 so i went to renew my health ins today. i have to do this every 6 months. i was talking to the lady who i have to go thro to see Drs and she asked for a update on my progress..LOL what progress i said.
 
so i told her of the walls i was running into, and then i explained to her about needing to see a LLMD. but that the closest one to me was about 700miles away. 1 in Dallas and 2 in Co.
 
well she told me if they will take my ins then they will pay for it maybe. the LLMD will have to agree to take it and call them to set things up for me. so do i yet again get my hopes up to have ice cold water dashes in my face again.
 
i am going to call the 2 in Co. tomorrow and see what happens. if this does work out then all i have to figure out of how to get there and back. fun fun fun. no one can every say this disease is boring. we may sit or lay a lot but our fingers and voices sure do get a workout.LOL

If none of the LLMD's take your insurance, you might see if any Naturopathic physicians take your insurance. This way, you could at least start some kind of lower cost homeopathic and/or herbal program and hopefully start getting somewhere with treatment. I kept my symptoms under control for a long time with alternative stuff, so it may buy you the time you need to get into a better financial situation or to raise funds for more hard-core treatment.

Good luck,

I will pray for you hunny!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just know something will work!!!
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. Alice in wonderland.
