Please help Adam fight Lyme Disease

Hey!

My name's Adam and I've been suffering from Chronic Lyme Disease for the last 7 years after getting bitten by a tick whilst living in Southampton. As it wasn’t recognised and treated with promptly with antibiotics by my GP, the infection spread like wild across my body, resulting in a series of unpleasant and ongoing symptoms, such as constant migratory muscle pain, tingling and numbness in the extremities, drenching night sweats, morning chills, low energy, crushing migraines and cognitive dysfunction, which have all limited my ability to live really.

I received several diagnoses over the years, including CFS/Fibro as the NHS failed to associate my symptoms with a tick bite. 

I've been treated for this under the care of a leading specialist in America. Unfortunately I had to stop due to lack of funds, and as a result, my health declined again, as I wasn't on treatment long enough. Tough eh?

Those who know me will know how profound the impact has been on my everyday life. 



There is a clinic in London that treats this disease and are getting pretty good results, particularly as they are using a new drug which has performed extremely well in research trials already. It seems I could be a candidate, and this could have a very positive impact upon my quality of life.  

I can't really work much at the moment due to the severity of the condition, but if you’d like to help me fight this condition and gain a more functional life then your support would be appreciated and if you feel able to contribute in some way, either by donating toward my treatment costs or just by sharing my story, then that could make a real difference to my situation.

A £10 donation can get me some of the anti inflammatory drugs I'll need. I need to raise £10k to see this treatment through. If you could help in some way I’d be forever grateful. 


Thank you, 

Adam
