marleen mulder started this petition to Senator Charles E. Schumer and

Lyme disease is an epidemic in the US larger than aids and can be controlled by early detection , so I propose that all comprehensive blood tests include a comprehensive Lyme test

Early detection of this disease will safe lives and saves patients lots of suffering and money , and will cut millions of costs for all insurance companies , Medicare and emergency rooms, because of all the confusing symptoms associated with the infection leading to two types of chronic Lyme disease when not timely detected and treated  : 1 the infection has not been gone from he body , because not treated  and even after treatment ; 2 the infection has gone from the body but due to late detection the side affects are still there and hard to battle , like heart disease, arthritis , nervous system damage, etc

I was most likely infected in May 2008 or before according to expert medical examination , treatment and comprehensive tests and not diagnosed until March 2011

I still battle daily with nerve damage, arthritis symptoms , fatigue and concentration relapses, in spite of excellent medical treatments and following advise as what to eat , drink and take as current medications and supplements and which exersizes suit my physical build and potential

I now know that without help from friends , family and eventually finding an expert medical team , I would not be alive today , because always having been strong and healthy , both phyically and  mentally , I had no idea how serious my condition was even after being diagnosed

Out of  gratitude  to those who helped me save  my Life I feel obligated to bring this to the fore ground  of  National and International health  prevention and epidemic discussions towards new legislation to add these tests to regular screenings

Everyone is different and there are great articles on line articulating the nature of and many good updates to helpful treatments supporting Lyme afflicted people 

But the bottom line is really  early Detection!

Most of my personal medical support like so many others has come from therapies , etc I had to pay for out of pocket , while insured ......

Please support my petition to inspire health providers to ask for , accept, recommend and take seriously including updated Lyme tests in regular screenings to stop this epidemic through the common sense of early detection.

Thank you ! 

With warmest regards  

and appreciation to all who have supported me and all of you reading this and all you do to upgrade our health system and hence enjoyment of life as a human right for all  of us human beings occupying this beautiful Earth at this time and all evolving future generations to come
