Introducing myself

Post by seanna » Fri 28 Nov 2008 16:29

Hi there,

I am new to the board and thought I'd introduce myself. I was going to post myself as a "LymeNet" defector but didn't think the humor would be appreciated. I cannot believe such a website (LN) is actually for real. There is so much negativity, in-fighting, stupid topics (Bionic whatever) even a fellow that posts his "experiments"--I am shocked and totally annoyed.

Sorry for this vent, I am looking forward to a more "balanced" approach. My doctor does combine abx with supplements and I know all about the candida diet. I don't feel comfortable with "whacky" approaches, crystals or things like that.

Other forms of things such as IRT are totally unproven and I would never support a site that even tolerated this and the other nonsense.

I've been sick for 5 1/2 years, misdiagnosed and so am starting treatment pretty late. I only hope I can learn from each and every one of you and keep a positive attitude (as not to bring anybody down) and get away from a lot of weird approaches from people who aren't even sick in the first place (my opinion only).

Look forward to interacting with you soon!

Hi Seanna,

Nice to meet you.

I could not have said it better myslef and as you probably read I did say exactly that on LNUSA (or something similar) and gor BLASTED.

So here is to optamism, Antibiotics/Detox/Herbs THAT WORK and that are clinically trialled and NO WHACK MACHINES OR CYSTALS.

Again Great to meet you

I'm afraid my Lyme-brain posted this in the wrong forum. Sorry, still learning!

Nice to meet you to Rianna, hope we get the chance to "chat" in the future! Here's to better health all around.

Well they can't blame their problems on us anymore.

Thank you all for your warm welcome, I already like your sense of humor!! No but seriously you guys seem so *knowledgeable*, my non-scientific mind has many questions, perhaps some too simple???

seanna,

Please feel welcome and free to ask any questions that you want here. No question is too simple, we are all always learning, and people just visiting this board that are new to Lyme disease can benefit from all levels of insight, discussion and information.
