my 8 yr old child suffers from type 1 diabetes and Lyme disease. Lyme disease has caused far greater disability than her 24/7 infusions of insulin. I'm currently awaiting test results for Lyme as I've been bitten repeatedly while living in Los Altos Hills, CA. I'm curious about the current political arena Lyme has in our society. Hopefully your research will help define and discover more important aspects of this horrid disease.
