Hi Again Kate,
I agree with Sherrine, if you think you might have contracted Lyme and have been in a high tick area, get tested. However.. Deer Ticks are the ones that carry Lyme Disease and they are extremely small. When they're fully engorged with blood they're only a little bigger than a pin-head. But I always recommend to our members, if you have the slightest incling (SP) that you might have Lyme, get tested. One of our fibro family members named Rich is going through Lyme right now and he's been pretty sick. We adopted him.. because he has so many symptoms that are similar to FMS and we all really care about him. Anyway, I just saw your post and had to answer.
Hi Katie and Welcome!
What a little miracle your daughter is. And what a strong mother she has! You have been through much. Yes, you have come to the right place for support- I don't think you can find a better group. Like you said you can come here and complain, be happy, sad, in between, tired, in pain, laugh, you name it and everyone understands.
Nice to meet you and have a very nice Easter-
Hi Kate & welcome. You have been through alot & I am glad you have found us. It is so nice to have this place to come to when everyone else in our lives is saying: go to work & it can't be that bad. It is a wonderful thing to be able to stay at home with your daughter. You have been through so much, you need some loving attention yourself but it is a blessing for your daughter to have you for her mother. You will always understand & will be her champion. My daughter has had Fibro her whole life due to extenuating circumstances that led to 13 surgeries. Her son, Deylan was born with a major heart problem & was on oxygen until he was 2-1/2 years old & his lungs were able to function on their own. It was such a milestone & we were all so happy that he had reached it. He is doing very well now. I hope your daughters' lungs strengthen as well. I have seen the that the human body can come back from what looks like certain death to a happy healthy life. Your daughter is a fighter & it sure looks like she has what it takes to make a good recovery.
Please feel free to come here often & read & post & ask questions. This is an amazing place of emotional recovery. A place of caring, understanding, knowledge & laughs. There will always be those here who have dealt with exactly what you are dealing with & can help you through it & if we haven't dealt with it, we can support you through it. Take care.
What is your daughters name? I hope she stays on the road to recovery. Many soft & gentle hugs, Denise
