Update

I know it’s been awhile since might last post, but I’ve been going through alot of treatment. It’s hard to write when you feel crappy. I’ve been off antibiotics for a couple of weeks. My LLMD wanted to see what symptoms I have off the drugs. It’s been nice not taking so many pills. My joints and brain are doing better, but my fatigue, stomach and eyes are still crappy. Come a long way, but still have some ways to go I think.

I have been doing the Myers coctail. I think it’s helped a little. Well see how it goes the more I use it. We’ll I’m starting to run out of brain power so I’m going to sign off!

take care people!

Eye Doctors Getting Lyme Memo

Because of Lyme Disease, my dad has eye problems and has to go in often to get his eyes checked. My dad was telling him how he has Lyme disease and to my dad’s surprise, he knew about it. The eye doctor said they’re getting memos sent out to all the specialist saying if you’re having trouble diagnosing the eye problem, give them the Western Blot test. The western blot is still not a 100%, but at least this is a big step. I was excited to hear about this. We still have a long way to go, but I thought this was a positive step in the right direction.

I tried to find out which organzation sent this memo out but couldn’t get a definite answere. It wasn’t the IDSA or the CDC. If someone finds out, please let me know so I can update my blog, thanks!

Take care Lyme People!
