My right eye is giving me issues today and having a tough time reading with out getting dizzy.

It's like my right eye is not blinking at exactly the same time as my left or something. Also, when I cover my left eye, my right eye isn't seeing things as clearly.

(The eye part is just me ranting, not the purpose of this post.)

Along with all the other bs in life, worried my ex will somehow use this dx against me. Gave my new attorney a heads up just in case.

Now I'm having to debate her, I mean educate, (yes, my attorney), because she is telling me that Lyme is not passed sexually or congenitally.

She sent me a link saying as much, so I'd like to send a few back her way.

Regardless, both my ex and my children have been exposed to the same environments as me; therefore, they could have been bitten also.

My point is that he can't use it against me if he has it too. When one party accuses the other of drug use for example, both parties have to submit to drug testing.

If he tries to pull something like that, I want him to be required to be tested through IgeneX.

UGH.

It's definitely a sexually transmitted disease. I have to go to some errands this afternoon. When I get back I will compile some links for you to give to your attorney.

Hopefully others will provide them until then.

Oh, by the way, I got lyme disease from a blood transfusion. That says a lot right there.

Blessings all-

I don't know if this one has been posted yet, but here's one to add..

http://www.samento.com.ec/sciencelib/4lyme/ recoveryoflyme.html

This next one is the one that Betty posted just recently..

http://www.canlyme.com/sex.html

Glitchy, I'm sorry your ex is putting you through this. I would think if anything it would be something to use in your favor..not against. It would appear to me that he wasn't supportive of his wife when she was ill..

Blessings to you, I pray it all works out for you..

peace-kim

Kim, you are correct. He was not supportive of me when I was sick because he didn't believe I was sick, and all I could get diagnosed with was depression and hypothyroidism.

However, I'm trying to let go of that resentment and move on with co parenting our two great kids.

I am just trying to prepare myself mentally just in case he tries to use my health against me.

Hi Glitchy-

I understand the need for preparation, and I think it's great that you are letting the resentment go for your children..that makes you a great parent of great kids..

I hope what was posted was enough information to help you. Davmark really went to town!

Good luck and God bless.

peace-kim
