Hi all:
I'm new here, I'll try to fill in my journey concisely. I'm a 50 year old female.  I haven't felt really well for many years.  I saw numerous doctors and was diagnosed with everything from fibromyalgia to arthritis.  One doctor thought I needed to see a physiciatrist. Finally in 1999 I was found with MS.  Since then it's been "interesting".  Many useless drugs later I discovered Lyme.  This was 2007 and it took 2 years for the proper test to be administered and for a positive Lyme result to appear.  I could really use your help in finding a Lyme Literate Doctor in New Mexico.  I have tried some internists but none want to touch Lyme patients. Thanks for reading my rant.  It's good to know someone out there cares enough to have this forum and chat.
God Bless,
--Mary Katherine

Mary,

Dr. K. did live in Santa Fe, but now he is in Boulder, still not too far. He helped my wife and son. They got lyme while we were living in NY. He is really great and should be able to help you. Hang in there, my wife and son were on antibiotics, supplements, immune boosters, and strict diet for close to a year, but they have both been symptom free for over two years now. In fact, one of the main reasons we moved to NM was to get away from lyme, it is ridiculous in NY.

Hi Wagonman!
I'm sorry, but we don't like to share all of the contact info for any doc that is not very public. We have concerns that by openly sharing their info, it could help those that wish to harm our docs in some way to find them easier.

We need to protect out docs, so that they can continue to fight for us and to treat us. In order to share more info on a doc, please set up an email address where people can contact you & invite them to email you, please.

Thank you very much! :-)

I break up my post because my eyes have been effected by TBI's as well, which makes long paragraphs very hard to read.

Hi Mexlymie!
Welcome to Healing Well's Lyme Disease forum! I am so sorry that you have a need to be here, but I am sure glad you found us! I'm sure you will find us to be a helpful, caring and understanding group!!

If you haven't already, it would be beneficial for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled, "New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as it is packed full of relevant information and informative links that have been put together by our members here! We also have a pretty good search function on this forum to help you narrow down your search for information from past posts.

For information on finding a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor(LLMD) in your area, please email our long time member, Dan's Mother at:phassan@optonline.net

You can email Stephanie at: stephanie@turnthecorner.org You can also go to: www.turnthecorner.org/bod.htm if you want to learn a little bit more about Lyme Disease.

You can also go to The Lyme Disease Association and search for LLMD's 3 times in a month. You have to register first. Here is the link:www.lymediseaseassociation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277&Itemid=74

You will want to find an ILADS (International Lyme And Associated Diseases Society) doctor. The ILADS site is another great place to read to get you started on your Lyme journey. www.ilads.org/lyme_disease/treatment_guidelines_clearing_ilads.html

I do hope this helps. Once again, welcome to our little spot!!

Thank you Wagonman for your reply. I don't know if this is proper but if you could e-mail me the name and address of your doctor to: jacobpini@yahoo.com --that would be great. I really need help. If not, I understand and thanks again for trying to help.

Thank you for the great links and your welcome. These are very good sites for us "newbies". I did try the lymedisease association a while back and I did recieve the names and phone numbers of 3 LLMD's. None of the 3 were taking Lyme patients any longer, which is why I totally understand the need to protect the few brave doctors that are out there helping folks like myself. I'm glad I found this community, I'll troll often.

Dear MexLymie:
 
Is there any way you and I can excahnge emails (stace6799@yahoo.com).  We are in the same area and I am having a very difficult time with all of this.  I'm pretty sure I have Lyme Disease and I have even found a doc in town that claims she is a Lyme literate doc but she is VERY expensive and only takes cash or credit.  Anyway, enough complaining.  I was just wondering if you have found any luck at at.
 
Thank you!
