I was going to do my usual list of quotes to share, but I just didn't feel like it.

I really liked this statement:
" Although it is difficult to determine whether these coinfections occurred with one vector or transmission event or over the course of multiple events,

one aspect is clear: A coinfection with these pathogens leads to difficulty clearing either infection

and the antibiotic treatment should differ for individuals infected with multiple pathogens."

One of my favorite LLMDs wrote in his new book "Toxic" that Bartonella can be even more difficult to treat than Bb itself. And I would believe it too, based on our family's experience in the past, but that was over a decade ago, long before the new antibiotic Dapsone became available for treating persistent Lyme.

I've heard Ginger Savely speak at Morgellons conferences, saying that Dapson is what is getting Morgellons patients well. She also writes about Dapson in her book on Morgellons.

crid=3DT1B3TLUR5VV&keywords=ginger+savely&qid=1558444951&s=books&sprefix=Ginger+%2Cstripbooks%2C156&sr=1-1] /dp/0997920025/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3DT1B3TLUR5VV&keywords=ginger+savely&qid=1558444951&s=books&sprefix=Ginger+% 2Cstripbooks%2C156&sr=1-1[/URL]

Dapson is the TB drug that Ying Zhang at Johns Hopkins is researching now in his series of papers on persistent Borrelia. Zhang came from the field of TB, which is another very resistant germ to treat, which is why Zhang was already familiar with Dapson.

Last, but not least, the most easily accessible info on the use of Dapson, including dosages, can be found in the fREE publication by another popular LLMD, but you must sign up on his TreatLyme website first in order to receive the free electronic version. Otherwise, this book is available on Amazon at a very reasonable price. (Chap. 12 is entitled "Dapson for Lyme Persisters.")
crid=1J00I6XMKV2OC&keywords=marty+ross+lyme&qid=1558444841&s=books&sprefix=Marty+Ross%2Caps%2C148 &sr=1-1-catcorr

Folks, IMO, it's game over for late-stage, chronic (persistent) Lyme disease now with this newest triple antibiotic combo which includes a cell wall inhibiting antibiotic (usually a third generation cephalosporin) plus a protein synthesis inhibiting antibiotic (usually doxycillin) plus the addition of this relatively new TB drug (Dapson).

We'll all be able to retire soon and enjoy life once again because chronic Lyme patients are finally going to be treated effectively and will begin to recover their health once again -- although the treatment period can take several years.

So, I guess that means that we can't retire yet because, even with this triple antibiotic combo, they are going to lead a lot of help and support in order to be successful with such a difficult treatment protocol.

But at least, we do have hope now for an effective -- dare we use the "C" word, "cure", yet?

I'm more optimistic than I've ever been before about the future of Lyme disease because once an effective cure has been accepted by mainstream medicine, then Lyme disease will no longer be a dreaded diagnosis -- and it will no longer be as politically controversial either.

Wanna' bet on it? A shiny dime to a dollar -- your dime, my dollar -- says I'm right. But I'll never collect on this bet because it isn't going to happen overnight.

I only hope that I live long enough to witness how it all turns out. That's because I've been dealing with this problem most of my adult life, as the parent of an affected child (who is now a recovered middle-aged adult).

Nevertheless, I'm starting to celebrate victory over the politics of Lyme disease already because I can now recognize that our side Is indeed winning, at long last. Yea!
