I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease in June of 2014. I knew this tick bite was different than any other tick bite I had ever had.
Within a week I was experiencing symptoms. I did 13 months of a pulsed oral antibiotic therapy. Ultimately, I was referred to a specialist in D.C. From there I had a series of tests and scans done. Lesions were found on my frontal lobe due to this horrific disease. I underwent 7 months of IV medications through my fancy new subclavian line I had to get placed in my chest. It was tough to say the least. I went to sleep many nights not knowing if I was going to wake up again because I was so sick.
I am now 3 months off of IV and happy to report that I am doing great! My hopes for this blog is to share my story to help others that are dealing with this horrific disease. I want to share the tips and tricks that have helped me a long the way. Everything from detox methods and diet to navigating through this disease mentally. I am positive. I can find humor in anything. I am on my road back to health. I am happy.
