“Maybe they could put their power to get on the television toward kids not being able to get medically treated for diseases (Lyme Disease is one that I can think of).”

“The moms need to lighten up! If they want to go after disgusting things on TV, there's plenty of real disgusting shows, and commercials to choose from. Why they picked on this one, is beyond me.”

“Decreasing in the south? Not true. Easily treated? Not when it's been undiagnosed/misdiagnosed, for months and years, as are most people with this disease. There are co infections with Lyme, that are as dangerous, or even more so. Because of the misinformation that has been spewed for many years, we now have a worldwide epidemic. https://www.facebook.com/worldwidelymeprotest?ref=ts&fref=ts

“I agree let the real truth be told lyme is hard to diagnose and treat and is capable of relapse.. tick come loaded with stuff not just lyme disease but also co infections depends on the cocktail in the tick that bites you.. The idsa even admits that the standard western blot is inaccurate and flawed, they still only test for one or two strains of Lyme out of about 300 world wide now.. Lyme disease is not only a epidemic in America but is becoming increasingly a big problem in Germany, Australia and abroad .. After 30 docs and 7 years i learned the hard way that the Guidelines for Lyme are Flawed and should be banned..”

“This monsterous disease knows no party affiliation. Most people don't have the blessing of an early diagnosis. I'm glad to see Lyme Disease getting national attention. It has been minimized and made fun of for years (cruel and definitely unusual and inhumane). It needs to be taken seriously, as the health menace that it truly is. Children are born with it, because of the denial of the disease, and the faulty testing. I would like to see the press get serious about this epidemic. If Dr. Phil can, so can you guys at Huffington Post.”

Feel Bad? It Could Be Lyme Unless Proven Otherwise

“Totally agree! It's wonderful to see real reporting on the Lyme epidemic! Thank you, so much for your accurate article!”

“Well said, patriotmember. One epidemic that isn't mentioned much is the Lyme Disease epidemic. Please learn about this cocktail of infections. May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. This year, May 10th and 11th, there will be a Worldwide Lyme Disease Protest. Patients are being denied diagnosis and treatment (sound familiar?), all over the world. Lyme Disease is every bit as prevalent as HIV, and Lyme patients are having to fight for their lives, as did the HIV patients, and our Veterans (Agent Orange, Gulf War Syndrome). There are, and have been "recommendations" and "guidelines" for Lyme Disease, that are keeping people from a diagnosis, and from recieving adequate treatment. If these are just "recommendations", then why is it that most doctors won't touch it with a ten foot pole, and the ones who do want to help their patients, risk losing their medical licenses if they do give them adequate treatment?”

“Thank you for your article, Mr. McCormick! May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, and I hope you will be covering it, this year. Most people (including our children) haven't been able to get diagnosed and treated early on in the illness. They are diagnosed with everything else, or "in your head". So happy to see media just starting to take a realistic look at this beast of a disease. Nobody deserves the horrors of the late stage of this monster, and it's co infections.”

“Thank you for your comment and for the suggestion about an article covering Lyme Disease Awareness Month. I appreciate your suggestion, as well as any other ideas you'd care to send me regarding future topics about Lyme Disease awareness. By the way, in case you hadn't heard, there will be a Worldwide Lyme Disease Protest on May 10 and 11, during which Lyme patients worldwide will be raising awareness about the dangers of this terrible disease.”

“Ah, the old "in your head" routine. I know it well. I went doctor to doctor for over 20 years, trying to find out what was wrong with me. Something was killing me. Dave 503 - unfortunately, I went to a bunch of doctors that thought like you. Then, near death in 2007, I found a REAL DOCTOR, and I finally started to get some answers. Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever were diagnosed. I'm sure there are more co infections to be found (Morgellon's being just one), that are in this cocktail of infections, but, they have to be tested for separately (a millionaire could probably afford it), and the testing for Lyme is inaccurate (false negatives). I'd been undiagnosed for so many years, that my children were born with it. Oh, and btw, rashes become sores, when someone can't get treated with antibiotics. So, that is supposed to somehow mean that they're all doing meth? Did all you people get your "MD" 's in a cracker jack box? lol! I hope this comment appears. It's the third one I've tried to send. Have a nice day.”

“Ah, the old "in your head" routine - I know it well. For over 20 years, I was the victim of doctors who thought alot like Dave 503 (I sure hope you don't have "MD" after your name, in real life, Davy, as there is more than enough arrogance, ignorance and cruelty that already infests the medical profession). Near death, in 2007, I finally found a REAL DOCTOR, and was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (there are other co infections, I'm sure, but I am unable to have the ways and means to get tested). I've had this cocktail of horror infections for so many years, undiagnosed, that my children were born with it. Not all people who have sores are doing meth. Maybe they're just left to die - rashes become sores, when they aren't dealt with. See, there, you learned something today. :)”
