YES--You heard it all right, it was no dream! I saw it and I was so mad! He totally made a big joke of lyme disease and saying that only 1 in 200 people get it and that its the most overdiagnosed disease--he had no clue what he was talking about. I stayed up, too, thinking this is great, someone on tv talking about lyme disease, I was excited. Then, I was SO bummed and mad, I couldn't get to sleep for a while either! I emailed the show a while ago--you should too--and I told them what I thought about the whole 'fake' tick-ing timebomb book. I was thinking, wow, another book I need to get and read. I told him it wasn't a joking matter and would they joke about ALS, AIDS, or some other disease which CAN take peoples lives? (although he probably would!) I told them that lyme disease DOES kill and that their information was so wrong. I told him in my email that if he ever got it, or his son, Harry, that he wouldn't think it was a laughing matter. I was so disappointed in DAve! And I love his show and he is funny but that wasn't a joking matter to us lymies. I would love to get an email back from the show. If enough people write in to them maybe it would help. Surely, they rec'd alot of emails about last nights show? Anyways, I totally understand how you felt, grrrrrrrr!
I haven't been on this website for a while, been so busy with work, but I logged on to see if anyone was talking about last night's show and sure enough, yours was on top! I'm glad someone else besides me saw it and disapproved. Write the show lymegirl!!!
