I have been unwell for the past 6 years with chronic Lyme disease after getting bitten by a tick. Those six years have been the most challenging of my life. It infected me with multiple other infections that cause many different symptoms. The disease has spread through my body without treatment an is affecting my life dramatically, the condition is continuing to worsen without any form of treatment. However, even though many others have given up on me, I have not given up on myself.
My body is toxic and struggling with removing the amount of bacteria it’s trying to fight. Functional diagnostic testing has shown that my liver enzymes Have become extremely elevated. My AST was 9x above standard and other results showed cause for concern. My practitioner said it was the highest results they had ever seen, the worry on their face was scary. I have been from doctor to doctor just trying to find help. I get a lot of pain in my right side an it is often visibly swollen.
I struggle to walk now due to fatigue (a big understatement) an have difficulties with my heart for days after exertion. The more time I wait the more damage that is done, this is a big worry an that worry furthers the rate of my decline. Some nights my symptoms are so bad I’m frightened to go to sleep.
It gives me severe neurological issues. I have memory issues and I do not remember my past, photos of me feel like some one else’s life. It makes life feel meaningless when you forget everything you have done.
I can not focus my eyes an get visual an auditory distortions as it effects my brain and nerves in my eyes. My brain will often feel like it is on fire as it gets inflamed. At these times I can’t be around noise or lights as its painful. I want to experience life and create amazing memories! I can accept that my past can not be changed but I do not accept that my future will be the same.
I am losing weight very quickly,I feel like a shell of my former self. I’m now 8 stone. I have stomach pains from eating food and allergies also. My throat swells an that causes me to be fearful any time I eat, I am still waiting to see an immunologist about this. I want to be able to enjoy my food and every other part of life. At the moment I can only watch others live an wonder if I will ever get the chance.
I have spasms throughout my body, which keeps me awake at night and is very uncomfortable. The bacteria affects the nervous system. This also causes a lot of psychiatric type symptoms, but I can’t do anything but watch it happen so its hard to feel like im losing myself. It’s frightening to feel so lost but be so determined to do something yet not have that option. That’s why I would be so grateful to anyone who can help me move forward!
It’s hard for me to say all this because I don’t want people to know what’s really happening. I only ask for help when I really need it and this is difficult for me to do. I now want to have my health back, I want to be able to live again. But without the correct treatment and support I can’t do this.
I have tried many treatments in the past an gone down nearly every avenue of medicine out there. I want to be well so badly I will do anything to be healthy again.
I believe and have hope that there are people out there like you who will help me to overcome this disease. I currently do not know where I will end up without and thats is a very scary feeling. because all I want in life is my health, everything else has become secondary and unimportant. It has taken my life away from me and it’s an awful feeling watching your body deteriorate so rapidly.
I hope to go to America to the Jemsek clinic who specialise in treating Lyme disease with a structured antibiotic protocol. It is one of the leading clinics for the condition. The clinic has helped thousands of others overcome this illness and I have faith the same can happen for me. With your help I can have my life back and be a inspiration to others to know that no matter how bad it gets there are people who do care and that you can overcome anything. I want to turn my challenges into wisdom to help others. with your help I can help so many others. lets make this reality!
I appreciate any donate you can give to help me get my life back and to live a full life. Thank you so much!
