Hey everyone. I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be helping out 1Bitten2XShy in Moderating the Lyme Forum. I am VERY honored that I was chosen and I hope you will all be happy with me.
I wanted to post some things about myself for the people that don't know me well yet. I am 39 years old and have been married for 15 years. I have 2 daughters, one who is 19 and one 15. My family means the world to me. I also have 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am an animal lover as well and I used to save stray cats and adopt them out to good homes.
I was diagnosed with Lyme in 2007 but didn't start treatment then because it was very overwhelming for me and I really didn't know enough about Lyme. I felt alot better in 2008 and pretty much brushed off the notion of having Lyme Disease until I got really sick the end of last year and had a bad herx on antibiotics. So....here I am, starting treatment and wishing for the best.
I will try really hard to do everything I need to do here and I hope everyone is happy with me. You are all my friends and you all know I care for each of you. Having Lyme is a hard road and it will be a whinding road for most of us but we have each other and thats what counts.
I hope everyone is feeling good today and I will talk to you all later:)
