turn I  leave in a couple of hours. Off to the airport to hop a plane to California to see an LLMD for the first time.
I am both excited and scared. Doctors are telling me LLMDs are "quacks". I have to give it a try.
I am worried about the cost, I am worried about side-effects.
I have hope.

wow that is great. where are you flying from. ??
who is the doctor?
It is so important to have super lyme savy doc.

drink lot of water. I always wear black when I fly. It makes me feel protected from all the insane energy on the
plane and in the airport.

good luck

Take a deep breath! You will be fine:) Look at it this way.....you can't just sit around and do nothing. What will the doctor's calling the LLMD's quacks do for you?

I'm so thankful for my LLMD, he listens, he really cares and he prescribes medication for me that he knows will help. GO for it and believe in yourself, you are doing the right thing. I could have started a year ago had I listened to people on another forum, but I said "me? Lyme's nahhh" I quit kicking myself and now I'm accepting treatment. Hugs to you.
Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC.Just found out 4 years into it I might have Lyme's Disease, going to a LLMD in December. Confirmed Lymes on 12/8/09 before my new antibiotic protocal from my LLMD, I  Started and stopped LDN ON 1/25/09 to mid May no improvements. Tried Asacol, Pentesa, Colozol, Sulfasulsadine and Lialda, they made me worse. A range of antibiotics, not much better. Supplements: Threelac, multi, iron,Allimed Allicin, Apple Cider Vinegar, very low yeast/sugar/wheat  No UC meds at this time.

One thing I have learned, and I am new to Lyme Disease myself, is You have to be your own Dr. Its scary how many Dr's dont even want to hear the word "lyme". A neurologist I saw got all offended when I mentioned Lyme, and that is what indeed it is.
Listen to your gut, and do lots of reading. Good luck with the new Dr!
