This is a very hard message for me to write. Lyme and company have been in my family and in my wife's family for generations. These European lyme diseases have affected the minds of about half of the people in both our families. There have been suicides, mental illness, alzheimer, schizofrenia, etc. When one looks at our respective family trees, we look lie a family from hell. Dear wife and I are the first in our family to realize what this bad element in our makeup is. It is passed from mother to offspring over the generations, and we both are just links in this ugly chain of generations of lyme and company.
How has this lyme family epedemic manifested itself in our immediate family? We have now 2 adult kids ages 44 and 40. We believe that we have passed our lyme on to both of these kids. Both our kids have estranged themselves from us and there has been no meaningful contact with either one for the last 15 to 20 years. Our kids think we are deranged in fighting this lyme battle and they think that this is a bunch of rubbish. And we look at our kids and we feel badly because we both now realize that they are the way they are with lyme passed on to them via placenta when they were born.
Daughter has gone onto this lyme discussion group and she has figured out who I am - her dad. She has written some very nasty email letters to my dear wife telling her that dear wife is a quack. That wife is nuts, and that I have bought into this crazyness called lyme, and she says that the police should be looking into what we are doing. In emails to wife, she openly tells wife that wife will go to jail if wife continues advising me on working on cleansing my body of lyme. The fact that my knee seems to be destroyed for now by lyme is just proof to our daughter how deranged dear wife is and she is telling these opinions about us to further family members. Families are now totally split and there is no solution. Son takes part in this too. At Christmas time we dropped off gifts and toys for the grandkids, as we do every year, and son as every year calls us to have the police come to us with threats of peace bonds. Our grandchildren are afraid of us because of what their parents have told them about us. Wife and I are heartsick and it is very difficult to try and think positive about our situation. I am so disappointed with what daughter has done in coming onto this group and used my information that i posted about myself as a battering ram to have another go at dear wife. I cannot imagine a worse situation as both our offspring seem to be in unison as to how to relate to us. I cannot imagine how we conceived such offspring who do not care about their parents one iota. We supported both of them till their early and mid twenties and there was nothing but love, but now there is nothing, just nothing left.
Quote our daughter, "If you continue the way you are, i will not be around to wipe your asses when you are old and all alone." I am devastated by this turn of our family lyme story. Can anyone relate to this horror show? xfmlg
