Thank you for this program.

Thank you for this program. I've had Lyme for two years, saw 15 - 20 doctors until I finally was diagnosed CDC positive for Lyme Disease in April 2013. I am pretty much bedridden, starting to see slight improvements since starting treatment in May 2013. Before the diagnosis, I was told I had fibromyalgia, that I was hypochondriac, a psychologist told me I had brain somotization. This is a terrible, painful disease and is crippling. Thank you for the radio program.

thank you dennis, marc, and

thank you dennis, marc, and jessica for this interesting 33 minute program with a wide arrange of topic information.

i've had chronic lyme disease 44 yrs. last christmas; 35 years MISDIAGNOSED by 40-50 drs; UNACCEPTABLE!

i had to pursue over and over trying to find out WHY i was so sick and once BELIEVED every drs. diagnosis/opinion of my unlimited 125 symptoms and illnesses diagnosed.

because we go to ILADS, international lyme and associated disease society drs, who treat us LONGER THAN 30 DAYS of antibiotics, supplements, and/or alternative therapies, health insurance companies REFUSE to pay their FAIR SHARE of $$ for treatments/appts. calling it "experimental therapy".

health insurance cos. follow CDC rules which IDSA, infectious disease society of america, made up WITHOUT THE INVOLVEMENT of ILADS drs. input who treat long term.

lyme disease and all vector-borne diseases are a RICH PERSON'S disease.

we lose our jobs, health insurance, spouses, custody of kids, family/friends, homes, bankruptcy, and the ultimate sacrifice .... committing SUICIDE since our PAIN can't be control and we have lost everything!

I believe this is the book I

I believe this is the book I read a few years ago that I thought made a strong case that Lyme Disease was developed and accidentally released from a poorly managed gov't warfare research lab:

Lab 257: The Disturbing Story of the Government's Secret Plum Island Germ Laboratory

Isn't the City and County in

Isn't the City and County in Santa Rosa held accountable to the State of California? What is Gov Brown's office doing about these predator cops terrorizing kids and their familites? .

If the City and County of

If the City and County of Santa Rosa are stuck in the "force is more" mentality, I"d go to the next level, the California legislators. It sounds like they are getting nowhere at the local level.
