I have been getting treated for my lyme disease at a clinic in AZ. I was very sick for almost 5 years before I got here. I was going completely blank when I got here. With too many syptoms to list. But lets just say Alzthemiers for short. 35 Dr.s all over the world. Including Germany. And a friend told me about a friend that came here.
I live in Florida so I had to move here for a while. I am doing a 8-10 week therapy. I have about 3-4 weeks left. I am getting all of the drugs through a port that was surgically placed in my upper chest. It makes all of the treatments easy as pie.
I love the staff and the personal treatment that I get. It is so nice to deal with people who understand what is going on with me. The place is very well run. But really cold...lol Clean, and the people could not be nicer.
I feel better than I have felt in 5 years. I can complete sentences now. I can drive. I can workout. I can go out to dinner. I have energy. And I am not suicidal anymore.
I had never even been told I had Bart. till I got here. No one every found it before. I got a month of levaquine. It did not bother me at all. I took it at night before bed with a ton of water.
I am of course on many other things that they put in my port. But that was all I got just for the bart.
My pain is gone. My fog is gone. I am able to date for the first time in 5 years. My kids are thrilled that mommy is not laying in a dark room in pain anymore. I can to the beach without dying in the heat and the sun. It is so weird to wake up feeling good...every day.
My x husband paid for my whole treatment and put me on a plane to come out here within 3 days of finding out about this place. My 12 year old was crying her eye out to him daily. I did not know who she was some days.
Many of the people at the clinic that I have had the pleasure to meet have gotten gotten 60 to 100% of coverage with their insurance. This I am hearing more and more. And this is delightful news to me.
It is also wonderful to see people come and go and leave a different and vibrant person.
I hope that they soon branch out all over the country. It saved me.
My treatment started in Oct. But I have to admit. I was a bad girl and every time I felt good I would run back home to be with my children. I was thrilled.
So were they. So this is why it has taken me a while. I also took a month off during x-mas. It is usually the sadest time of the year for me with my family gone. But I did just fine and really had a wonderful time...for a change. I was up for all of the fun and all of the parties!
But I came back and not because I wanted to finish. Becuase I feel fine already. But I we have already paid for it all. And I do need to finish. So I have make a commitment to do so. So here I am. Three weeks left and so much better and with a new life ahead of me.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.
