Well, it has been way too long since I was last on this forum! I see there are a whole new bunch of really friendly 'faces' here to whom I would like to say hi, and it is nice to see some of the 'oldies' are still here doing the fantastic job they do
So I am back for a few reasons, mostly cos I miss you guys, but also as a bit of an update - hopefully a little hope for the newer folks here - and also because I am conducting my own 'research' and will maybe looking for a little advice....
Good news first - I have made some FANTASTIC progress while I have been AWOL. I am please to report that I have rid myself of most of my nasty symptoms one way or another (of which there were many...oh, so many, lol) I feel I really ought to compile a list of before and now, just so that folks who are suffering badly can see just what can happen
I have recently had a few return, but that I put down to one MASSIVE change in my life...
....I had a baby in December!! After 16 years in a relationship never planning on having kids and despite precautions against conceiving (especially with having Lyme) I discovered I was pregnant last April. Oh, what fun that turned out to be (don't get me started, lol) and of course it meant a significant adjustment to my treatment, I am overjoyed to have a (so far) very healthy and currently thriving little man despite the lyme
I don't want to turn this into one of my 'book length' posts, lol, but I did just want to 'touch base' here and I do so miss this place. I don't have internet access at home, so it has been a little tricky to stay connected the past few months (oh, jeez, it is nearly a year - arrgghh!!) but I am visiting my mum in the UK at the moment where civilisation means the internet is on tap 24/7, so I hope to be around for a short while at least. And this is my pledge to get out of my own house more often, now that I am able to, and touch base here more often than once in a blue moon, lol!! (Oh, no, don't mention those, I loathe those moons, LOL!!!)
Anyway a great big 'HELLOOO' to you all and hope everyone here finds the comfort, support and answers to their questions just as I did, and a great big 'THANK YOU' to those here who pulled me through - you know who you are and you know I can't thank you enough
