Okay, so. The IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America) is notorious in the Lyme community for their stodgy view on Lyme, and, most notably, chronic Lyme.
Their argument for decades has been, “if there are no antibodies, a bacterial disease is no longer active; therefore, it no longer exists in the body.” That’s more of […]
Before I begin this epic adventure in writing, I want to point out a few things:
Without follow-up from any of the involved parties, this falls under the umbrella of “speculation.” Because there are details that were added to try to “legitimize” the claim, some of the folks named in this may not actually be […]
I’m starting back on antibiotic treatment ASAP. It’s going to be more aggressive, with variants that also address Bartonella (which we can’t rule out – it was a possibility in May, as well) added to the mix. Instead of 2 at a time, I’ll now be on 3.

This month, I’ve experienced the following symptoms (moreso the past week):
bloating migraine w/vertigo and nystagmus unexplained weight gain in short period of time mood change lower abdominal cramping

I’m not going to talk about promises made, or private insurance for entrepreneurs and small business owners, or anything like that.
I’m going to talk about our particular plan, from Forrest’s place of business, and how we’re utterly screwed next year because of it. He works at a decent company that’s been fairly awesome about […]
[Before you read this: There are so many more people that have been awesome to me this year, and in years past, than there ever have been assholes. That may be why the assholes stand out so much. Being that they stand out, they annoy me greatly. If I’ve ever fussed at you, but I’m […]

From The Practical Tactical Podcast:
One internet poster said: “I never […]
Dear [alma mater] Career Services, specifically C. R. [edited from original Facebook post, because this is public – I’m airing a grievance, not trying to get someone fired]:
Sending an email entitled “Congratulations Graduate! Eleven Reasons Why I Will Never Hire You.” and introducing that as an article/discussion point in the forum is a terrible […]
Okay, so knowing one of the teens involved, I have this to say about her: she’s smart, she’s got talent, she’s very pretty, and she’s stronger than she thinks.
Yet she participates in shit like this (she’s the “sharer,” so I whited out her name and photo, along with he name and photo in the […]
It’s been one of THOSE days.
The days where you’re awakened by a phone call with bad news (even if it’s an answer you’ve been waiting for…it’s never fun to be told that your thyroid and hypothalamus have both just stopped giving a shit with regard to your T3 levels, and that your adrenal glands […]
