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. It is out of my hands unless a call comes in asking for some advice outside of TP's belief system. As most of you know by now that as a Lyme disease advocate I see these things and study and research this dreadful illness of Lyme and related diseases. I have also known for sometime that some infections will tend to go away with treatment just to hide and come back another day. This is I believe what is happening with TP. The anti-inflammatory RA meds deplete the autoimmune system and when the time is right for the infection to show its ugly head once again. The infection will become stronger every time. I believe TP needs help from www.ilads.org. or the www.lymediseaseassociation.org. They are now excepted in the National Guidelines Clearinghouse for Doctors to refer to about Lyme issues. This is new and more than likely the medical community don't know about it yet. Although I realize I am not a doctor. I am a survivor, and I have found myself butting heads against a system that has been waiting for the great discovery of disease issues and now that it is here. The system refuses to  see or listen. Granted we  Lyme Advocates and Lyme community's are breaking new ground everyday but so many more to loose before the right heads are sick enough to make a difference. Good luck TP and prayers.
Lyme Advocate,
David R Thomas
