Hello everyone... Writing from treatment here, and it's a pretty rough day all around, emotionally and physically. I stress a lot over money which is why it hit's me so hard emotionally on me which makes me a lot sicker. I've got quiet the headache... Anyway today at treatment we did a little experimentation on my jaw pain with a steroid and I broke out and had a terrible reaction and was scratching all over the place. This week I am finally off of the Argentyn23 which kills the bacteria and disease in my blood. Everyone says I look great but it sucks to hear that because on the inside I am hurting so back. I have an IV drip "Phos" that cleanse my liver and the bad cells that the other disease killers send through. Then I am going to get H2O2 because I've had a terrible cold I contracted this week. Anyways, I have $100 to my name, and a desperate for funds to keep me in a hotel that is only $40 per night. So if 4 people donated $10.00 each every day, they would keep me alive and stress free, well for the most part... Otherwise at treatment I am running about $700.00 a day average because of the Argentyn. Because of all of your help and donations I've been able to stay in treatment and fed! Thank you all for your blessings and prayers.

Hi everyone,

I've been really tired lately from treatment, but I am trying to keep my spirits high. This week, the clinic has switched my treatment to Argentyn 23 instead of the painful pushes I've been receiving. The goal is to try and help my jaw and face.

The cost, however, is higher. It's $1 per mL, and I am currently on schedule for $1400 per week (This is 480ml 3x). The Argentyn 23 is coloittal silver that acts as an antibiotic. In turn it kills the disease and the end result is much better. I don't feel nearly as sick.

I would be so incredibly appreciative if you could pass this message along. Lyme is really a terrible disease; besides my regaining of health, awareness should be a result. If you have 5, 10 or 15 dollars to donate, it would help me reach my goal and get better!

Love,
Ali

I thought I should post an update with more information on my treatment. Since October right after my sisters wedding, I was admitted in Sierra Integrative Medical Center. Every day, I would come in and get started on my normal routine: getting IV access, which I hate and would often make me pass out. TO prevent me passing out I was moved into the Critical Care Room with Charlie, the best medic in the entire world. He takes care of me and always makes me feel better especially since a lot of the time I am very much alone going through this. So every day Charlie gives me to IV's, one which is a normal saline solution, one is a Ringer, that has a lot of electrolytes that my body is missing, then he gives me and IV of Phos, which cleanses my liver, and the 1 hour after that I get a glyoxal butt shot (which hurts really really really bad) followed by the "Push" which is given to me in my IV and makes me react very violently. So almost every day since October I have had terrible reactions to this Push, giving me temps of up to 105 degrees and they make my jaw have the worst pain I've ever experienced. During these reactions I have to stay in the Critical Care room with Charlie because I have no one in my personal life that can take care of me when I'm going through these reactions. I have had about 50 of them and they have all been bad and I am very blessed to have Charlie to take care of me.

Since I have had 50 pushes, which double of when most clients are cured, yesterday Charlie, myself and Dr Fong and think I still have a way to go, also based on some of the symptoms that I am still having, such as my jaw pain that is worsening instead of getting better and brain fog that should have gone away. The doctor says that sometimes this happens with patients that have had the disease for longer than they realize it and it burrows into the tissues really bad and we have to find the ones that are hidden. We decided that we might need to try to take another route to make me better which is, Argentyn23 which is a Colloidal Silver that acts like an antibiotic without all of the side effects that I've been dealing with. The downside: I have to spend a lot more time in the clinic, some IV's take up to 10 hours a day and it is a lot more expensive than the route I was taking before. The good news is that it is a lot less painful and the pain is spread out over that 10 hours of IV instead of getting it all at once with the push. More bad news is that I will probably be in treatment for another 2 or 3 more months and its pretty stressful because I hope I will still have my job when I am done.

Another huge issue that we are hoping to fix is my extreme pain that I have in my jaw. We are trying other things and remedies for that. I tried to see another doctor for that but he was too expensive. I will try to post on here more often with my progress. Unfortunately I will need to because the Argentyn is much more expensive than the treatment that we were using previously. I want to let everyone know we are not back tracking either and we are absolutely moving forward.... I was just a lot sicker than I thought I was.

Thank you and love you all... xoxox

Hello friends!  I thought I was going to be able to finish my treatment out of my own pocket but unfortunately I haven't been well enough to go back to work like I thought I would be able to so I am asking for your help.  The past few days have been pretty eye opening for me financially (bank account and treatment $ both hit 0) and socially.  For those of you who don't know, I have been in treatment for Lyme disease the past 5 weeks and am on the road to recovery.  Many of my symptoms have cleared but a lot of my psychological symptoms and brain fog have not, which Is what is really keeping me from jumping right back into work.  I took out a loan to pay for the first half of treatment and will need to start paying it back soon and I also have $800-$1000 in home care per month that is starting now and still have 2-4 days of treatment per week to do but I am broke so I don't know if I will be able to finish it!  You can email me alitess.18@gmail.com if you have any questions about Lyme disease and my symptoms  more than happy to answer them.  I will continue to update this and please share with your friends.  I do not like to ask for money and this is extremely humbling  for me so any support and guidance is much appreciative.  Love you all!
