I started getting sick in 1991. I went from Dr to Dr with heart palpitations, rashes, head pressure, memory problems, body aches, internal vibrations, and much more. They just kept telling me I had panic attacks. After 15 years of getting sicker and sicker I finally get diagnosed with Lyme Disease. After 3 weeks of Doxycycline I just got worse. I found an LLMD (lyme literate MD) but have a bad reactions to antibiotics. After three years in Lyme treatment I'm not much better. I also have bulging disks in my neck. I've lost much use in my right arm. My shoulder hurts all the time. But the worst is the endless fatigue caused by the lyme. I feel like all energy has been sucked from every cell in my body. It is leading me into a bad depression. I don't think if I didn't have faith in God that I would still be here. I know that this is the path that I'm supposed to lead so I just pray for the strength to help me get through it. I have three children, two dogs, three cats, and a bunny. They keep me gong. I'd be in bed all day if it wasn't for them! Thank you for your prayers everyone from the bottom of my heart!
If you would like to find out more about Lisa, go to her myspace page.
Lisa mentioned some other prayer requests on our Truth About Lyme forum. So I thought I would add them to her note.
Jason, Lisa's husband, has had a seizure, very bad joint pain, extreme fatigue, bad sweats, lots of problems, and yet has two negative lyme tests.
Matthew , Lisa's son, has serious heart problems. He has a ventricular septal defect, which has led to other physical problems
Danielle, Lisa's daughter, had a bull's eye rash. She was diagnosed with spider bite, now two years later is developing joint pain and has bladder issues. She also has shaky and dizzy spells.
Brittany, Lisa's oldest daughter had Bartonella when she was 5. She has had a couple fainting spells but seems to be okay. Please pray that the diseases are not returning
Grandma Betty and Grandpa Allen prayers needed as they are in recovery from blood clots and both recovery from cancer
Dad & Diana, emphysema, blood disorders, prostate cancer not returning
Aunt Renee, also fighting lyme disease
Snickers and Tuffy who are both getting old I'm praying God just takes them and I don't have to make the hard decisions that Dana just had to go through!
