THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

A HEAVY HEART

Good morning all,
 My morning opens with a heavy heart this morning as one of my closest loved ones lay in a hospital bed taking antibiotic transfusions for an infection. This person (TP) suffers greatly with a RA diagnosis and also must take RA anti-inflammatory meds to control the pain. (as subscribed). There by killing the autoimmune system and allowing infections to return or move from place to place. TP has suffered so long and yet TP has such great trust in the medical community that I believe I will be watching TP fade away.

Blood supply/Babesia

An Article I recently read set me to writing once again. The article talked about Blood supply contamination, Babesia, Transfusions. But the thing that triggered this article today was the fact that this hospital is sending blood tests to organizations that do not recognize Tick Borne related diseases. The article follows.  
 This article as a Lyme and Tick Related disease advocate and survivor, Scares the bajeebers out of me. To suggest that because a world class hospital is involved in diagnosing and testing of Lyme and Tick borne related issues is absurd.

LYME TREATMENT GUIDLINES


 I just tried to click on Ilads link in NGC (National Guidelines Clearinghouse) and it said it was presently unavailable. Go figure. Couldn't find ilads or natural treatment guidelines at all. BUT I played around a bit. I came to the IDSA guidelines. Stay with me.
http://www.ahrq.gov/research/findings/factsheets/errors-safety/ngc/national-guideline-clearinghouse.html 
  ===================
Then in that search bar at NGC print ilads guidelines/lyme and you will go to the ilads guidelines

SOME SAY

Back in Jan. 2012 I wrote down a thought process (Poem) that I shared with fellow Lyme sufferers. And now as I have a better understanding of silent and invisible illnesses. I would like to share this again. With a wider audience and the invisible illness community. I wish all 2015 sufferers of anything a better 2016. We Lyme sufferers know. Poem follows.
 
 "Some Say" 
  .
Some say I’m poor, 
I say I’m priceless. 
Some say I don’t have anything, 
I say I got more.

Christmas Trees and Ticks

Christmas trees and Ticks. I thought I might try to give a little help to the fear of Ticks in trees. IN MY OWN OPINION. I think if you could take a white sheet or pillow case and gently work the white material in and out and around slowly through the tree. That would give you something of an idea if the tree is infested or not. You could do this at the place of purchase. For your info. I have included a short video My wife and I took of a tick speeding away on a piece of paper towel after extracting it from my leg.

DO YOU HAVE LYME OR NOT?

Hello Everyone,
DO I HAVE ACTIVE LYME DISEASE OR NOT? Does anyone have experience with the test offered at Advanced-Labs that grows the Lyme spirochetes from your blood for up to 4 months to determine if you have active Lyme Disease in your body.  I have problems in so many different parts of my body and want to find out definitively if it's Lyme.  I would so appreciate any information you could offer.

 1.  I am a Lyme Advocate seriously trying to help people like yourself seek and find answers.

LYME PAIN

  Fluid on the knee, also a big issue. Had a school teacher forced into retirement because of among others. Knee pain, As she was scheduled for knee surgery, she asked me if she could have Lyme. I said lets talk. We sat and had an enjoyable visit and talked about life and other ailments that she had experience over a number of years. All red flags for a Tick related illness scenario. (Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, Mold issues). When the talk was over in about 1 to 2 hrs. Can't remember how long "LYME THING".

Lymie Mother Shares

  This article came to me a few month's ago and I felt it would make a good share with at least a couple that I am helping maneuver through the maze for help in Lyme. The letter follows.  
  
  I had a couple similar on Saturday...one lady talked to me a year ago (she is pretty bad) & she went to LLMD but when she sent the bloodwork to iGeneX she put a copy of her insurance card instead of a check so they wouldn't do it.  She felt iGeneX and LLMD were wrong & besides she tried the diet for a few weeks and it did not help.

Canine Century??

   I was reading up in  Lyme Basics  this morning atwww.lymedisease.org.I lifted a paragraph that struck my mind as another usful CANINE tool for mapping Tick related illness concentrations. I feel it is a good one. Remember Your best friend has been known for years as a century for trouble to come. That article follows. " The risk of getting Lyme disease is often reflected in risk maps. Some maps show the number of human cases of Lyme disease reported for surveillance. These maps may not accurately reflect risk because only 10% of reportable Lyme cases are currently captured by CDC surveillance.

Lyme Presentation

  Talk to your local Lyme support group or Lyme advocate for a possible presentation.
 Many people think Tick borne disease issues is much like HIV/AIDs epedemic. It is not. In order to have Lyme and tick borne related issues. You do not need to be Gay, drug user or even a populer blood transfussion partcipent. You can be a mother in shorts on the playground watching her kids, or a child roling around in the yard. Many outdoorsy folks understand they need to protect themselves and yet they don't.
