I have been doing well since my long stint at envita, only to return to an x who has decided to take my daugher away from me.
Literally. He put her in a mental ward and now has her at his rancch in aspen and I cannot even get on the phone.
I guess that I am going to be in the news soon fighting him to be able to treat her for her lyme. Never a dull moment.
I have been developing servere chest pain and I am having trouble breathing. Like something is sitting on my chest.
Going in and out of police stations and lawyers offices is very stressful. And so...her I go.
How do deal with this sort of stress....and after all that I have been through. But I am grateful to be so much better. But I do need to be able to breath during my new battle.
Alll of her blood work came back positive from igenex and even stony broke. But as you all know...if the cdc says that she does not have enough lyme...then surely it is not lyme.
I guess god has decided that I am going to be the first to sue a x to be able to get my daughter alterantive treatment. And to not let him lock her away for her depression and OCD and anxiety and so on.......
Any suggestions on how to get rid of this pain in my chest so that I can kick his ass in court?

My whole family got very sick back in 2002 while spending our summer in Martha's Vineyard. We found tiny ticks all over us.  My symptoms were too many to list.
But the worst of them was heart problems, depression, pain in evey joint , vertigo, dementia, fever, anxiety, migrains, bad night sweats, nightmares, insomnia, awful fatique, memory loss. And then unable to finish a sentence, drive, cook, and care for children.
Took me till 2009 to get treatment that worked. I tried everything else.
Alternative medicine worked for me.
My 6 year old developed insomia, moods swings, cogintive problems, pain in joints, and depression and anixiety and OCD.
My 11 month old developed severe arthritis and nausea, and migrains and fatigue.
Lyme is a battle. I am now trying to get my children the same treatment that I received at Envita.

It sounds like an anxiety attack, but if it continues please get to the hospital. Have you had anxiety attacks before? What you have gone and are going through nowis enoughto give anyone an anxiety attack! I'll be praying for you!

I have had alot of panic attacks in the past...but they were different. This is just a heavy weight on me.
But I am sure that you are right.
We are going to court to be able to have my daughter treated. And since he is worth about 3 billion...I am scared and he has threatened me.
So I guess that some anxiety would be normal...lol
I guess this is meant to be. A big pubic battle over lyme and all of the BS that surrounds it.
Ha...you know being sick with lyme was much worse than this...is pales....
Only someone with lyme whol cannot get to the grocery store can understand this.
My friends are shocked..but I am not really. I am going to get into my DR.s a find some drug that will ease this pain...and maybe getting into a gym, now that I can, to work off the stress would be good.
Other than that.....I feel fine.
I am trying to look for the peaks though this valley and know that this fight will help alot of people.
And when I am done with him...I will be able to help more people out there too.

How long has it been feeling like this? My mom sent me something recently about female heart attacks feeling differently than men's and are more subtle. We ignore them and tend to die from them. Not to scare you and give you more anxiety, but be cautious!

I think you should go to a doctor right away to be on the safe side. I feel so badly for you. Is it your 12 year old daughter or your 5 year old? You will be in my thoughts and prayers. You are such a strong person, you can get through this, but you sure have had your share of tough times to deal with. It could also be depression as well as anxiety - the feeling like a weight is on you. It can really take you down physically as well as mentally and emotionally.

By the way, I have a book, "best lawyers in America" if you need a good reference. You can email me or you can even order a copy online from Amazon.com. The current books are about $900 but you can get an older copy from 2005 or so for about $25 and the good attorneys stay good attorneys. I have used this book to locate the best attorney to fight a millionaire but not a billionaire.

Thank you so much...I need the prayers the most.
He is not god..and does not believe in him either...
But I will have him on my side.
It is my 13 year old that is really sick, and he is figthing me on her treatment, and has made some very bad choices without my consent of treatment. Like a mental ward and tons of pills. And she got much much worse.
He belongs in a mental ward.
I have some great lawyers who have dealt with him alot in the past and know his game well. And he has done this sort of things with three other women too.
Cannot believe that it has come to this, but I have tried so hard to reason...cry and pleaded and over 500 e-mails...but now....taking her away while she is so depressed and ill....enough is enough,
No doubt he is the elephant sitting on my chest now.
I am going to get into my Dr.s tomorrow and see if they cannot get rid of the pressure on my chest, because I am not going to get off of his back any time soon.
Funny thing is that this is going to be a very big and public case....and the whole thing that started it...was lyme treatment.
So If I focus on the good that will come out of this for others....and rock the boat in the media...then so be it. Here we go.
Guess that this was all meant to be. I am not going to let him bulldose me over and let my daughter suffer.
What a mess...lol

Hi Martha,

I am sorry for your family's suffering. I pray your misery will be short lived. Since I know you are willing to do alternative syle treatments, there is a technique called "EFT" or emotional freedom technique. You can find info about it online. There are practitioners that can teach you the method also. It will help release some of the stress you have. I have an aquaintence that found the technique useful for herself and her daughter's health, so much so that they are both becoming practitioners. The technique is also referred to as "tapping". You can learn to tap yourself and then do not need to go to any practitioner. I plan to learn it myself. Our naturopath uses a form of it in his practice.

Best wishes. bablymers mom

Oh Martha this causes me anxiety reading what you are going through! And they wonder why people k*** their spouses. It is that frustrating especially when the baby is involved. Oh god. Well she is just going to cut him out of her life after this crap. He sounds like a real piece of work. Narcissistic man harming his own to satisfy his pride.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

Martha,

It is most likely stress since you are going through so much but still be careful. Like Turquoise said, women have different symtoms with heart problems and sometimes that can be anxiety. You should still let your doctor know what's going on.

I hope it gets better for you soon hun.

Dear Marie,

I am sorry to read this. So sorry that your husband has chosen this way.
I have information for you to help re: mothers, children, Lyme, the law.
Send me a note, if you'd like the info reference.

The stress must be overwhelming to your immune system; of course anxiety is going to wreak havoc; but I would also keep watch for Babesia symptoms. I am praying for the most gentle approach to bring this under control for you, so that you are able to take care of what is needed to rescue your daughter.

Mostly, I am praying for your daughter. My heart goes out to you and to her - I know so many other moms here are very troubled to see yet another family being torn apart by this disease.

I know that you are strong - and able. But, I know it is horrific to confront and deal with.
Hold on and stay the course you are being led in; I pray you win. Regardless, you are going to be her hero. She will know that her Mom is fighting for her.

Take care.

Hopefully it is anxiety and you can treat it. But "an elephant sitting on my chest" is a classic sign of a heart attack. Please seek help for this.

My grandma died of a heart attack and said it felt like an elephant was sitting on her chest. Those were her exact words. She did a quad bypass and lived 20 years later, but had another, and died. She ate like a bird, exercised, did everything right, her whole life. It's just in our genes. My mom has already had a stint put in her heart. Please, just be careful.
