Here is my reminder and last of 2012, to stay positive. Even though I will always check in on the board, it is likely I won’t be on the blog as often in 2013. This blog did the purpose. It … Continue reading

The fun stories I promised will come…
While at work today, I thought of how I will find the perfect song and tell the ideal distracting story for all who care to watch this blog. I’d rather take your mind off this hell as opposed of reminding you of it.
First, since I value the letters of others reaching out, I would like to remind any one with the doubt they will ever feel normal again. You can. You will. IF you never stop trying.
Raven, for one-of many, knows of how MINISCULE most literature, FDA, government, and insurance companies make Lyme Disease appear to the ones who don’t know any better.
The cretinous don’t realize this condition can take your life.
However, we all know that doesn’t mean we have to give up. There is hope that things can change. We know each one of us can study, research, be our very own patient-to find what puts us in the much needed necessity of herxing. (*ALWAYS remember you do NOT want to overdo the herxing. When the blessed yet painful day arrives, suffer it out. Then, stop for three days before you continue to avoid shutting down organs.*)
I would list the natural methods (over hundred..) I attempted to treat myself with for my Lyme. Although you MUST remember each Lyme victim is different. I can only tell you what changed things for me. I don’t want to encourage / discourage you into becoming desperate to go out and purchase the entire list I worked at. If you can have the IV treatment, and not in late stage Lyme, you are on the right track.
I never had the luxury of having a decent LLMD that took aggressive treatment on me. For six straight months, I took Argentyn 23 colloidal silver-three tablespoons a day, on an empty stomach. I drank a half gallon of distilled water after each dose. Along with the much needed supplements, dry brushing, peroxide hot baths. Detox is VITAL. (..natural detoxing is the only method that works in this case.)
I know what it feels like to be tired of fighting. BUT YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO TAKE IT BACK. In the end, you will be a better version of yourself than before the vampire bit you.
That little histrionic tick has had enough attention.
THIS IS ALL ABOUT YOU NOW.
Yes, if you were misdiagnosed and untreated as I was-you will most likely have damage or another situation to deal with from the aftermath. Mine being Hashimoto’s. BUT I am now in remission from the Lyme. Treated for the Hashimoto’s and have lost all my symptoms. I am working, active, clear headed, alert, & myself once again.
I am anxiously awaiting your recovery story as well.
Until then, kick back-drown yourself in some more blues-while you take your protocol-and researching — REMEMBER the day will come where you won’t want to read about Lyme any longer.
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
Did you ever feel like you have lived enough for ten people? Well, I have.
Have you ever been ashamed of who you gave your energy, time, & youth to? I have.
If you think about it, look at your health struggles as a test of some sort. It can anger you. Really pisses you off. I get it. It can even be meaningless if you try and get help…
I hate going to the doctor and yet, six years ago-I went repeatedly, to my newly graduated physician in West Virginia, to not be taken seriously. When in actuality, my case was simply over her head.
Then my anxious, money hungry neuro who fell prey to the benefits of pushing copaxone, recognized autoimmunity in me to jump on the MS bandwagon, due to my having brain lesions. *Even though Lyme Disease causes brain lesions.*
He wasn’t waiting on that check!
Stick with reality. – Makes life easier.
Now, I have learned-all along, the autoimmunity was from Hashimoto’s and the lesions from Lyme attacking the fattest parts of my body. Hence, the brain. The Lyme & Hashimoto’s battle to the prelude of a MS misdiagnosis was yet another test.
AND- to think this all started with ‘looking into possible brain cancer.’
Greed & Ignorance is alive and well, folks.
I fought for six years. No matter what I went through or how I felt, I never gave up. I have answers. I am myself again.
One constant storm.
What’s the alternative?
I was going to put all this behind me, not to write a final blog on the subject..but I feel I must. If anything I can enlighten others who have questions. And, I can write and read how I got my … Continue reading
