Rickys lyme disease treatment

Five years ago i became suddenly ill. Up until that point i was healthy for most of my life. I was under sever stress with work, working through tough marriage issues and simply stretching myself to far. My immune system crashed and lyme took over my body . Over the next three years i saw 55 doctors and exausted my life savings. I only recently received my diagnosis 2 months ago . I had to shut down my buisness and have not worked in three years . Lyme is very difficult to treat and is a vicious and complex disease. Im slowly losing my ability to think and funtion physically . I am seeking to go to India for stem cell treatment . I have two freinds who were sucessfully healed after 15 years of struggling with this disease. I have raised some money and my family has done as much as they can . Im trying to sell our house that we built in Barbados but the market is down . If i can get treatment i can work again and hopefully keep our home . I have two children , one of which is on a partial scholarship thank god. My son is trying to find work but is also struggling to make ends meet . From the age of 16 i left school and went to work . I have never in my life asked for money so this is not easy . I ve always been able to take care of myself and my family so this is extremely difficult .I just need to get back on my feet . I cant tell you the pain it has caused my family and my marriage. It has truly humbled me to my soul , which is a good thing. Sometimes we live to large . We get spoilt and jaded. This has truly been a scourging of the man i use to be . I have to believe that somewhere in this pain is a joyful ending . If you can help in any way i would be thanful . Thank you and God bless you all .
