Last Half Year: Five Victims of Sickness of Lyme committed Suicide

10 April 2014
The Dutch Association of Sickness of Lyme Patients (NVLP) confirms that five patients of the Sickness have committed suicide in the past half year due to the unbearable suffering. In the Netherlands often there is no perspective for proper treatment. Many patients go at their own expense abroad, but not everybody has the funds.  NVLP Board member Miranka Mud says that suicides often result from faulty diagnoses many years ago. Therefore treatment started too late.
