Fell asleep around 5:30pm and woke up about 8pm. I ate about 2 cups of jasmine rice, a large salad with lots of veggies, some pineapple, and a 1/2 of a chicken burrito with a whole wheat wrap. Is it possiblethe little wrap is what made me crash? There was no way I could keep my eyes open. I can't remember if I said this before, but I walked about 3 miles this morning. My nose is back to running about 30 seconds after I blow my nose. I got a call back from Dr. K in O, he doesn't take any kind of insurance. I don't understand how I live at ground zero for this thing, and there are no doctors that treat it here and take insurance. Am I being killed by greed and politics, or a bacterial infection? I used to do business with CDC in Atlanta, and I thought they were this great organization that helps protect us. I read that IgeneX uses PCR and Electrophoresis for testing. I just happen to have an Icycler and some old OWL and Bio-Rad electrophoresis cells laying around. Are they just looking for the DNA of the bacteria? If so, that sounds so ridiculous to me, there is a better way. Obviously if the testing lab doesn't take insurance they're research funds have to be limited. It seems to me the problem isn't lyme disease, it greedy insurance companies and dirty politicians willing to take bribes to keep a loophole open for non-treatment. I could understand if someones roof leaks and the Ins. co. finds a loophole to get out of paying for it, but this is peoples lives their messing with. If only I could think straight! So a new short term goal is to learn what in the world these labs are doing with ancient DNA equipment to find bacteria in blood and urine. There is a better way, there's no doubt. I doubt they look for other bacteria in someones blood by looking for DNA from it. Can't you just do a blood culture? That's how I thought you find other bacteria and fungi in the blood. I didn't know anyone still used electrophoresis for anything other than education. I haven't seen any electrophoresis equipment in years, and when I did it was usually in a dumpster. Oh, maybe I geneX went dumpster picking in the 90's for their lab supplies. Frustrated as hell! Can't live like this anymore. The second I feel a little better and start to think maybe I am crazy and this shit is all in my head, I feel like I'm dying and realize it's not in my head, and my hopes and dreams that I'll wake up tomorrow and feel great are just hopes and dreams. Ok, done whining for today.
