Over the last two weeks from this forum I learned about the documentary "Under Our Skin" and was lucky enough to see a showing of it in Seattle this past weekend. I hope many many people can see it or get a copy of it and show it to as many people as they can. I was having my first appointment with a "new" doctor in Seattle(who also has lyme herself) and saw the flyer in her office that they were having a screening that night. This same doctor had organized the screening. This documentary is an eye opener. It makes you sad, and angry but at the same time gives you hope. Gives you hope that lyme and its treatment will someday come to the forefront, be recognized, and be treated correctly. It will help others who don't have lyme realize what we are going through. I didn't know the severity of untreated lyme and the fatality of it. It makes me want to impress on all the people I know who have other undiaganosed diseases like Parkinson, MS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue to at least have a Western Blot Test to rule out lyme. The movie talks about several doctors who have lost their license by treating lyme because they weren't following the guidelines of the IDSA. It talks about the controversy surrounding IDSA in creating these guidelines. This is a powerful documentary so if you get a chance see it. The movie is one more way for lyme disease to be recognized by others as a disease that needs to be taken seriously.
