Just posting for the morning crowd, that Brooke Landau will be interviewed on her encounter with Lyme disease on ABC's "Good Morning America" show. They just announced that the story will air during the 8:00 hour.

Brooke has been a wonderful advocate for Lyme patients. She is one class act. Go Brooke!

Hi all,

I think it is vital that we respond with comments to ABC's online link to this report.

There are two different links. The one below is for comments. (Don't know if anyone at GMA is reading these or not??)

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Germs/Story?id=3530027&page=4


There is also a direct link to the GMA editors just above this that says "contribute". Here is that direct link:

Thanks, lymedesign. Did it already, and encourage others to respond also. Unfortunately, they tried very hard to negate what she was saying (the follow-up article online quotes Edlow and Wormser), but Brooke managed to get out a ton of info in a few sentences in the interview, and her story is so compelling it will be hard to forget.

Shaz,

Look above again, I edited it after I saw the direct link to the editors. Maybe this is the better place to post??

There are 152 comments on the Owen Wilson story. Let's hope we have more than that regarding Brooke's solid segment.

We're up to 98.

Get your family members and friends to share their experiences of living with someone with Lyme or having a friend with Lyme etc

Thanks for posting this shaz & thanks lymedesign for posting the link [Smile]

I sent the link to all my friends & family...with a note saying I think everything was very close to the truth except the mis-information about 24 hour theory of tick attachment.

Really happy lyme is getting national attention [Smile]

What amazes me is their is post after post on those comments that are duplicated, repitious and copied OVER and OVER..

What advantage does saying the same thing three times do for education??

Is that people double and triple posting?? Or the site making it LOOK like more people commenting by duplicating the posts.??

Spose ANYONE will actually read these,,,I mean people from ABC that can MAKE a difference, air MORE stories such as this one.??

I can only speak for myself, justdon, but since I double-posted, I can tell you what happened to me....

After I composed my response, I went to the link to register. After I registered, I was redirected back to the message board, and did not see my message either on the board or in the submission box, so I assumed it didn't send.

What really happened was it DID send, but with a lag before it appeared. So during that lag time, I re-posted. There is no way to edit after posting.

Unfortunate, just a glitch in the program.

I just noticed they deleted my post. :\

I heard they were doing that. Of course they'd delete mine. It took me a lot just to type it out.
