i need support, and i can't get it.
i tried to be brave, but i can't help thinking about the worst.

who do i call who do i talk to?? friends want to help but its not their battle. family is in far away country don't have visa to come here yet, and when they learn everything they may break down too, and their inability to help financially or emotionally or not being able to be simply present when i need them definitely will make them feel more helpless than I feel right now for myself. Further I myself don't know if I'll be allowed to be in this country after I file my disability, not being a US citizen makes things harder for me and I don't know if this disease has any treatment in my country, plus the same abx are likely to cost three times more there.

right now i am alone. no one to care for me, but this is the beauty, right when we have fallen, we must pick ourselves and hope for better days to come!! when and how, no one knows, but i do know we all come alone and we all die in our own arms. its what we do when we are here counts and we all have it in us to fight or else we wouldn't be affected with this stupid bacteria.

thank you all for listening to me.

So sorry your having a real hard time with this right now!! I know it hard not having family around to support you. This is a great place to vent, and get some support. We all know what your going through, hang in there things will get better. May I ask where you originally from? Maybe there are LLMD's in your country.

P.S. Yes I do believe crying does help.

Hi pepphell,

I'm so very sorry that you are suffering alone. I know how frustrating this disease can be. Yes crying does help. It seems to bring relief and also lets some of those nasty toxins out. Why don't you try doing a detox bath and see if it helps.
