Hi, I’m Jodie
and I am a carer of a Chronic Lyme disease sufferer.
Lyme disease on the 7 September 2008 after being bitten by multiple parasites, while
sleeping in a communal depot bed in North Sydney, which as we now know is the Lyme
capital of NSW.
At the time Brett
thought it was just a horrible bed bug experience and that a thorough shower
upon his return home would be the end of it. Little did he/we know that this
was the beginning of the end of life as he/we knew it.
within days, he realised there were copious amount of Pigeons and Indian Mynor
nesting and taking refuge on the balconies etc surrounding the room he was
initial skin symptoms, such as the spread EM, Butterfly and ACA Borrelia/Lyme
rashes were misdiagnosed as Scabies, Eczema, Grover’s disease and DOP. We now
know that if Brett had have been diagnosed and treated correct and adequately
at this stage he would unlikely be chronically ill now.
As time went on he got stabbing headaches, aches
and pains, ongoing eye and ear infections and more, as the infection
disseminated deeper and networked through his blood to his nerves, tissues,
organs, etc, he went from being a very active, healthy fit and alert 47 year
To a man who
could not get out of bed for up to 22 hours a day and could not walk further
than 10mtrs without stopping to rest in agony. His left leg atrophied to half
as thin as his right one and he was collapsing, having his legs go to jelly and
losing consciousness for brief periods, etc.
diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis,
Gout, Bursitis, suspected terminal cancer, Delusional and even as not being
hugged enough by his father as a child.
As Brett was
deteriorating in front of my eyes showing obvious waste and degeneration and I
was witness to the negligentand
ruthless treatment and diagnoses being flippantly handed out by numerous
Medical persons I took him to in Australia for help.
It become obvious that Brett was going to be
left for dead if we did not take his wellbeing into our own hands, so we began
the journey of looking logically into the sequence of events that had led to Brett’s
decline, including why he got so sick after being bitten by parasites, that we
knew without a doubt, had come from birds.
To cut a long
story short, it wasn’t that hard to get answers, it is all very well
documented, double blind and peer reviewed studies, Entomology, Scientific, Medical,
Ornithological studies done all around the world (other than from Australia of
course) that clearly demonstrate the
and Ground Foraging birds are competent reservoirs and hosts of Borrelia and
co-infections/Lyme disease and that now days, due to culling of Deer,
deforestation, changes in the environment, lab experiments, many of these birds
are carrying this disease and migration and stress activates it in these birds and
these birds transport trillions of infected ticks, mites, lice and fleas each
year from continent to continent, country to country suburb to suburb, bush to
backyard, etc, etc.
We had our
answer, but back then we did not know that this was just the beginning of the
most indescribably unforgivable experience one could ever be put through. As
nothing could have prepared us for the nastiness and barbaric denial that we
were about to experience purely for attempting to present Brett’s true cause
and core of his suffering/condition to the mainstream medics here in Australia.
very accommodating to these birds and their migratory flight paths, as per
below links, so anybody with this information, which isn’t hard to come
by,would have to be either a total
moron or a genocidal maniac to maintain and perpetuate the deadly ludicrous
myth, suggesting that Lyme is either not here or is rare in Australia.
by/from those who are suppose to be staying abreast of this to keep our nations
safe, is no excuse.
responsible for the well being and protection of this country were apt and conscientious
enough to do their jobs and listen to the people who are suffering Lyme disease
and who contracted it here in Australia, instead of relying on the one flawed
study that has been done here two decades ago.
at least half dozen other competently handled successful Australian studies,
demonstrating how Lyme disease is obviously here in Australia and has been for
a long time.
be so much less unnecessary pain, suffering and premature death here in
Australia and our children would not be being robbed of a healthy, happy
childhood, while being diagnosed with numerous fancy named “unknown caused”
illnesses, “on the rise” for no apparent reason.
Anybody still referring to this one flawed
study and not acknowledging the other ones, must be investigated and asked why
they would want to shroud the evidence of Lyme disease in Australia.
It seems as
if those who could have helped to prevent the unbridled spread of this disease
here in Australia soon after the flawed study was exposed, were too ignorant
and nonchalant in the early days, just after this, but now are hell bent on
covering their negligence and incompetence by pretending there has only been
one study done.
encouraged me to write a song I hope will help people realise how illogical it
is to believe that so many of them are suffering multiple illnesses that are
suppose to have no explanation, reason, cause or core, most “no known
cause/idiopathic conditions” actually have a known cause but here in Australia
it is ignored and denied.
