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.
