Thanks Leo, Ray & the rest of You..
As some of you may know it's been a really long year, not only for Myself but for My wonderful Family as well.
I seen more quacks (doctors who just treat symptoms & not the illness) in the last year then most see in a life time. They (the quacks) didn't know what was going on, but they still made me worse by prescribing the wrong drugs and by doing so, in the end making me now have what is known as Cronic Lyme & Co-infections. Before my lyme disease diagnosis I was even told I had a short time to live by one of those quacks. I couldn't walk, talk, lift or hold weight, I lost 45lbs while eatting like a pig and they said theres nothing wrong with you it's all in your head.
To make a really long story short. I had went with my gut feelings and I was right. I'm somewhere in the area of 75%-80% health, and with God & My Lyme Literate Doctor (LLMD) I should return to a almost full recovery (99%).
For anyone who knows someone who has a flu, or flu like symptoms that won't go away after many different antibotics, don't rule out lyme & never let them give you streoids. Remember this; the lyme tests come up false negative more than 70% of the time, something I had to learn the hard way (thats another long story), but using the right doc & lab can save a life.
It is very worthwhile for anyone with LYME to get in with one of the best since that gives you someone who actually can get rid of this disease for you. With inadequate treatment, you won't really get rid of it. Remember, All lyme doctors are not equal, just as in the medical community in general. If you think you or someone you know has LYME contact ILADS.ORG & stay away from the IDSA doctors. The IDSA, CDC & Yale University is corrupt & it reaches the highest levels of health care & big pharma.. (another long story I'll avoid). But you can view some of these things in search links;
Just one story of what we go through in the world of quacks & LYME.
Btw, the doctor I see, is not the doc in that story. The doc in this story (Dr.J) would not be my first choice. Let me know if anyone should need a lyme doc, and one that will give someone their life back. I would gladly help by sending a list of the best in the country..
I appreciate Everyones thoughts and Prayers.
Prayers & All Thanks Be to God...
PS; Ray, How is your niece these days?
