The CDC is a political beauracracy that is in the business of surveillance and monitoring.

They are not in the business of treating actual patients and thus have no direct experience or contact with them.

The clearly offer the disclaimer that their testing guidelines and treatments are for surveillance and monitoring purposes, not intended for clinical use.

Lyme is extremely complicated. We wish it would be so easy as to say take this ABX for 2 months and that's all we can do for you.

You think treating your depression is tricky? Lyme makes your depression look like child's play.

Anyone wishing to comment on the topic, one way or other, doesn't matter, should refrain from doing so until they know more than a cherry picked view of it.
