It is my opinion that when another Lyme Disease vaccine comes out it will be as dangerous as the last because it will be made, tested and judged by approximately the same group of "researchers". Same thinking... different names.

Please do not take the next vaccine when it comes out. Let those who make it, take it. Last time, none did. They all had their excuses but none took it.

I agree with you brainless. We can no longer rely on our government agencies to have our best interests at heart.Government agencies are now so intertwined with corporations....that it is now difficult to separate the two.

This is why I tend not to get excited about Bills being passed...no matter what they sound like they will accomplish. It is my feeling that unless we expose this corruption and demand a restructuring ...that we all have a say in...then we will not get anywhere. It should be very interesting to see what any future Bills actually accomplish.

We need to find ways to support private researchers whom we trust...to find the needed solutions to this pandemic. The Founding Fathers of our country continually stressed the fact that we musn't let government become too big....as this is very dangerous. That it is up to the people to keep reigns on the government. The government is supposed to answer to the people...not the other way around!

Thanks Heather.....If any of you feel that you are happy that Red Flags is posting alot of info concerning Lyme disease lately...they would be happy to hear from you. Also any of you can get comments and or articles posted. You can also just send ideas to Red Flags of what you would like to see on their site concerning Lyme. We can all play a role! :=)

Thanks Margie for being well enough to write this.

I found it particularly interesting that the Quackwatch piece used very old research to support their claims. This was the stuff I read back when I first realized I had lyme. Hello, this is the 21st Century.

I expected to read something new, but the info and data Quackwatch presented is out of date.

If I were grading it as a college research paper, significant points would be lost for not using current material.

When I told my bro (THE DOCTOR) I had lyme he sent me to quack busters.

My husband and I laughed so hard we almost split a gut when it talked about "abx seeking" people and herx was just a "figure of our imaginations."

Someone needs to tell my baby (then 3) now 4--that the herx he was feeling wasn't real--neither was that 102 degree temperature he usually runs!

I just went to the Red Flags website, and I would not give them my last penny. I find sites like that depressing...would rather come here and get good, quality and free advice and information. Why give them money??...not me.

Perplexed,
The truth is often depressing...but we can't ignore the facts. Life is difficult....a fact.
Having Lyme disease is difficult....a fact.
A website that is willing to allow us a forum to express the facts on Lyme disease, depressing or not, is priceless.

I direct a support group, and receive phone calls everyday from people across this country looking for answers to why they are sick. Most have found me because of information posted on a website or one of my post here on Lymenet. You don't think that some of the post on Lymenet are depressing?

My point is any websites that offers people
direction on where to get the help they are seeking needs to be supported. Please rethink
your post.

Best,
SandiB

I think another point here is that if we care about those who are not yet diagnosed then we have to get the information out to the more mainstream news websites which are not just focused on Lyme Disease. People with M.S, ALS, Bi Polar, Alzheimer's, CFS, FM, Lupus., etc , etc....do not go to Lyme websites because they do not think they have lyme.

Red Flags does not take advertisers because they do not want their information tainted by the wishes of the advertisers. This is why they charge a subscription fee.

When one reads the other articles on Red Flags, we can glean ideas on how other medical conditions may relate to Lyme. Lymenet is a wealth of Lyme info....but it mostly reaches those who know they have lyme.

If we want more numbers, power and strength behind our cause, then we need to reach larger numbers of people. Again , Lymenet reaches mostly those who know or suspect they have lyme.The nation is intentionally being divided up into bogus subsets of illnesses. This keeps everyone divided and when everyone is divided ..there is no hope for improvement.

Most mainstream newspapers do not tell the whole unvarnished truth and certainly not the government...so we are left to our own imaginations as to how to spread the word. I feel ...at this point anyway, that this is more powerful and important than legislation
