I have great compasion for you having to deal with lyme for five years. Next week, June 7th will be my one year aniversay and I am already at witts end. I was diagnosed and started treatment after only six weeks of becoming ill, unfortunately all I received was the standard CDC guidelines treatment protocol which wasn't enough to cure me. Here I am a year later feeling lousy as ever wondering when this will ever end.
Yes, we need to be advocates for those who are newly infected and warn those that live in endemic areas of taking the proper precautions.
Thanks for posting and have a great holiday weekend!
Peace and Healing
