    So sad for all the suffering this terrible decision will cause Australians.

    Gotta love this logic:

    If lyme doesn't exist then why do they need an infections disease specialist? And no meds that cause herxing? what about for other diseases.

    I'm scratching my head on this one.

    This happened to my CFS doc in the mid-90s. He was instructed to never treat CFS again. So far as I know that ruling still holds.

    This is another reason to be cautious about posting on open forums about the particulars of treatments prescribed by a given doctor, when it involves politically contentious diagnoses and treatments like those for Lyme disease. (Of course the political contentiousness varies from country to country.)

    These doctors are taking a risk by trying to treat us and we can help protect them by not making their approach easily "google searchable" to those factions who want to shut them down.

    It just boggles my mind that doctors are prevented from treating patients. I don't get it.

    Lyme is bad and hard enough to get a diagnosis for anyway, (you need the "right" sorts of connections with the "right" sort of folk to get even looked at for Lyme) without this.
    Words fail me.

    Wow this is beyond messed up.. I feel for my fellow Aussies, Lyme can be deadly if left untreated, I even potentially have myocarditis which is very fatal and I AM treating it.. I don't and will not ever understand governing logic and its inherent fallacies. The same is happening in the U.S. and other countries as well though. If anyone watches Under Our Skin it shows this in the movie. There is a lot of doctors here that have been shutdown from malpractice lawsuits and the like.

    we all know the state of play here in the UK too. Witchhunts of all doctors involved in treating ME patients. And of course if the registration is suspended/re-instated always the clause for those treating on the NHS is never to treat ME again - wonder why..............

    When there is a world-wide cover-up over diseases that appear to affect only those with certain genetic features, you really do wonder if there is a big plan somewhere, to cull a certain proportion of the human race.

    Medicine hasn't really done a lot for us as a species.

    Babies that should have died at birth now survive, drugs and other procedures can give us greater number of years - but all that does, is mean there is a large population of elderly folk needing cared for.

    We just don't die in the sorts of numbers needed any more - and "poor" sets of genes, which would have died out when babies died at birth, now get passed on.

    Other people are now our major predators, (besides disease).

    course there's a cover up

    1) to save the health insurance corporations money, and poltiicans and bureacrats are corrupt traitors eager to sell out to them
    think it was bloody coincidence there was a Department of Work & Pension officer at my disability tribunal hearing, hm?
    Can't have working class M.E. patients winning disability awards unless they are bedbound and sometimes not even then, would set a bad precedent! $$$....

    2) to quiet the fact that we're seeing vast increases in autoimmune and cancer cases, caused by our lunatic over and misuse of deadly chemicals and nuclear materials

    3) Because the USA and UK were loonies who screwed around with non-lethal biological weapons, and of course, many "escaped", and are desperate to keep that quiet

    hey the Russians' weapons were straight up lethal which was hard to keep their catastrophes quiet (terrible, STUPID smallpox and anthrax accidents that killed many people), and also shows the complete BULLSHIT lies about the West's so called "humane warfare" outlook.
    death by famine due to crop blights, a life time wasting away by Lyme and other engineered diseases, crippled for life by bullets designed to cripple more often than kill etc and that's "humane"? bollocks it is!
    we are NOT the "good guys", no one is, power and money worships only one god and it ain't a nice one.

    4) The Medical Establishment can never ever let it be known that they are not the true High priests of the God of health!
    otherwise we will doubt them, won't fall for their arrogance and lies and drug selling *racket*, and worst of all, demand the be put on trial for their crimes.

    @Sushi thank you, that sounds like a fairly positive step as individual's we could all accomplish

    'Jason Mullen' in the FB responses suggested 'we should all picket one of there offices' - AHPRA

    -That comment reminds me of what we saw in the early days of HIV

    @peggy-sue brings up an interesting concept, which causes me to really question our humanity


    **Reminds me I need to start another thread!
