I 'm getting sicker by the day, so I showed up at my Dr's office, thinking surely he will help me. He said that It's very unlikely 'cause Lyme is only found in the states. No tick, no lyme he said. They bulls eye rash could be anything, or nothing is what I keep getting from Dr.`s. What about the fact that I`m getting to the point of not being able to string together a sentence. I was sent home from work today, and they took my keys. Thay asked me not to come back until I feel better. When will that be if nobody believes me I`m getting so frustrated, and I don`t know what I`ll do if my blood test comes back negative. I feel like I`m going crazy and I need help!

And don't feel alone, I've been dismissed, yelled at, told to get a different dr., etc. It would be like going to a store to look for a dress and them telling your, "No, I'm not going to help you, happy hunting." Get a LLDr. asap and don't waste your time energy or money on anyone who treats you cr$%^y.

The only other "industry" that operates like this is the airlines.... they take your $$$$ and then can screw you for days while you wait for a non-existant flight.... or keep you on the tarmac for 11+ hours.

It's like drs. have no idea that WE PAY THEM FOR A SERVICE - they are NOT doing us a "favor".
