I am not sure when I first got infected. I don't remember a bite or rash. There seem to be some talk that maybe I got this from my Mother. She is infected too, and so is my sister. I fear my daughter has it as well. I see her getting some of the same symptoms I have. I was diagnosed a year ago and begun antibiotics with a lyme dr. in Missouri. But first I spent years having Dr.'s telling me I have Lupus, Fibro, chronic Fatigue, depression, anxiety disorders, Rheumatioid arthritis, antiposhpalipid symdrom, mitro valve prolaps, and stomach gas (of all things). Now then, I am seeing double alot, along with spots in my eyes, and little floaty things that look to be swiming in my eyes. I got better with antibiotics for a while, but they don't want me to take each one more than a month or so. I read alot of people take more than one at a time, and for longer periods at a time. I am confused about this and would love to hear more from others.
Lately I seem to be slipping back into the same symptoms I had last year... swelling achy mucsles, headaches, swollen glands, fevers, fatigue etc. not sure what I'm doing wrong. I havent really detoxed, but read the info at the top of the forum.
This diesease has consumed my life and taken it over. I can't work much anymore and I feel like all I do is whine! who wants to live with that? Trying hard to believe and hope for God's healing, but i'm struggling to keep my head above water (and my marriage). I need to get on disability but not sure if I qualify or even how to go about that. I am assuming there are people here that have.
I live in Illinois and have been seeing a Lyme Dr. in Missouri. If anyone knows of another in the facinity I would love to know about them.
thank you for your reply

Hi Cajun girl
yeah I got it too. maybe i should try rifampin again. my hands hurt so much at times i can bearly use them. I read alot of post and it doesn't seem that anyone gets healed. does that ever happen? Have u tries IV antibiotics? do you think they help better? I have an appointment with my Lyme Doc. in May and think I'm going to ask him to put me on them.
It seems most people are taking more than one antibiotic at once. My doc didn't do that. Should he? Why do people take more than one at a time?
Thank you for your reply's. I commend your devotion.
I so appreciate all the info you've shared. I can't tell you what a relief it is to talk to people that don't think I'm nuts.!! How long have u and your wife had lymes? Dr. C says I've had this most of my life if not from birth. I've ordered the book you have recommended... can't wait to get my hands on it. Got stuff for Detox bath, but still looking for the brush that's recommended. Do you know where I might buy one.
This might be a personal question, but worth the risk,... Are you and your wife christians? The reason I ask is that the clinic you recommended seems a little like another clinic I went to in Chicago (they think everyone has leaky gut) and performed some strange things with magnets. scared me a little. They talked about being there for two weeks. Did you do that? if so dare I ask how much that hurt your wallet.?? My wallet is getting very tight these days, as my husband and I are both physically struggling.
On a positive note... I'm still sucking air today! and that's always a good thing. Again, thank you for all your info. It is a breathe of fresh air!
Yes It has been a beautiful weekend. I love the spring, Everything is coming to life again. I see the Lord everywhere!
I am willing to go to what ever length, including spending $5000 or more if needed, but convincing my husband to go to another clinic might be a struggle. He was not keen on the last one. Neither was I.
No one says how long your supposed to do the Detox baths. Perhaps I will learn more when I get the book.
Again, thank you so very much for all this info. I am having my husband read your letters too. He is protective of me since he has been trained as a nurse. he still thinks in terms of regular medicine and traditional Dr.'s. Hard to convince him otherwise. We haven't been married very long, so we have along way to go with our communication skills
