Lymies of the world, we still don’t have disease recognition, accurate testing, sufficient research dollars, Lyme awareness in every state and country, and full insurance coverage for treatment. We should at least get … proper spelling. Seriously — “Lyme” is four letters. Why the struggle?
It’s never an encouraging sign when a doctor does this:
Another unfortunate spelling variant you may have seen is “Lymes.”
My relative made that comment to me more than a year ago, and unfortunately I did not have this comeback until, er, now. She still doesn’t believe in “Lymes” disease.
I really did see a preexisting conditions list that said “Lyme’s disease, chronic or symptomatic.”
Not a great way to get disease recognition.
Finally, you never know what a Random Drunk Guy will say …
Happy Lyme-not-Lyme’s Awareness Month and wishing you all a low-symptoms day!
