Miranda Turley started this petition to UK Parliament

I was diagnosed after 5 years of suffering with Morgellons Disease which is a chronic form of Lyme Disease. I was bitten by a Tick in 2011 in Preston, Lancashire, UK. But didn’t seek medical attention as I didn’t know the risks to my health. Lyme/Morgellons Disease is a new pandemic. A public health warning needs to be issued on the dangers of a tick bite. Because if you seek medical treatment straight away you can be cured. I have applied for PIP many times and been refused I am unable to work and I’m living on the bread line. I am seriously unwell like millions of other people with this disease. The government don’t want to acknowledge it because it will cost a fortune to fund research, treatment and a possible cure? It is highly immoral to leave millions of us to suffer in silence. With a disease that you will never understand unless you have it yourself. It’s as severe as Cancer and HIV. Soldiers are immunised against Lyme Disease and have to check themselves for Ticks when they have been out in the field. Yet us the general public are ignored and dismissed as delusional. The impact this Disease has not only on ourself but are loved ones is unbearable. Stress makes us more unwell it heightens our symptoms dramatically. Many of us seek private treatment but many more of us have not got the funds to do so. The nhs needs to be educated a lot more on the disease. The current government guidelines for Lyme Disease are incorrect. This is one hardcore disease. A parasite along with co Organisms (Bacteria) uses our body’s as its host. It splices through every cell In the body and changes our own dna so it can avoid being detected by our immune systems. It is in every organ of our body’s and also the blood and skin. I had no hair or eyelashes for over five years. We feel it waving through our body’s like we are on a boat. We get muscle spasms, pins and needles, numbness. Also every joint aches and almost all of us develop arthritis I have it in my knees.
