Back up.

Has everyone called?

Why is there such silence about this very important issue?

OMG, the response on the automated letters from NY State residents have been way, way too small----only something like 1,555 people as of last Thursday! Yikes, we need way more than that!

Please, please, do everything you can to get these out, including calling people, re-emailing people, re-posting, etc, etc. Whether they are in-state, or out of state.

REALLY IMPORTANT:

I have just lost my LLMD for the FOURTH time with NO warning!!!
They were all for complicated reasons, but all having to do with the pressure on these doctors not to treat Lyme. I am beside myself. This is so serious that it is beyond words.

1555 people???

Amazing. That does not even include all the patients of one doctor in NY. Why are these people not responding? Do they not know? Any lyme patient who is not affiliated with a support group or participating in an online lyme forum is not able to be reached when activism efforts are needed. They just find out they lost their doctor suddenly, and then they go hunting for another one. Without ever realizing that they are searching in an ever smaller pond with too many other people.

Yes, can you believe how small the response had been?? I know we are all sick, I know it is summer, I know that the people we contact don't get it, no matter what we say, but for God's sake, this is terrible!

NY is the most important state, in that it has the most and the most experienced LLMD's. If this doesn't pass, we are screwed. Sorry to be so frank, but I am up the creek without a paddle (see my other post).

Frankly, I can't believe how little discussion there has been about this Bill and the significance of it.

Post the link everywhere you can think of facebook, etc., send it to everyone one you know and ask for help--friends, family etc.. Ask them to forward it to everyone one they know.

I've been part of this lyme community for more then 15 years. I went up to Albany to join the protest way back when. How hard so many have worked for this, how long we have waited for this and it seems that no one is even interested but a small few.

No discussion?? Why?? No feedback from others on this site but a few, why? A response of only 1,555 people so far? Unbelievable.

We MUST prevail. We cannot let this slip through our fingers. If the Lyme community doesn't rally behind this, then we only have ourselves to blame. That means all of you on this site.

Help out, get involved and share your thoughts about whether you have helped out and spread the word.

Wake up people!! WAKE UP. Call the Governor. Go to activism and fill out the forms. They are there for both New York state residents and non-NY residents.

The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224

(518) 474-8390

Go to activism.

There's two different links. One for New York State residents and one for non. The signing of this bill into law affects everyone, not just New York State residents. How many of you see LLMD's in New York State?


You will find both links here:
