Treatment for my Lyme Disease

AN UPDATE! I’m still seeing some of my doctors, but I haven’t been able to afford any kinds of treatment. It’s going on 8 months now, a lot of my symptoms are coming back stronger than ever, and I have to go back to work. There’s a new medication to treat Lyme and hopefully put it into remission or get rid of it. However it needs to be closely monitored. So I need to be able to see one of my doctors once a month. He’s one of the best Lyme docs. It’s $500 MINIMUM every time I see him (no he’s not covered by insurance) and I have to be on the treatment for a minimum of 6 months. Plus the medication itself isn’t covered either and it’s $150 a month. I’m trying to raise money for this new treatment that could possible help be my cure all. Thank you for reading ❤️ and thank you all to who have donated, shared and privately donated. It’s helped me so much.
My name is Jessica Baus, I’m 24 years old and I have been diagnosed with Lyme disease. I have been a nanny for 5 years, and I was planning on going to school this spring but my plans have changed. I have to take care of my health.

August 2017 I started getting Migraines and dizziness, that lasted 3 months. I received an MRI of my brain, lots of blood tests. Everything came back normal. Months and months went by suffering. I got tested for Lyme and came back positive. I gathered money and started treatment for this disease, I had no idea what this disease does to people. Being officially diagnosed December 2017.

I Fortunately, I caught this early. With Lyme, it causes severe joint pain, migraines, chronic dizziness, exhaustion and nausea, to name a few of the symptoms. Neurological symptoms are even worse, high anxiety, depression, paranoia.. Some days, it’s difficult to get out of bed because the pain and dizziness are so bad. I have been now diagnosed with Neruo Lyme as of March 2018.

Treatment plan is a minimum of 12 months, and could be up to 24 months before I feel normal again. I’ve been on my first set of antibiotics, different herbs and supplements. I feel like I’m getting labs done constantly. The bills are adding up rapidly. I’m starting to drown in this because this is a disease I can’t afford. These next few months will be the hardest on me physically and financially treatment and doctors visits, medications and supplements. I’m putting my pride aside and asking for help, because I can’t do this alone anymore. It’s only been 5 months into treating this disease and I’ve spent well over $7,000 in seeing different doctors, labs, medications, treatments and supplements

It’s difficult to go out now, The things I used to love doing, I can’t anymore. This is why I’m reaching out for help. Please donate if you have the means. If not, please share this. Thank you for reading this and helping me through this❤️
