2016 was a massive year! Events of the year- Professor Peter Irwin's research
paper on pathogen hosting ticks, leading American expert Dr Richard Horowitz submission
into the Senate Inquiry, the Senate Inquiry itself and of course all of the media
attention across the year. Lyme disease and tick borne illness has been discussed on A Current Affair, SBS Insight, Triple J Hack, ABC News and Radio, The Sydney Morning Herald just to name a few! Whether this news has been positive or negative it is still raising attention and spreading the word. Most everyday Australians know about Lyme and are learning it's here and something to be cautious about. That's a fantastic achievement over the past years.
Comments and reviews - the good, the bad and the ugly!
With the very common comments like "Lymes disease" and "good to see it in the Lyme Light" and the ever constant "Call it what you like, we don't care! Just help us!" popping up all over social media we thought we would collate some of 'the Good, the Bad and the Ugly' comments for your reading pleasure.
Hopefully you get a giggle or some inspiration too.
-"Absence of proof is not proof of absence"
-"The conspiracy theories in this article are bizarre"
-"So if a specialist sends the blood work to be tested in the US where they know what they're looking for, and the test comes back positive...why do doctors here refuse to acknowledge it?"
-"Common things are common. It sounds like depression/mental health problems."
-"This is not Lyme or Lyme like or tick borne disease..this is humpty dumpty syndrome...this is what I call it now. ...i feel I will never be put back together..".
-" I would like to propose we create a nude women's calendar with all proceeds going to the LDAA, and would like to appoint myself chief recruiter. Applications close December 31st." :-)
