Hang in there Rori!! That test result may be positive if read by someone who understands how to read one! I realize that you need a doc behind you to get your disability. Here are some links to help with getting disability:
If that test was truly negative, don't panic about
that either. Depending on exactly what the infection is doing at the time of the test -if it's not active in your blood stream - you may be able to get a positive on the next test. Many LLMD's suggest 6 - 8 weeks of abx before testing to help the body mount that immune system reaction the tests are looking for.
Of course, I do have to agree with Shabbychic though also - especially since I'm using a natural protocol as well.They do work quite well, but I'm not here to try to convince you or anyone else to use them. I'm only here to help!
Here's a link that will take you to "Lyme Info" that has quite a few links to follow to help you figure out what's next: www.lymeinfo.net/insurance.html
I do hope that the answers become very clear to you soon!
