Red Cross and so called Chronic Lyme.
If Chronic Lyme is officially a myth then what does Red Cross consider as  Chronic Lyme disease? I ask it cause Red Cross won't accept person suffering Chronic Lyme as a blood donor. How can Red Cross PROVE that someone suffers it when this disease is not scientifically proven?

What an excellent question --

That position states perfectly the difficulty we Lyme patients face.

Medical orthodoxy will crumble in the face of reality.  The only question is when.

BTW, there in Estonia Chronic Lyme is not accepted disease and everyone who is treated of this disease, even when IgG is still higher, can donate a blood.

if you had Bartonella or babesiosis you cannot donate  B ut they never ask you that.  I am o pos, a universal donor, and they keep calling me asking me to donate and I tell them of my condition.  Then they call later again.    I used to give double red and whole blood at least 3 times a year.
