I have just read an article on the Telegraph's website: Deadly Lyme disease on increase
While the topic is not in any way reassuring, the article itself is the most factual, accurate article I have read on Lyme in the mainstream British media. The comments under the article suggest there is a need for more, similar articles which share information about Lyme disease in the UK.
When I first got ill and had no idea what was wrong with me I searched online through lots of information and do not remember coming across Lyme and certainly didn't consider it as a possibility. (If I did come across it, I probably discounted it on the basis that I didn't have the bullseye rash, often wrongly reported as a necessary symptom for diagnosis.) I really do think that I would come across a lot more information on Lyme disease now than I did six years ago.
However, I would really like to see more articles like this one but I really want to share this article and hope many other people do too.
