When mentioning to anyone, the topic of "chronic lyme" - be very careful to tell them about ILADS, LymeDisease.org and the LDA.

Just stumbled upon this and it's chilling, shocking and so very wrong (in case someone new to lyme reads this).

Normally, I would suggest contacting the authors for correction - or balance but it seems the IDSA has control of Wikipedia in totality. Sigh.

Still, important to know this page is there so that we won't be so casual mentioning "chronic lyme" to those who would stop just with Wiki if they wanted to know a bit more.

The thing is, wikipedia can be edited by pretty much anyone. Unfortunately, some people treat it as a trusted source of information.
