Letters for Lyme 2011 Responses

I was wondering if anyone else got any responses worth talking about?

Letters for Lyme 2011 in my opinion was a successful campaign. Many people joined in the movement. It felt great to be part of something so much larger than myself. Seeing all of us united is very indicative of the things to come, of the things we can accomplish together.

I sent out a total of around 70 snail mail letters not including the 50 plus emails.

I received two letters in the regular mail and a few emails back. At least the two snail mail letters showed that whoever received the letter actually read it, or most of it.

The replies were slightly intelligent. They cited Lyme Disease, explained the research being done and who is doing what. Blah Blah, agreed with the IDSA guidelines and then and directed me to contact the CDC. The old game of pass the buck. However, it was nice to get some sort of response. In spite of the fact that I only received few responses it felt like a small victory. The more people that hear our stories and our voices, the more awareness we spread and that is the point, right?
