Re: live blood microscopy

Hello Dr. MacDonald, You say microscopic observation of unstained blood is insufficient to detect Babesia.

Re: CDC Video: "Feeling Worse After Treatment?"

I put together what was, for me, a huge puzzle of unfortunate medical events that caused my symptoms. I had a partial hysterectomy on top of an underlying long untreated thyroid problem. This caused my body to completely crash, having no hormones in my body whatsoever. It took several months for my...

Re: Internet Shills

Oh wow, thank you! I take it as a compliment that you think I am a hired professional. I have never posted on this site before, although I did search it quite a few times while thinking I had Lyme. The reason why I didn't say what I had been diagnosed with is the same reason I listed in the post. E...
