  1. Any chance of a venomous snake bite?
  2. Ragsdale ruined my unit so they won't get near any home of mine again. Air Command is amazing. PM me and I'll give you contact information. Office may be in Marietta but part of the ownership lives out here and I believe some of the techs do, too. Great company, great people. edited to remove contact information of non-commerce member business.
  3. Well look ... Joined:25-June 09 ... he's such a newb. That's what you get from newbs.
  4. No worries. Not trying to be argumentative ... I just like facts and accuracies and such. No doubt "they" are slow in getting the reality of Lyme in GA. It's much more common than so many realize.
  5. When did that change? Both of mine were 4.
  6. From your initial post: "...Because Lyme Disease "doesn't exist" in Georgia. Because, according to the CDC and the Infectious Disease Society of America, chonic Lyme doesn't exist..." That is what I addressed. CDC absolutely does say that it exists here and with regard to chronic Lyme: "...Approximately 10 to 20% of patients treated for Lyme disease with a recommended 2–4 week course of antibiotics will have lingering symptoms of fatigue, pain, or joint and muscle aches. In some cases, these can last for more than 6 months. Although often called "chronic Lyme disease," this condition is properly known as "Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome" (PTLDS). The exact cause of PTLDS is not yet known. Most medical experts believe that the lingering symptoms are the result of residual damage to tissues and the immune system that occurred during the infection. Similar complications and "auto–immune" responses are known to occur following other infections, including Campylobacter (Guillain-Barre syndrome), Chlamydia (Reiter's syndrome), and Strep throat (rheumatic heart disease). In contrast, some health care providers tell patients that these symptoms reflect persistent infection with Borrelia burgdorferi. Recent animal studies have given rise to questions that require further research, and clinical studies to determine the cause of PTLDS in humans are ongoing..." So your initial post is misleading, at best. It's fine for the author to disagree with a lot of what the CDC is saying about the disease )they've been wrong about plenty before and there is still so much about Lyme that is unknown) but the author loses ground with false statements like those I responded to.
  7. He should get his schedule, a map, and a chance to walk to each class and meet each teacher.

    OMG !

    This is another school supplies list, isn't it?
  9. Maybe if we all whine about it enough on an internet forum it will fix it.
  10. And so many of them really don't get it ... they put too much faith in the blot test and the target rash.
  11. CDC does recognize "chronic" Lyme. They just tend to refer to it by its technically correct name, Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome. http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/postLDS/index.html And the CDC does recognize confirmed cases of Lyme in the state of Georgia. http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/resources/ReportedCasesofLymeDisease_2011.pdf
