Sick, looks like I am the first to post on here and I have little to no knowledge on the Bart. I also do not know anything about
the meds you have right now. But I am here to tell you that you must hang on, you must be a Mommy, even if a sick Mommy, and you must pray for strength, just as we will pray for that for you. And you must keep begging on this forum, just as you have just done.
I am here to tell you the little that I do know. Penicillin is effective against Lyme. I do not know the doses, but I believe they are high. My LLMD says that injections are very effective because you can take a lot w/o affecting the digestive system. I will be taking high doses of Amox when my Doxy is gone.
I do not know anything about
the chances of building resistance to penicillin, but surely someone here would know? I cannot advise you to take something like this w/o the help of a physician, but I also know you must do what you have to to survive. Maybe you/we will be able to find some answers on this.
My health dept is of no use, but other health depts might be if you need something as simple as penicillin. Please try to call them.
Penicillin is cheap. Maybe you could at least get enough to start feeling better and gathering the strength to move forward, if nothing else.
I think another important thing you should do is contact your county mental health dept. Since your mental health has been impacted so deeply, they will be able to help you and maybe would even know where you can get some phsyical help. There are agencies that maybe they can help you find.
Maybe they won't believe in Lyme, but you must make add'l copies of your labs and you must beg them for help. That is a start. Since you will only be asking for penicillin, I believe there is someone who may help you if you show them your labwork and explain it as best you can.
Even tho we are not MDs, you do have some meds prescribed by a physician, even tho he has written you off. In that case, I believe it is OK for others to advise you. But you'll need to gather all the advice you get and then try to reach a decision.
And even tho your Dr has dropped you, maybe you should try calling him again and again, at the very least to advise you on the abx you have now.
Please hang on. Someone will know where you can turn for help.
