Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

Hi Duchess.

Sorry you're but glad you found this board. The folks here are great. Feel free to ask any question or just complain. We're great listeners.

Lyme affects us differently in physical ways, but we all experience the isolation, the depression, the cost, the fatigue, the feeling that we're not part of society anymore.

I got sick about 2 years ago.

I had an itchy, oval shaped rash on my right shin; none on my left. I thought it might be dry skin and I ignored it. Then my knees started to hurt and I thought, oh well, I must be getting olde and I ignored that too.

But then I lost my sense of balance, my face started to get numb, my vision got messed up and all sorts of other weird things.

I went to so many doctors and I too was scanned and probed and prodded. One doctor I saw me that I had dementia! :)

I was lucky enough to have a great LLMD not too far from me. I have been on treatment for 17 months and I just started feeling better.

The past year of doing nothing but sitting on my couch was horrid. I suffered every day. I look fine on the outside though, so its nearly impossible to get sympathy from family and friends.

My family avoids me now and most of my friends have disappeared.

On this board I have found new friends. The folks here understand exactly how I feel. They don't pass judgement on my messy house or if I don't shower every day.

Hang in there. I think its great that you have a doctor that is open minded. I hope you do use Igenex to test your blood for Lyme. You may also want to test for co-infections.

Peace and health to you.
