So sorry you haven’t seen progress but hope his office can get you there. It’s unfortunate that even though an endemic state NJ has so little to offer that we need to travel to get qualified treatment. Please do keep us posted;). 🤗

Oh, are you as excited as I was?

Be prepared for a long appointment. My appt. was 12:15...and they wanted me there at 11:45 to fill out paperwork. It was about 4:15 when we left....

I don't know if Washington, DC is somewhere you've been before...but we were pleasantly surprised - how beautiful it was. Even hubby was impressed. (And that's saying a lot)


Hope all goes well...and I look forward to hearing about your trip when you get back...

Thank u everyone. Yeah I’m pretty excited. I just don’t feel good on a daily basis and it’s so hard having 2 little ones and trying to put a smile on my face. I can’t live like this forever. I’m miserable ya know. I’m hoping Dr J can get me to a point where I can just function and live life. I’ve been very depressed.
Symptoms since July 2016. Very mild: slight dizziness but nothing to call the doctor about.
February 2017=flu like symptoms; felt like i was dying from February to June. Tested positive for active EBV.
June 2017= tested western blot: reactive lgm 23 lgg 41 & 66
Started ABX treatment in June to present with llmd
functioning at about 70%. determined to get to 100%

So excited for you! I haven't scheduled my appointment just yet. Kind of waiting to see how Girlie does and how I feel after babesia and barotella treatment. I'm probably about halfway through trying to treat babesia (been treating for 3 months) then I'll start hitting bart and go from there.
Very sick starting around 07/2016
Started treatment 03/2017
Bixain & Cefdinir - 3 months - plateaued
Then Biaxin & Minocycline - 3 months - did not improve
Tinidazole - 500MG 2x a day - 2 weeks
Now taking:
Mepron 5mL 2x a day
Zithromax
Nystatin
Cats Claw - 30 drops 2x a day
Gou Teng - 30 drops 2x a day
CSA - 40 drops 2x a day
Japanese Knotweed - 40 drops 2x a day
