Help publicize late stage Lyme Disease

via wild_irises, who knows goodbadgirl, and also because a friend of mine recently lost a spouse to this disease.

Apparently Oprah is thinking about doing a show about Lyme Disease. Because it's expensive to treat, the US government doesn't want to admit that it exists.

More info: excerpt:
Here is what I'm asking you:

1) Re-post my original request and this post if you want to. Tell your friends, your co-workers, your family members. Cutting and pasting has never been easier or likely to help more people.

2)Register on and add your voice to the forum. 10 minutes or less of your time can make an enormous difference here.

Here is how:
Here is the link where you can post a message - if you are already a member of Oprah's community.

If you are not a member of the Oprah community, you will need to sign up first:
click on this link to sign up:

Once you have filled out the appropriate info -- easy stuff, name, username, email address, birth year -- then you will get an email to your email address: You'll get an email from Oprah's web people sending you an activation link that you will need to click on in order to get started. Then you can click on the above link and post your comments.

3)Educate yourselves and your loved ones about Lyme disease. How many of you on my relatively short friend's list suffer from "mysterious" and "hard to diagnose" auto-immune disorders and chronic infections? Too many of you. How many of your stories are familiar to me? Way, way too many.
Pass it on.
