I had many great fabulous things happen to me in the last few years.
Lee Ann Womack smiled ear to ear to me as I intensely watched her perform as I was in the front with my family. I went back to how I was raised in daily spirituality. We found the cottage that seemed to be waiting for us. Our daughter makes us more proud with each passing year. I feel blessed.
Then as you Lymies know, every time I think my Lyme is gone, poof! There’s that wishful subconscious thinking, I realize how significantly different I would feel if it weren’t for Lyme. I’ve had it for 19 years now and told once chronic, there’s no cure.
The medical community is genuinely baffled what to do once there’s no bullseye rash, and months have gone by as we victims are being told lies all because most doctors simply can’t bring themselves to say, “Oh I’m so sorry you know what I don’t want your insurance money and waste your time, I don’t know how to fix you!”
That won’t happen.
19 year illness veteran here.
You’ll leave with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Anxiety, or Multiple Sclerosis.
I’m not one to complain but if you had this long lived infection all from not catching it in time to get to antibiotics, you’d be pretty ticked off too. No pun intended.
Everything in the article I posted in the last blog is what happens with Lyme disease. If chronic it’s like going to gamble, you don’t know how your day will pan out. My LLMD that treated a famous athlete for Lyme in Hermitage, Pennsylvania as well had blatantly stated, “Hospitals do not know how to properly test for Lyme”.
That’s an understatement.
I was so scared of multiple sclerosis that Hermitage, PA appointment was the first time I broke down in tears to a medical professional.
As my husband asked if I was alright the Lyme doctor simply let me cry, which I needed, and said “she’s in shock, she’s relieved”.
My years of being told and treated with steroid shots that I had MS while having a real time brain damaging relapse in Lyme disease will never leave my memory, Alzheimer’s or not. I’ll always remember what it feels like for the medical community to grab a straw and shove you in a folder. I’m sure they are overwhelmed with their calendar but they need to remember empathy, and that we are counting on them for repairs and the cold hard truth.
I wasn’t having it. I knew they were mistaken. You can think the same way. Human beings do make mistakes regardless of title. Don’t give up, fight for yourself.
All illnesses and sickness is scarring for the patient. We assume we’re in good hands, especially if you go to the best. I’m here to tell ya if you were diagnosed with MS and you have no disability, I’m not the only person I know of in my shoes. It’s becoming a common theme in the exact regions of the world that carry the highest cases of Lyme disease.
I can vouch for being proud to know couple badasses with a good heart that walk carrying MS, and I know of people with Lyme that are disabled but we are all damaged permanently in one way or another with these two combative diseases that look so similar to the medical community.
Many towns are afraid of Lyme disease as well. I’ve lived many places and all of them took a defensive stance to my medical record to swiftly say “you didn’t get that here!” Every single time I replied “you’re right, I got it in West Virginia”.
If you have to travel to find help, you have to figure it out. You have no choice because even if you don’t cure yourself you can put your body at ease.
Since I’m a chronic Lyme carrier I read and researched non stop to make my life more peaceful.
*Here are the steps I’ve taken –
*Drank colloidal silver for intense detox. Tablespoon held under tongue 1 minute/daily for 6 – 12 months. Gallon of water immediately afterwards.
I was told years later I must have killed 1 strain from this. (I have the 4 markers for Lyme in my bloodstream).
!This is dangerous attempt to be done carefully to not kill yourself accidentally! It will also enforce herxing – brace yourself – Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction is an adverse response to toxins released by bacteria killed by treatment. You’ll feel like you have a severe flu or you got hit by a bus, but others experience even worse.
*Low Dose Naltrexone (standing results to positivity to one w/Lyme) 3 mg or 4 mg
*Baths in highest temp as possible for 30 min per day;
• 1/2 lb Himalayan Crystal salt
• 1 lb Epsom salt
• 1/2 cup Baking Soda
• 1/2 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
• 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
*No meat whatsoever
*Magnesium Spray on skin
*Splenda only, if you consume sugar your heart will go into high palpitations from the Lyme. Remember: Lyme LOVES sugar.
(My heart has been professionally tested, it’s healthy).
If you fight Lyme you’re fighting a non stop infection. Fight back with every avenue you have. I took the above protocol, counted my blessings, and rested / relaxed my body when I am symptomatic.
Doctors really are a few and far between entity on Lyme disease. So you have to relax your body in every way possible that works.
If any Lyme sufferers need a doctors list in your state that prescribes LDN, I’ve attached the comment button. I don’t approve commentary for privacy issues but I will happily provide the list or help you in any way I am able.
