In case you didn't catch the 20/20 segment on Lyme Disease, here is a small segment:

What was good about the show: 

It brings about awareness about Lyme Disease. It also educates people on how Lyme symtpoms are always different in each person. One person may have sore joints, while the next has memory issues. There are no one set of symptoms for tick borne diseases. I was also glad to see co infections brought up.

What I'd like to see changed for future shows
, is that first of all, stop asking people if they are faking it. You would never ask a cancer patient that! Elaina did a good job defending herself, but why shoudl she have to? 

Secondly, why is Lyme always lumped in with such things as eating rocks? This is a serious disease. It can be fatal. Why not put it on a show all of it's own, or among cancer or HIV shows?

Starring in this video is the little tick I found on my neck yesterday morning. Hope it doesn't creep you out too bad!
