I'm 48 and unfortunately, my memory isn't very good but I'll do my best.

About 15 years ago, I began experiencing debilitating pain in my knees. My migraines increased and I developed memory loss and horrible fatigue.

This went on for about 6 weeks when they finally diagnosed me with Lyme. I cannot remember the test they used but it did come back positive.

Throughout the years, the symptoms returned and I had number PICC lines put in. Each time the 28 treatment was completed, I felt like a new person.

Then, whenever I would get sick or end up with pneumonia, the symptoms would (always with something new) return with a vengeance.

In February of this year, I fell at work and ended up with whiplash.

I've been struggling with depression and migraines for a few years now along with horrible pain in my hips.

About three months after the fall, I developed floaters in my eyes (My right eye is horrible. It's like looking thru lace). I saw a specialist and he believes it is due to my Lyme.

So after waiting two months to get an appointment with an LLMD in Wisconsin, it turns out I can't afford even his blood tests.

I've begun a new, healthier diet and am looking to find a DR who can get me on antibiotics.

I cannot eat anything that's sugar free because the artificial sweetener triggers my migraines. Pinch So I've really cut out a lot but some I'm just going to reduce the amount.

I'm doing the best I can trying to care for my DH, son and all our pets but I just need a boost of something to jump start the healing again.

Thanks for reading,

Melissa
