This study is amazing (attached at the bottom of the page at the link below)!

I wrote a PR for it just to try to get it some added attention at the public level. (Please feel free to share and/or write your own.)

PRESS RELEASE- When Your Happy Place Isn't So Happy!

Live spirochetes found in genital lesion showing once again Lyme can be sexually transmitted.

Thanks so much for posting Tinny! So glad you're still here doing important work for all of us.

As for the study! Yes! And it is about time for more concrete and hopefully hard-to-ignore evidence! (Pun inteded.)

Glad you both liked it. Thanks for the kind words too!

In my opinion, we still need to suggest Lyme can be sexually transmitted so people will know and be able to use protection as they would with any other sexually transmitted disease.

And I do believe they make lime-green, glow in the dark protection too!

Call me confused about this study. They found a spirochete in a painful lesion. Does that mean it is only or the main way it is transmitted, presumably by a blood to blood transfer? Does the recipient also have to have an open sore?

I'm assuming that the overwhelming percentage of women do not have erosive vulvovaginitis, the condition where the spirochetes were found. I wish they would write this stuff in layman's terms.
Thanks for any elucidation.

I remember Tincup wrote Google was deleting files(?) or something and that she was scrambling to save everything.

It's there and it happens. My poor boyfriend has been sick the last few days, feels like he was hit by a truck and we are thinking now I might have gotten him sick [Frown] He dealt with Lyme horribly about 10 years ago. I had high EBV titers a few months ago when I first got diagnosed so wondering too if he has that maybe?

Hey Hoping...

Thanks for bringing that up for Lisa K.

You are right. I have been working- several months earlier on night and day- trying to save as much as possible and get it onto new websites.

The project was 10 thousands times harder than expected and I am a little bee hind. (Ok, a big bee hind, but don't tell anyone. HA!)

Since everything wouldn't fit as before- the sites won't hold as much- I had to make new sites for many of the topics.

Sexual transmission is now listed under "Sexual" on the new "Modes of Transmission" site.

It also has congenital info, blood transfusions, bugs, etc.

Hope you all can find what you need and do excuse me please because they aren't all done yet. I am still plugging away at them when able.

[group hug]
