Did you read the log list of symptoms on this forum, and you have everyone of them and more?
Do you keep going to tons of Dr.s and they cannot find anything wrong with you?
Were you "lucky" enough to find a tick and get the bulls eye?
Mostly likely you never saw the tick, being the size and color of sugar, or it was a flea, or a moscoto. Or even a lover.
If you send your blood work to quest, you will come back negative.
If you send your blood work to IGENEX, which is going to cost you out of your own pocket. You are in for a rude awakening...but at least you will have your answers.
No you are not losing your mind. No you are not person that is pretending to be sick...ah, that one makes me mad.
If you are at the point that you are having thoughts of hurting yourself, and your Dr.s....but who first...
When most who have been down this road are out of a lot of money and are still sick.
I suggest newbies to spend your money very wisely. Buy all the books on this forum and educate yourself. And do it asap. Stop asking all the wrong people, read books written by brilliant people out there who's entire families and communities hove gotten lyme and so many co -infections that I cannot even spell.
Some things work for some people.
The most important thing is to try to stay positive, to get your sense of humor. Because you had better to learn to laugh. Not that any of this is funny...but it is better and safer than shooting people...lol
And have faith. Alot of these books may make you feel hopeless. But there is hope. If there is a cure for maleria and cancer and all of these others.
Then there is a cure for this stupid bug bite. It will be affordable to all of us. It is siting right in front of our noses and we have to find it.
Hope, prayer, laughing at yourself...and others...lol. and reading..and trying and most importantly. Find someone who is worse off that you. And help them. Support them. It helps to help others more than anything. My mother said to me..how can you talk to all of these suicidal people??? Well....it comforts me to know that I am not alone. And that I am not losing my mind. And it makes me feel good to try to help someone who cannot walk that day, to tell them that they are going to get better...or to let them vent.
So reach out to each other....and go forward. But educate yourself first!
And if you want someone to cheer you up..and make you laugh I have time for you! I am here for you. yes I have time to listen to you ***** and moan and yes. I can understand how maddening all of this is! I am trying to find the answers. I am not going to give up this till I find a cure that is affordable for everyone and a darn method of keeping us from getting this again when we walk to the mail box!
You can contact me directly. I stand behind it.
