Thank you, it's not so much that I am strong as it is that if I tell myself I have to be then it helps. You see, my mom died of skin cancer when I was 3, and I don't want my daughter to have to grow up without a mom, like I did. So I have to do whatever it takes to get better.
I will tell you too, that as much as you would like to go the all natural route, it looks like from what I've read, that everyone here has benefited from a combination of both prescription and natural remedies.
I spoke with a woman on the phone today who said she finally had to leave her natural healing doc because the Lyme and coinfections were so strong and hard to kill that she needed something stronger than what he could offer.
Thinking of it like this helps me to push forward and try to find people and answers and help. It's like a war between you and whatever is making you sick. Know your enemy, and use whatever means it takes to defeat it/them.
Honestly you are stronger than me if you're raising two children alone. My husband is a huge support and I've got a very helpful, understanding 5 year old girl. They make me strong.
