Lyme Disease Message Board

Lyme Disease Board Index

[COLOR="Purple"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Hi Laurie,

Are you seeing a true Lyme Doctor? Or just your g.p.?

The experts say that one should take antibiotics for think it was 3 or 4 months after all symptoms go away. And I have heard that once you get these bacterias in your system you will never be rid of them completly. They can go into remission, but never truly gone for good.

I am assuming I was sick for 20 years before finding a doctor that treated me. He said that I Looked liked something the cat drug in.
He treated me for 3 years, including a couple of picc lines. He then retired and I found my current Dr. whom specializes in bacterias/viruses.

Like majority of people once you get ill, it is like trying to treat a Pandora's box.

So 10 years of proper treatment for these critters that I have. (so far)

I have some damage to my thinking, I have to be careful not to get stressed. And have to be careful not to over do. (That is where I am today)

I take a handful of supplements before I eat. And another handful of supplements after I eat.
I am super thankful that I have this current Dr. on my side. Cause I would not have made it without him.

I had enlarged heart, enlarged bowels, got to the point where I couldn't walk or use my arms. Major pain all through out my body and knife stabbing pains in my head.
Delusional, memory problems, hallucinations and swelling between my scalp and skull. Neck, back, wrists problems. Throid problems. Throwing up. Sweats, couldn't breath....
You name it I had it...ugh!

The one doctor that first treated me didn't go on test I had done for Lyme. He listened and went on my symptoms. Cause the test just are not accurate.

You might try getting some epsom salts and hydrogen peroxide and soak in the tub for atleast 20 min. a day or as often as you can. It supposedly helps draw out the toxins. And helps put oxygen into your body. If you don't have a tub or just can not do that...try just soaking your feet. Think it is 2 cups of Epsom Salts and a 64 ounce bottle of Hydrogen peroxide.

It is very hard on any one that has a chronin illness, trying to get the family/ friends to understand. Trust me...they won't ever get it unless they go through it. I lost all my friends at the time I was soooo sick and my family backed off from me. I lost a job, a husband, house, baby...
It is one crazy world while your going through it trying to get better and trying to understand the why's no one gets it.

My world collapsed as I knew it. BUT I then found a man whom I am still with that basically took me in. We are still together. And trust me he didn't understand always what I was going through. But he is still here:) 9 years later.

I have a new life now. And I am thankful for what I have.

I did not know about these boards when I was super sick. So find all the support you can. Read and learn everything you can about Lyme and other bacterias and viruses. Don't give up on yourself. Cause no one else is going to help you to get back on your feet.
Don't mean that to sound depressing but it is true.

Are you taking any supplements to help build your body back up?

We are all here to help. You have any questions ask away.
