THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

September 2013

I RECENTLY READ

 I recently read an article of a well intention lady of her search in finding help for lyme. This was my response.----You have been seeing the wrong Doctor. Your first mistake was you should have been talking with your local lyme support group and taking notes from them. National lyme disease asso. is a great place to start. I am a full blown lyme sufferer that saw a doctor for years and treated my lyme and found that was not enough. I feel there is a good test for lyme in the I-genex pcr lyme test.

EDUCATED FOOLS

Hello and I have found something that puzzles me a bit. It has to do with those who I feel would benefit by having an I-genex PCR test and associated tick borne disease test for coinfections. I have found that when I know that there is a good chance that there is an infection and individuals won't listen. It breaks my heart when I know them well. I know a family, mother and daughter that have issues with fatigue and nerves and both very well educated. This reminds me of a teacher when I was a boy in second grade. She was chatting with my parents and talked about her bout with breast cancer. She was a wonderful teacher, students loved her and yet with all her knowledge and courage. She found herself not following friends advice and denying the possibility she was really sick. She told my parents just before she died she was an educated fool. I now know the definition of that term. But I have talked and mentioned my theories and I know that is all I can do. When I got into this advocating for lyme sufferers, I did not realize I was also learning about people. When you are to close to a situation and people think of you differently when their close. You must have the courage too treat them equally as I do anybody else. The term that triggered this article was sensory overload. I am sure that diagnosis is probably correct. My big question is why it happens. But after going through this kind of thing for many years as I was, chasing diagnosis. I was diagnosed with anxiety, depression, fatigue and eventually while attacking my heart. I found a lyme literate Doctor who agreed to look at me and I found myself getting a handle on my health. If I had somebody that new about lyme then I would probably listen. But then I am not an educated fool.

A BUT KICKING UPDATE

    A but kicking update is something I have not written about. Or at least while I have been getting my but kicked. The past few days I have felt fatigued but found the strength to keep moving. Today after a fine visit with my son in-law and a short rest. I found myself getting very tired , my hands were heavy, legs are weak and I am not that hungry. I know what is going on and I must listen and relax and take it. I am sure this is what some of my fellow lymee advocates call the herx.
