MDJunction - People Helping People

MDJunction to me

zooker"Hey I'm zooker,

I'm a single father of two, a survivor of sexual abuse, bipolar, PTSD and severe back pain from car accidents.

My goal on this forum will be to help the people that reach out, lend an ear when needed and offer my life experiences as advice. I have loved, I have lost and I am still here.

My abuse was between the age of 9 and 13 and my abuser was close to our family, a lot of people would say that she was teaching me life skills but after years of fighting with the trauma I have learned that I am here for a reason and trying to help others find they way is the best treatment I got.

When I was diagnosed (officially) with bipolar I started to research and found MDJunction and it's helped me a lot. I am on that forum every day and will devote more time to this one and try to get people the help they need.

Feel free to ask me a question on the site or through PM and I will be as open and honest as I possibly can.

Remember that you are not what the abuser made are stronger than that so stand up and take what is yours.

yours truly,

" (zooker)

A little about me: I have had symptoms since 2003. They came and went and came again... they changed a lot and I was always thought of as psychosomatic by my docs, family and close friends. I was "dramatic".

I finally was having more severe symptoms this past year that made me look at my medical history and try to find a link.

I randomly watched Under Our Skin one day on netflix and said, AH HA! That's me!!! lol My husband thought I was crazy and said, "Oh dear Lord, please don't tell me you think you have that, too!" So I shooed it under the rug and moved on with life.

Well then my symptoms got worse again, and I read more about Lyme online. I looked up symptoms and what to ask the doc.

So one day, my mother in law took me to the doc because I had diarrhea for weeks, and I would explode (sorry if TMI) every time I ate. The doc told me it was IBS... Well she didn't even care to look at any of my other symptoms. She said "go to a therapist for anxiety."

I asked her to do a Western Blot (before I knew anything about the false-negatives). It came back 1 band positive, but only like 5 were tested.

Then I went to a different doc to see what he thought of my medical history and to see if there was a link. He diagnosed my with Somatization Disorder (psychosomatic).

I knew that there was something to the one positive band, so I went to a LLMD in Seattle and was clinically diagnosed. I started treatment: doxy and tindamax as well as some other supplements. I took another western blot and wham bam thank you ma'am, POSITIVE according to the CDC! Sooooo.......... I'm a Lymie now.

a HugDear members,

I regret to inform you that the member "Creidim" was all a hoax. Please see the post about it in the General forum. If you are in contact with any of Creidim's "family" members - please stop all communication and block that person. This is a very sad day for us in the Lyme Group. I am sorry for those of you who mourned this person. Your pain was REAL. Please know the leaders are here if you need us. blessings, purple
