Just wanted to let everyone know that the Boston IDSA guidelines Protest was a huge success!! Over 80 Lyme patients or family supporters showed up to protest in front of the Boston Conference Center. When we first got there an officer walked over to see what was going on. We told him and he said someone in his family is affected by lyme also. It was smooth sailling from there. We all gathered right across the street from the conference center with signs and chanting, "IDSA, our Lyme Disease won't go away." Throughout the day IDSA doctors came over to either take pictures or video, some to talk to us, and one that yelled at us and called us crazy. (Durland Fish Phd). But that's ok, we got our points across. I was really pleased that some actually seemed genuinely interested in what we going through and wanted to hear about the research not only about Lyme but about the co-infections. Job well done fellow lymie! See you next year at the next one in California!
