How did I cope with the diagnosis? I cried tears of relief.
I had been sick for 15 months...with many symptoms...and I was sent to numerous Docs to have MS, ALS, Parkinson's disease ruled out..
I was happy to have 'something' that could be treated...
But, my optimism waxes and wanes...as I initially thought I would be completely better within a year....sigh.
I have some information - places in the UK you could look into for treatment if you're interested.
If you are going to self-treat...please educate yourself. You can also subscribe to a LLMD's online treatment book. He lists many protocols on there.
it's something like $4.99 per month.www.treatlyme.net
You will want to start detoxing your body right away...in preparation for treatment.
This will help with herxing.
