A special thankyou for my very first donation from fellow Lyme sister Terra Allen <3
In 2006, I got sick. Doctors made me feel that I was crazy and there wasn't anything really wrong with me. I was ultimately diagnosed with fibromyalgia and told there wasn't anything that could be done. The end of last year, I had a close relative mention to me something how my symptoms sounded a lot like Lyme Disease. I didn't really think I could have a disease for this long without knowing. However, I immediately got tested for Lyme Disease and a band showed. Because of this, my PCP sent me to an infectious disease doctor. I was full of so much hope. When I got there, he told me that there is no way I have Lyme disease because it doesn't exist here. I left his office for the first time in my life in tears from a doctor. My PCP then tried sending me to another infectious disease doctor. They refused to see me. My PCP then tried a whole separate practice a couple hours away and they wouldn't even call me back. For days and days, I tried on my own to find someone who would see me. I eventually found a functional medicine PA that would see me. She ordered over 12000 dollars in testing not covered by insurance. She also does not take insurance, nor are any of her supplements covered by insurance. The results of the testing showed that I did have late stage Lyme disease, neuropathy, Bartonella, and a couple other coinfections. I have spent thousands over the last few months and I am no better at all. The hair loss, memory loss, and sight loss continues at a rapid pace. My pain level is also at an excruciating level. I am trying so hard to be positive but it is difficult when so many things are stacked against me.My last hope is trying to see an actual Lyme literate doctor but they are ridiculously expensive and there isn't any near me. With my level of health, I really feel that I need to be monitored and seen by someone who has experiences with late stage Lyme cases. I know you are thinking," insurance should cover treatment." But it doesn't. AT ALL. Seeing a Lyme literate doctor is my only hope in ever getting my health back. I have three beautiful,young children that need their mommy to get better. They deserve a healthy mommy.Please help me get the money that I need to make that happen. All funds will all be used for Lyme treatment and travel expenses.
