More than 40 years into the tragedy of Lyme disease, those of us whose lives have been destroyed by it ask ourselves, “Is this another Tuskegee?” By all accounts, yes. It is an institutional form of murder. An accepted thing…not subject to review.
The fact of the matter is that “chronic Lyme,” the outcome that was eliminated from the case definition at Dearborn in 1994, is tick bite post-sepsis AIDS, an immunosuppression disease. Many different scientific groups agree on this matter, including the crooks who sought to capitalize on our suffering.
A dramatization of some actual, some probable and some made-up-for-kicks-but-could-be-true-events that comprise one of the most horrifying human rights abuses of all time: Lyme disease.
Forgive my bitterness, but I just might want my worst enemy to get Lyme disease.
