Everything is under reported in the Country of lairs. Do we expect anything more? We have a Community Organizer in the White House. Everything is fine...The Government wouldn't LIE to the people. Never have ... Never will.

I have had valley fever for 40 yrs. I had to diagnose it myself and beg a doctor to test for it. It has eaten it's way around my face, destroyed my sinuses, and made me deaf in one ear. My mother died of disseminated valley fever after living in the Las Cruces area for a long time.She was misdiagnosed with cancer. Does anyone know of a doctor in the Albuquerque area? I would sure appreciate it.
