[COLOR="Purple"][B]I forgot to answer couple of your questions...:rolleyes:

Getting a picc line I think is between you and your doctor...I was on orals for a couple of years..and did not know about the picc line...then I heard about picc lines and talked to my doctor and we tried it for about a year...

Each day you give yourself a dose of antibiotics through the tube. Once a week the way it worked for me is a In Home Health Nurse that was assigned to my case came out and took my vitals and checked the insertion sight and changed the dressing...

I myself do not see any reason NOT to take vitamins...I have always been encouraged to take vitamins...to me when you are this ill and can't hold down your food or can't fix proper meals for yourself..have nooooo appetiate...and are putting alot of med's in your system..a body is going to be in need of extra help...

Sweetie I have no idea on what to tell you about the pain...NOTHING EVER WORKED FOR ME!
I think with proper treatment and as the treatment helps you the pain will lessen....
I know it has for me..I no longer have to take pain med's. And actually I have no idea if it was even worth taking them...But we are all different so you just need to keep trying to find what works best for you...

Right now I am having a bad day. Not physical pain but with these bacterias, virus's microbacteriums that I have imbedded between my scalp and skull.. That shut down the right side of my head and mess with the nerves on the right side of my body...
I can honestly say I am better than I use to be..and today is a cry baby day..so I guess sweetie as you have read post after post from all over the world...don't think there really is an easy way to get through all of this..but it is like a fight the whole way...so you either just live with the way you are and let these bacterias continue to invade or you have to stay as strong as you can and fight to survive...and from reading your post this is what you are doing...:)

If I remember correctly you want to get into the medical field...I am sure you going through what you are ..you are going to be able to lend a shoulder and ear to many others through out your life...

I know you still live at home and I know you are having a though time getting people to listen...you have made good progress getting them to listen to you enough to get you to a infectious disease doctor...As you know your battle isn't finshed...look what happend to Michael going to one of those docs...and the same thing happened to many of us here...

Like I have said to you before, I can tell you are very intelligent and want answers...You TRULY NEED TO DO YOUR RESEARCH ON LYME....so you can take your knowledge into the doctor...and beings you are young you are going to have to really convince this person...remember to write down your daily pains and hurts and fevers and sleep patterns...not eatting ect...a daily journal so when you get there you won't go blank.

did you talk to your teacher?? If so what happened?

If I remember correctly you live in a real HIGH Lyme area also...so you have a chance going to this doc to make your case...

I wish we could all be there to help you!

Did you try to find some e-mail addresses for Lyme doc's?

ARe there any in your area?? If there are maybe write a letter and take it to the front offcie lady and ask her to give it to the doctor...I don't know Victoria...I guess let's just PRAY THAT this I.D doctor will help you!!! And get you on some med's.

You'll get through this...I am sure of it...

Hugs to you! [/B][/COLOR]
