt inspired enough, or angry enough to crank out a post. My apologies, but, as you know, such is the life of a person with a chronic illness…

Let’s just call it what it is: CHRONIC LYME DISEASE.

Yes, it does exist, and no matter what you are told, it’s NOT all in your head.

I was reminded of this, quite abruptly, while watching “The Bleeding Edge” on Netflix. Follow the link, and read the article. If you have any kind of man made parts in your body, brace yourself. Then, come back, and read my rant.

This really “bugs” me…

In this information age, it is a daunting task to sift through all of the misinformation out there. Even seemingly small things, such as calling a tick a “Lyme Tick”, or assuming that only Dog ticks feast on dogs…SMH… can result in confusion, causing people to put off seeing a doctor, under the assumption that there is no risk.

If you have Lyme Disease, or any vector borne illness, you already know how difficult it is to be properly diagnosed, and treated. You have most likely been ridiculed, dismissed, or labeled “nuts”. Chances are, you have been told that your test results showed a false positive result, or, that there is no such disease in the area you live in.

This lack of concern, and denial, often results in chronic conditions, and a lifetime of pain.
