4 Year Lyme-iversary

Four years ago today my life changed forever from a bug the size of the period at the end of this sentence. Many of you know that I have struggled greatly with my health in that time due to Lyme Disease. For two years doctors could not figure out what was wrong with me and why my health was rapidly decaying. I have now been in very intense treatments for just over two years and feel 80% better most days.

What To Do If You Think You Might Have Lyme?

There are so many people who live their daily lives with all sorts of weird symptoms, that they can’t quite put a finger on it. Perhaps you have been to various doctors and no one can figure out whats wrong. Perhaps your symptoms come and go and are so varied that you don’t think they are connected in anyway. Since they come and go you are not quite sure what to make of it and if its really caused by one thing or if you are just tired. Your body is stiff and achey but you think that is just a part of “getting old” or a result of an old injury. Your mind is not as sharp as it used to be, but you know you are under constant stress and brush it off. Perhaps your doctor has told you that you have some sort of Autoimmune Disease but they are not quite sure exactly what and the labs you have done don’t confirm anything. Perhaps your doctor has told you its all in your head and prescribed anti-depressants and anti-anxiety pills. Perhaps your doctor has told you that all your labs look perfect and that there is nothing wrong with you, but you know there is something wrong. Well maybe you have Lyme Disease and your regular doctor or specialist is not going to diagnose you with it.

Dear Bartender...

Dear Bartender, I am the girl that I ordered the Plymouth Gin and Soda with lots of lime the other night. You seemed really cool and offered to give me some lime that was already squeezed. Before I agreed and could finish asking my questions you were already pouring it in my drink and I could not stop you fast enough. You see, I wanted to ask you if it was fresh squeeze lime before you poured it in my drink, but everything happened so fast.

Why I Have Not Made It To Your Social Events Or Project Meetings For The Past 3 Years...

Most of my friends and professional colleagues don’t know that I have been battling Chronic Lyme Disease + Co-Infections, Heavy Metal Toxicity and Multiple Autoimmune Diseases for the past 3+ years. Most don’t know that I have been getting IV’s every week since June 2014. Most don’t know that I take 94+ pills/supplements/tinctures per day. Most don’t know that I have 4-5 hours of detox appointments multiple times a week in addition to all the IVs, Doctors appointments, blood tests and wellness appointments just to feel somewhat human and try and get better. Most people don't know that I recently had a procedure that filtered ALL of my blood in order to try and kill Lyme and remove Heavy Metals from my body. Most people don’t know that I have spent over 1 year trying to kill Lyme Disease and get better and am still not fully healed.

Lyme + Tick Prevention Tips

Prevention is key when it comes to staying safe from Ticks and Lyme Disease. Keep in mind that Ticks that transmit Lyme and Co-Infections can be as tiny as a poppy seed and can be very difficult to spot like in the photo for this blog post. Those are Nymph Ticks on someones hand. How are you ever supposed to find one of them on you and keep it from getting you sick? They jump onto you and find a safe place to feed for days and transmit whatever infections they are carrying. Some studies show ticks only need to be attached for an hour or less to transmit infection.

What Were My Lyme Symptoms?

This was my list of symptoms that I gave to doctors right around the time of my Lyme Diagnosis. I was experiencing all of these symptoms and no one could figure out what it was until we discovered Lyme. Fortunately as I have been treating a lot of these symptoms have resolved. I still struggle with the cognitive and neurological symptoms though. I want my brain to work more then anything and that is the last symptom to get better.
