It can be hard to hear your mum thinks the Earth is flat. But saving a loved one from conspiracy theories is possible
"That's one of the things that I feel so shocked by now — that anything that has a collective purpose is a conspiracy … it's part of us being controlled."

Facebook bans QAnon across its platforms
The change is a significant escalation over its previous actions targeting QAnon and one of the broadest rules the social media giant has put in place in its history.

Does this obsession with off the wall conspiracy theories reflect the quality of American public education?

Sorry to take so long getting back to this, busy weekend.

Yes, I think I'm right all the time. So does everybody. But when I argue about something I try to make sure I actually am, especially on topics like this.

If you claim that "The bigger conspiracy is why the CDC denies that chronic infection from Lyme disease, which is estimated to occur with 20%-30% of those infected, exists" Then a link to the CDC acknowledging that chronic Lyme disease (or at least chronic Lyme disease symptoms) exist is a reasonable response. An activist community arguing for a disease mechanism isn't terribly convincing, especially with so many spectacular fails in recent memory. Yes, people are suffering, maybe people you know and love, maybe even you. That doesn't give you better insight into the causes than a doctor who has spent a career studying the disease and its mechanisms.

And yes, I know someone suffering from chronic Lyme. A good friend of mine went ten years with an undiagnosed (and, of course, untreated) case of Lyme. He eventually took a year-long course of intravenous antibiotics from the Mayo clinic—he had so many IVs they surgically implanted a shunt into his arm to avoid irritating the injection site. It didn't kill him but it made him very very sick. He likened it to chemo. Wasn't cheap either.

He's much better now, and I attributed that to the treatment until I read the CDC pages on PTLDS. It sounds like he might have put himself thru all that for nothing.
 

No, I don't think I am right all the time.  By way of example, let me correct my mistake in the above quote.  The bigger problem is why the CDC denies that chronic infection from Lyme disease COULD exist.    The jury is still out...there is no conclusion to draw as to why some patients continue to suffer.  

My own insight is based mostly on those doctors who continue to provide research (see prior links) and treat those patients.  

I'm surprised your friend received such aggressive treatment from Mayo; it's quite unusual and there would have had to be clear evidence the bacteria was found in spinal fluid and had crossed the blood brain barrier.
