I've spent the evening doing lots of searching on this board and also on the internet in general to find out what it is like to be a Lyme patient in CT. What info I have found is either contradictory or perhaps outdated.

Are there any links someone can direct me to that might explain the laws regarding the treatment of Lyme in CT?

Or can someone give me a brief summary? You can make it as basic and simple as you want. Actually, it's probably better that way! I have issues with reading comprehension... Pretend I'm 8 years old and you're explaining it to me, lol.

There is a new law that protects physicians, but there has been one Lyme physician who has been persecuted severely by the Medical Board in CT. This has caused extreme fear for other doctors. Though the law offers protection, the medical board knows how to get around it by simply bringing up charges and claiming they are not "lyme related." To date, they have gotten away with murder, so to say.

At least one good new LLD has cropped up that I know of, but LLDs are scarce in CT, extremely expensive, some don't take insurance, and have waiting lists. Most are located on one side of the state, closer to New York. The few that we have, have been around for years.

At least three of the LLDs in CT are top LLDs, one in particular is very well known.
