Many people with persistent Lyme symptoms try reason and information to explain the bizarre politics, policies, misdiagnose and mistreatment of this controversial disease to their friends and family. But what if the situation is so absurd that it defies logic? Could satire do the trick better? An attempt.

Lyme is the most scary MUS

The Dutch medical Journal "Medical Contact" has recently been publishing a number of columns about Lyme Disease, written by doctors. This journal is the main source of information for Dutch GP's. Here you can read the text of the column published on July 25, 2016, written by neurologist Emile Keuters.

TO: Editors of the Arts & Patient magazine (Medisch Contact)

Dear Editors:  I am writing to express a concern about the article you recently published, written by Professor Jan Keppel Hesselink. The article was a position paper about how patients and the lay-public have exaggerated concerns or misrepresented the seriousness of Lyme disease and modern vaccines.

Luc Bonneux's column in Medical Contact was followed by an open letter written by Inge van Ulden, MsC. She is a scientist, Lyme author and has been suffering from chronic Lyme during the last eight years. 

"A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it." Max Planck

This column was published in the Dutch A-ranking Medical Journal called 'Medical Contact'. Its author is a self proclaimed epidemiologist and apparently also a 'Lyme expert’. This column provoked an open letter from a scientifically trained Dutch Lyme author called Inge van Ulden, who neatly spelled out why his unfounded opinions are very harmful for ill people. She also found out that the same ‘expert epidemiologist’ is actually trained as a biologist.
