Here is one website that you can look through to see if there are any support groups listed where you live -www.lymeinfo.net/support.html
Another thought on the subject of spouses having a hard time understanding what we live with - is that maybe they can only handle so much bad news about
the person they love. That is it in a nutshell for me. My hubby is really great at 'helping' me from day to day with the verbal challenges, or any of my mental challenges each day. He never complains when I have to sit out a partial or entire day, don't feel well enough to go out with him (even to his doctors sometimes), or even cook dinner. But
, if someone asks him or says they may have been exposed - he immediately tells them that his wife knows more than any gp knows!! He then will tell them that if they need to know more that he can email them any number of links that he can get from me for them to learn more or find support, or sometimes to help them find a doc that can really
Hubby never has participated in drs visits, watching any video or reading any info about
tick-borne illnesses. He does know how much time I spend on line reading, on the phone with those Lymies that call me to talk them through something (I know, I still have a hard time believing they want my help!!! tee hee!), reading in conventional books about
TBI's, and how many times my gp has asked me to bring info in for him to use, etc., etc.,
I think that sometimes spouses can only handle so much bad news about
the person they want to spend the rest of their lives together.
This is all just my opinion though!
Even the mightiest oak tree was once a little nut who held it's ground!!!
May we all find peace along the journey to find healing.
