A look inside the complicated politics of Lyme disease.
Nothing much came of that either. Though it's interesting that the elder Bush's statement from back then acknowledges that if Lyme disease isn't treated early, "serious complications may develop that can affect the heart, nervous system or joints," which contradicts the medical establishment's current stance that chronic Lyme doesn't exist.
Daryl Hall knows that being wealthy and famous, he and Bush had it good and have access to the level of treatment the rest of us often struggle to find. The difference is Hall gives a shit.
He says, "I was one of the lucky ones because I went to the top. But I've heard countless stories of frustration and misdiagnosis and needless suffering of Lyme patients because of incompetence and strange agendas."
Rock on. (T.M.)
