I posted this in medical because she's got a couple of really interesting medical things to say. A little confused by her dress though.

Thanks so much for that. Good to know there is a new neurologist LLMD.

Excellent. Absolutely excellent and intelligent presentation. Everything she says is right on.

What's most confusing though is the reporter who must not be aware of internet EDUCATION websites regarding lyme such as ILADS, LymeDisease.org, LDA . . . .

It's not all Twitter and Facebook or "social".

The internet is a LIBRARY; A UNIVERISITY, too, of sorts. And that's what I think the doctor was speaking to as to how (good) doctors can be helpful on the web via education.

Patients not only are influenced by other patients on "social media" they can read ARTICLES, find BOOKS, see lectures, etc.

The internet is not at all the same as social media. We can - and I think LymeNet is a good example, too, of it going beyond that and point to the wise & good doctors in the field.

Good to know she has presented and is a member of ILADS.

As to her attire, keep in mind she is a major fashion city, I find it very cheerful and blue is a calming color. She seems at home in it. My guess is that that design show some of the cultural influences of her travels or heritage perhaps - or just some creativity.

On dark grey days, it's nice to see a professional freshness.

Another thought as to her attire:

You know, the very slight movement of the yoke detail could also be used as a diagnostic tool. Patients who might be distracted and comment or shift their visual focus . . . that can be a good clue.

That there is no sharp tonal contrast and it's just blue and white works and won't likely zoom out anyone's balance system.

Good thing it's not contrasting stripes or checks, though. Those really toss me to the floor.

Still, it's just a very fresh feeling that she conveys in this. I can see that it would be hard to find good business clothes that convey good vibes.

Major thing, though, is her intelligence, willingness and courage to have taken up lyme as a specialty.

I thought it was interesting that she's finding autoimmune encephalitis and treating with IVIG; she's just doing that pretty aggressively without making it a huge deal. If people come to her describing extremely longlived neurological effects that goes right on the table.

Also that Lyme should involve Neurology right away instead of years down the road.

Yeah, IMO, all lyme is neuro-lyme, from the get-go.

Within just a dozen hours after being bitten by an infected tick, the nervous system tissue all through the entire body can be infected.

All body systems / organs are affected.

Because of the vestibular and neuro impact of lyme / TBD, our visual systems are challenged by intricate visual detail & even the very slightest movement.

Awesome link Jordana.

I watched the interview and READ the interview. To read the entire interview, go to video link and then click on title of video.

Many additional references in printed interview such as a breakdown of other topics covered at the ILADS 2016 conference.

I googled Theoharis Theoharides MD/PH.D.
He has research papers listed that will keep you quite busy studying.

I have been reading for over an hour. I m definitely smarter than most doctors I have wasted my time seeing. Too bad I can't retain that information when an argument arises.

I first thought you all were being a bit picky about her clothes rather than her message, till I saw the blue dress. Oh my!

It is lovely, but yes, it blows me out of the water! Moving patterns like that is like being on a small boat in a big storm. Back and forth, up and down. Ugh!

Her message is good though. And she seems like a sweetheart.

Smart sweetheart.

Hey J- you made me laugh. "Hooray". HA!

Good to know blue.

TC she does seem like a smart sweetheart. I was checking out her website and considering going to see her -- apparently she does consults with pediatric dr J also.

But she's in NYC. No way could I navigate NYC.

Damn she's hot! Even in that Pocohontas shirt LOL Just because I have Lyme doesnt mean I cant appreciate beauty :-P And that right there is perfection! To be honest, she'd be hot if she was wearing a black garbage bag hah The clothes dont matter when you have all the right equipment :-) I need LLMDs like this!

we need about 1,000 dr.'s just like her. She seems smart, totally with it, understanding.... I think she has potential to reach people and teach them about lyme.

Christopher,

The dress can be distracting and comments about that are important given that many with lyme do have vestibular challenges with such patterns, etc. So those kind of comment do fit and are helpful here for those who are just coming to understand why some patterns are so disorienting.

However,

While I'm sure you mean no harm, such comments about her sexuality are really demeaning, though. She is a professional and presents a polished appearance.

How would it be if we commented on just how "hot" every one is that we meet. It's reduces them to a sex object - even if they are smart, such comments are insulting and icky on the receiving end.

Comments and mind-set that place someone in the position of a sexual object are not good for that person - it's an invasion, really. And our children of the world can be harmed by such a way of thinking, too.

How this feels may be something a women would need to explain to you, though. I remember having such comments made about me (long, long ago) at my first professional jobs in journalism. It was very, very icky and invasive. It was a verbal sexual assault, really.

Yeah.. I don't buy into that at all. I found her hot, so I said she was hot. It is certainly not an insult and I am so over political correctness. I have no doubt she's a skilled and knowledgable doctor, and my comment about her beauty is absolutely no different than you commenting on her dress. Her dress has nothing to do with her as a doctor. We need to stop this crazy thought control going on in society.

The dress does have to do with those with lyme who have vestibular & visual challenges with busy design and movement. That's the only point about the dress, here. And it's an important point.

"Damn she's hot!" as your starting comments takes it right to sex.

Comments about her sexuality aren't about political correctness, that is not why it's wrong. Politics has nothing to do with it.

It's about being intimately personally invasive into a person's sexuality. They should be able to do their job without comments from strangers about their sex appeal.

It's about respect for them. Respect.

And, such behavior can dissuade other girls / women from public presentations so, in the end, we can all loose if bright & smart minds are not treated with the same respect most would want for their daughters / sisters / nieces / wives . . . themselves.

Would you want your presentation where you work - or where you might want to work - to be open for such comments so all your colleagues could all judge your "hot" appeal? Probably not.

It would be inappropriate because it would be invasive and disrespectful when - even if your intelligence or competency would be acknowledged as part of the "package" -

- but when projecting thoughts out loud to others -

sharing with others in a public gathering / forum as to whether someone would be the object of anyone's sexual desire [how else would one interpret "Damn she's hot!" adding your tongue hanging out in your first post with: :-P ].

Well, to the person in that position, that's a very demeaning - and unfair - place to be for anyone, really.

And that's no joke in real lives of real human beings.

if women would dress more appropriately, they would lessen the chance of becoming sex objects.

I have no idea what the lady looked like. Just amazes me how women think they can dress however and not expect a man's mind to go there.

I loved this doctor! I am wondering if I might have autoimmune induced encephalitis that could be helped by IVIG now. It has never been explained to me so I could understand it. She did an incredible job. Thanks so much for sharing this!

foxy loxy

you say "if women would dress more appropriately, they would lessen the chance of becoming sex objects.

I have no idea what the lady looked like. Just amazes me how women think they can dress however and not expect a man's mind to go there. " (end quote)

1. you comment " have no idea what the lady looked like" - you are judging without even seeing what you are judging about

- all you have to do is click onto the video to see that she was very appropriately dressed. A round collar, well fitting dress of appropriate length.

The first comments on attire had to do with the busy pattern being distracting for some. Replies were about how that is common for those with lyme, nothing personal about her.

Christopher J's comments were the only ones of a sexual nature with drooling icon.


2. Aside from the dress being very professional in nature and most certainly not suggestive . . . That blaming the victim - saying they deserve it for how they dress is not just baseless but, in the case, has zero to do with the sexual comments. zero.

Your suggestion that this doctor deserves sexual comments on a public comment board and drooling icons about her very professional appearance -- that it's her fault -- is a very sad comment on our maturity as a society.

Even if we were all to wear no clothes at all, our inner humanity and what we do with our energy is what deserves attention. Even at nudist colonies, people can treat each other with respect and - gasp - eye contact can be kept during conversations.

We need doctors. We need doctors who are not afraid to do presentations. This is not the treatment she deserves.

Keebler, Foxy & Christopher... perhaps think of it this way.

It isn't the words, it is the way they are taken by any individual.

Like stress. No one can "stress" you, it is the way it is perceived. One person may be stressed by an action, another not at all.

Good example here- on the TV show The West Wing.

First see this clip (mixture). Go to about 2:20 and watch 10 seconds (to 2:30). (Although the whole thing is kind of cute if you want to watch it.)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eQRhL2E_Uo&index=9&list=PL20FFD50609377171

Then see Ainsley's response to Sam's 'you can make a dog break his leash" comment.

I have a feeling foxyloxy made that comment before seeing the interview. She was probably responding to the comment about the way the doctor dressed, made in the beginning of the thread.

I also immediately thought that the doctor must be wearing something provocative by that comment. Then when I saw her outfit, I realized I had it all wrong.

yes dpei, you nailed it! [Wink] that is why I said I wasn't condemning her... I didn't see her. Only made a general comment. [Smile]

I kinda wish I could get IVIG, but I failed the preliminaries... whaaa!
