as ya'll know from me other post. i have stopped all my meds.
main reason for this is. after over a year on celerbrex i was still in a lot of pain. so i thought why take this and  have pain still, when there so many sides to worry about. now i dont have to worry if its going to hurt my liver, as i was getting it checked every 3 months.
i didnt have any sides from it , i was very lucky there.i just felt i was taking all this med and not one helped me. pain meds , meds for muscle spasms, meds for vertigo, meds for this that and the other. but not a 1 for lyme. as my Drs do not belive it is in my part of the state. what a joke....
so anyways i stopped, i'm no worst or better for it tho. so i see no harm there. now i have stress to add in my mix.
the other night my b/f's step dad was rushed to the ER thinking he had a stroke. MRI showed no stroke. he has a brain tumor.
then they found  more in his lungs.
we are both scared and worried for his and his mother, as she is not able to drive now.
then to add to all this. i had to rush my dog to the ER vets the night b4. he is haven trouble walking.
he is almost 11 yrs old and i have cried for the last 2 days over him. at 130lbs i can not pick him up. and if he isnt able to  walk well enough..
he is like my child, and i know he is old for a huge dog. but he is my baby.
so as you see i have a full plate of stress here. and i pray it doesnt send my lyme into over drive.
i will check in when i have the chance, as i pray for each of you daily. your all in my thoughts and prayers :)
still looking for answers.

Oh hun! I am so sorry. When it rains it pours. Of course, we all know this, but it doesn't help!
My dog and my cats are like my kids as well. I honestly do not know what I would do without them. I will pray for you and your family and your dog:) I hope that he can get better, but if he can't and you have to put him down, just know that it is the right thing if he is in pain that can't be fixed. He will still love you and wait for you in heaven. I personally believe that pets go to heaven. I don't care what anyone else says! They are filled with the love and obedience that we are meant to have so why wouldn't they?
Anyway, God bless you. He will pull you through this!

Oh RD!!
Yep, you got stress!! As if just having to live through Lyme isn't enough!!

You said that the docs in your parat of the state don't believe in LD. What about doing a homeo tx at home?? There are a couple of different homeo tx that seem to be able to be done at home, there may be more - but it's too much for this Lymie to grasp!!

You, your b/f & all of your family & critter will be in my thoughts & prayers as well.

Please let us know how things are going when you can.

TAke the best care of yourself as you can~
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.

I am sorry for all the heartache you are having all at once. I have a cat that was just diagnosed with a fatal disease (he can hardly walk) but online I found out there is a new experimental drug that is saving these animals. My cat is the only one in the state that has been accepted into the trial study. Sometimes you can find miracles. Sometimes they are just dead ends like that glimmer of hope falling into a black hole.
We are all about finding those glimmers of hope and passing them along. Maybe one of them will light up our world a little bit.

There is something you might want to try for yourself and your dog. Someone on another forum recommended it for lame horses and everyone that has tried it calls it a miracle. It is a mineral vitamin mixture called Equine Leg Magic that is also produced for dogs and humans in another formula. I bought some for my horses and the vet who makes it sent me a free sample for my dog. He is 15 years old with really bad hind legs. He weighs 120 lbs. and his life span is amazing for a dog his size. He also has a partial paralysis of the back of his tongue so he does not swallow the way he should and saliva runs into his lungs which he heaves up about 5-6 times a day. He has done this for 3 years! After a week on the ELM his heaving has been cut down in half, half the times and half the amount. He has not vomited once today and that is so nice. That is not coincidence. I have been taking 2 grams of the horse formula because I didn't know there was a human one. The pain in my shoulder is so much better I rarely notice it. I sleep much better at night. I feel healed of that pain - knock on wood. I have tried some remedies that are very expensive and don't even work. My herbs cost over five hundred dollars a month. This costs me pennies a day and it works. Of course I am using the horse formula so I take a lot less of it. If you google it online you can find the site and also people who have posted about it.

Hi RD,

I'm so sorry you've got all this on your plate at once! I'll be praying for your step-friend's dad, and you for dog too! I'm glad you're not feeling any worse off all your medications, at least.

RD, I am so sorry for all you are going through. It certainly is a bit much. Your boyfriend's step-dad, you and of course your precious baby will be in my prayers. Hang in there RD and know that you have so many people praying and pulling for you. Sending you lots of hugs.

thank you all for your kind words, as i sit here in tears knowing i have the love of so many whoem i have never meet, it shows that there are still folks out there who really do care.

so now i have even toped the stress cake. i now think i have N1H1. joy oh joy...

i'm so lucky to live in a place that has been over run by N1H1. you would think they would place people at the ER coming in with it in a different place so not to infect others. but then again that would take some brains..

anyways after sitting at the ER for many hours waiting for them to place him in a room. me and 2 others are now sick. i had my reg flue shot about 4 weeks ago.

and it has been said on the news and by my PCP even that if you get the flue here this year, its more then likely to be N1H1.

if i am able to get out of bed tomorrow i am going to the Drs. maybe they can help me with it. i know i dont hold out much hope there anymore since getting LD. i have just loss faith in Drs.

as for Blue. my dog. he seems to be doing a lil better. when he whent outside tonight. he was able to make it up the steps without my help. it was slow going but he did it.

we even built a ramp for him out front. but he will not use it :(

once again thank you for your words of kindness. your all in my prayers :)

I am sorry that you have the flu yourself on top of everything! We have a ramp for our dog too and you can help him learn how to use it. Have one person put a leash on him and the other person support his hind by wrapping a long winter scarf under his belly right in front of his rear legs and holding both ends up. He will feel more secure and get the idea. I am glad he is feeling a little better.
