                    My Lyme Opinion

I was asked to submit my thoughts on the present Lyme issues. I submited the following. 

Dear Journal,


   My cause for better Tick-borne diseases understanding by the medical community and higher education is not filtering through the channels of Big U. learning channels. But is coming from the grassroots fieldwork of Medical professionals that understand, there is something wrong from top-tier learning, down to the medical advisor to the patient. When only the patient has the answers to their own successes or demise. 

 This medical climate through Covid Pandemic has also clouded the importance of Tick disease issues and increased the Lyme and co-infections such as Bartonella, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis among many others infectious spread by at least 150,000 victims per year in the USA alone. Up from 425,000 annually (This comes from a CDC post recently)

 There will not be a valued medical Tick defense system until all medical professionals, from first responders to specialists of all areas of medicine stop blowing this responsibility off to the next office.  

 We must educate the complete medical system. The best way at this time as I see it is to start listening to the surviving speakers and educators and the Lyme Literate community that is in place at Ilads. ( International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society ) and many very knowledgeable characters fighting for updated Lyme medical practices.

 We must restart learning global Tick disease prevention practices that have been diluted through population growing neglect and medical gaslighting for higher profit-taking and misdiagnosis from/to the patient.

 There are great Lyme prevention programs available in the ready-to-educate world. 

We need to be using this now.

Thank you for your time,

To All,
Alica Cashman shared the following important information:
"Columbia Brain Depository will take your brain.  I made arrangements with my family to contact Columbia upon my death and send them my medical records ASAP."

--- some info from their website ---
To further characterize the extent of involvement and damage by Borrelia burgdorferi in humans, brain, spinal cord, and other tissues from people who have had Lyme disease at some time in their life are collected for current and future investigation at the NYS Psychiatric Institute.  People with a history of well-documented Lyme disease, which must include a positive Lyme blood test, should contact us at  .  It is most important that your next of kin or other individual who will be responsible for arrangements after your death be made aware of your wishes, provided with the Columbia Lyme Center contact information, and be informed that they should contact us immediately after your death.  Putting aside in a safe place your medical history and laboratory tests is very important as this information is necessary to review before we can conduct the post-mortem investigation. 
In the event that death has just occurred or is imminent, time is of the essence.  If this is the case, please call this emergency number 646-549-8880

Thank you for considering this most invaluable donation to further scientific understanding of the neuropathologic effects of Lyme disease. Please let others know about this,Jill
