The Infectious Diseases Society of America

has declared war on patients!

FIGHT BACK!

PATIENTS RIGHTS PROTEST!


Dear Friends,


Chronic Lyme disease has been banished as a disease!

No conventional or alternative treatments are recommended!

Doctors cannot make a clinical diagnosis anymore!

This is a pivotal moment in the history of Lyme disease.

It is time for patients to fight back!

This protest is part of a national agenda to get back control of our treatment and our lives.

Your participation is critical!

Your participation is critical!

Your participation is critical!

Patients are already being denied coverage. Doctors are backing off treating. There is no room for clinical experience with the new guidelines.

This insidious disease is devastating the lives of children, families and our communities, while much of the medical establishment continues to deny the severity of this public health crisis.

The Infectious Disease Society of America has released a new set of reckless guidelines that will IMMEDIATELY impact all of us.

Ruled by a few:

14 IDSA committee members created these new guidelines

14 IDSA committee members and the IDSA board were the only ones to vote & approve guidelines

Patients and treating physicians were denied input into guidelines.

This small group holds our health and lives in their hands.


Guidelines impact:

Diagnosis is no longer clinical but rather only by CDC positive surveillance blood test or EM rash,

Will miss 50% of Lyme cases leading to the potential for severe debilitating chronic disease.

Insurance companies will be empowered to deny coverage.

State medical boards have strong basis to prosecute our doctors.

School districts may utilize guidelines to not address special needs of students with chronic Lyme.

Child protective Agencies may file inappropriate charges in custody cases.


We need to hold the IDSA responsible and accountable and let the world know what they are doing.


New York Medical College/Westchester Medical Center is home to three of the IDSA committee members we will not quietly tolerate them harboring this group.


What you need to do!

Show up ~ Numbers count!

Bring family and friends.

If to far/ill to attend see website (Lymenews.org) to help with other protest efforts.

Print out and distribute attached flyer at your local doctor's offices, grocery stores, libraries etc.

Inform and update media


See you there.

I'll be there too. I read in one of the articles that Wormser stated something to the effect that he was puzzled by the animosity the guidelines have generated! Maybe he should sit in the offices of some LLMD's around the country so he's not so out of touch! There were 14 "authors" of these new guidelines..why wasn't any LLMD's allowed on the board to present their research supporting data?? I'm new to all this so forgive my ignorance. but I know enough to be pizzed off!!

Any ideas for signs for the rally??

We MUST be heard! And we WILL change history.

If the mountain won't come to us..

We will go to the mountain!

We are on a roll. We NEED you there. Buses will be headed to the site.. so do check every day for updates.. as they become available!

The dopes who wrote this incredibly ignorant trash only documented about 2 percent of all available medical literature... and if you will look at it.. much of it was their own SORRY stuff!

They don't know how to play nice. They can't be right if they admit there is more out there.. or allow us a voice.

Dirty rotten scoundrels!

I've been trying to find a way to get there from here.

I really do want to be there!

I've been doing searches and the cheapest airfare from here is $182 and change... combined with lodging, food, other transportation, etc.

I just don't have it. I'm sorry (and disappointed). [Frown]


Anyone that wants to make a cardboard cut out of me and bring it along for the ride, I'd appreciate it.

Tick Tac Toe - this subject line has got to go.

How about something plainer like MAJOR PROTEST IN VALHALLA, NY - SEE THE WORM SQUIRM - NOV 30

Because I don't think as many people will realize this is the long awaited info on the protest. Plus, the way lymenet has been down lately, it will be hard to get the scoop out to the troops. (Does anyone know why this is happening? Can someone find out? It is a real hindrance to this effort.)

Good point, Lou.

I read about this on the Yahoo! group, but couldn't for the life of me figger out why it wasn't on LymeNet yet...

NOW I see it IS!

A subject line change would definitely help.

I thought maybe we were just being crafty!

Though I admit I do love the sound of 'Wormser's gotta go' -- !

I read every single one a Mz. Tinny's posts most avidly, but LymeNet's time on the airwaves has been a bit sketchy lately...

Mobilize the troops!

"Tick Tac Toe - this subject line has got to go."

HA! Funny one you are.

I used that line because it is the "official slogan" for the protest that someone came up with a while back. I believe signs are being made up saying that line.

BUT.. how about this.. and I've been TRYING to get on Lyme Net and STAY.. but as you know it is down... then up.. then down. Several of my posts were lost as it went down while trying to start them!

Sooooooooooooo.. I will start a new one with that line now.. IF the board doesn't shut down before I can transfer it.

Please if you will.. we are in a tornado watch.. so I'll be shutting down.. may lose electric.. etc..

Keep the posts to the top.. without that red pin thingy... and having it "stuck" there. That thing is annoying to me.

Thanks!

[Big Grin]

Do check each day for updates to the site for the protest.. in case we can't get on here.
