This sure looks like taking your own single experience and "projecting" it at others.
That's the whole point, as I believe I have said several times, now.
What this thread was intended to speak to is how we think about the disease and how we think about "curing" it...and how our own perceptions may alter the outcomes for good or bad.
And what I am saying...(a simple point)...is that our perceptions of the disease itself stem from our OWN experience with it...what we recognize in others' accounts as being authentic or ringing true is what we recognize as being similar to our own experience.
What I did NOT go on to say is that others' experiences may be different...as that I thought that was understood.
It was just an aside...I meant that when I read people saying that...I don't understand how that could be as it seems to me that Lyme disease is so much more sudden and severe...which is understandable isn't it? Trying to explain my own perception of the disease, and what I would think is an obvious point: we all see the things from the filter of our own experience.
No insult or inference was intended, okay? I am pretty sure that I know what I meant.
I also said this...did you notice this, please?
Nevermind...Not saying that it's not possible...just saying that it doesn't fit with what I, myself, experienced.
