Taping is next week and they're asking for questions, stories, and requests for a full show dedicated to Lyme.

"
On The Marc Media Update:

Documentary: UNDER OUR SKIN will investigates the
untold truth of Lyme disease and will be featured on The Doctors, a nationally syndicated show, taped in LA.

"They are asking for people to submit questions about Lyme disease for their panel of doctors to talk about on the show. They also want to hear your stories. Please ask them to do an entire show, not just a segment on UNDER OUR SKIN and the seriousness of Lyme disease. If you have not seen the show - check your local listings. It's syndicated so it is on different times and different channels depending on where you live. Please spread the word and ask people to write in."

The taping is next week so there is not much time. Thanks again for your support.

I just emailed my story to them and a request for a whole show on lyme.

Thanks for posting this!

Do we trust that group on making logical and informative statements or are they going to muck it all up with the normal medical consensus about chronic lyme?

It's great they are taping a show about it but I don't see this going in the direction we would like it to.

Do they invite guest doctors? Someone like Dr. B on the show would help tremendously. Otherwise, I see them following a script based on CDC guidelines.

I am with ott70 on this.

They talk a lot but basically reinforce CDC BS.

I will contact them.

I agree with ott...especially considering the way they spoke about lyme disease the last time they segmented it on their show. These docs are all surface. (imo)

I agree that they simplify everything and follow the CDC, but it couldn't hurt to send them our stories.

If we do nothing but question them, they won't stand a chance at telling the truth because they will not have heard it.

They need to hear the truth (from us) and then whether or not they do the right thing with it is out of our hands.

...that's what I thought too.

You should have seen the way they pushed the H1N1 vaccine.

They are trendy not intelligent. On very basic things they state the obvious or some non-traditional safe treatment. In either case they offer FYI which makes them appear helpful.

But, for the most part, they are very limited and misleading...not a good mix with lyme. [shake]

IF this thread grows and the opinions are all the same about the doctors not being able to fully understand and report accurate info as we know it..

THen I suggest one of us Cut and Past the Thread and send it to them to read through...!! Maybe they will get the message there is a whole REAL world outside the CDC!!!!!!!

Spring, I included some of that info in my story. How the test are inaccurate and how doctors and the CDC say we don't have LD in our state, yet I know so many ppl just in my county with LD; and so on.

I still have a strong feeling they will go along with the IDSA views and it will be very misleading to the general public.

But we still have to keep fighting to get the true message out there. Hopefully more lymies will come along and post their stories.

Why have so FEW members responded to this ? ? ?

I know the "some are members but don't post" excuse, but why so much complaining on this site [cussing] but SO LITTLE ACTION
[confused]

Yes I am being rude - like yelling at the kids to get their attention ?

How about a goal of 1,000 contacting The Doctors ?
How do we do that ?

I contacted my wonderful llmd, then contacted the leader of the Mi. chapter who put out an alert to get the message out far and wide. Keep your fingers crossed, now I will write and send my story. Good Luck to us.

PS Do they ever have guests on their show? I've only watched a couple of episodes. Wouldn't it be awesome if one of our LLMDs would be/could be a guest?
