they did wonders for AIDS. can't they help us? anyone know if they are involved?

Isn't it our right to choose our own treatment, and not have the IDSA choose it for us, or choose our doctors?

If we were all men, or all women, all of one race or sexual orientation,

They (ACLU) could claim that treatment is being denied,

Research is being steered, etc via Prejudice (sp?).

Too many differences in us despite the same Lyme nightmare.

Hugs,

i see, so because when AIDS first started it was mostly gay men, thats why they got involved. I know I am grasping at straws here, its just out of frustration.
I guess a lot is being done legally with the AG of CT investigation and the federal bill 741. i just am being impatient.

Dear Roro,

I think we all feel your frustration, but think big picture.

Money, money, money.

If they (IDSA) acknowledge chronic Lyme disease, the cost to the insurance companies alone would

Probably be staggering enough to bankrupt a couple.

Possible cascade effect which could throw the economy into chaos.

(Can someone say depression?)

Just My Very Humble Opionion. [Big Grin]

Hugs,

Geneal
