Amy's Biography

Amy, also known as Amyloo from California, has been a member of our forum for the last 6 months. Amy is a Lyme Disease fighter and also struggles with the co-infections of Bartonella, Babesia and Ehrlichiosis. Amy has been sick the last four years.

Amy uses a wheelchair for weeks at a time, but has not been "confined" to one in a while. She uses it every now and then for assistance, but knows that it could happen again. She has horrid pain and feels as if she has toxic blood. She feels like she's just being poisoned and sick inside all the time. Amy currently has a PICC line (as most of us know is a peripheral IV inserted into a vein in the arm that goes straight to the heart) to give her the medication Rocephin. However the herx reaction she had was so great, they stopped her medication for a respite of a week.

Amy has a 13 year old daughter who lives with Type 1 Diabetes and is very brittle. Her daughter rides a roller coaster of blood sugar highs and lows and yet remains on the honor roll. Amy is extremely proud of her. Amy's daughter needs a healthy mom, but Lyme has taken that away.

Amy feels blessed that she is Lymie of the Week and wants to say "God Bless" to everyone that prays for her this week.

My photo
I am living my life. I've treated Lyme, Bartonella, Candida and Heavy Metal Poisoning. My symptoms were drastically improved after 2 years of treatment. I did well for a year or two and then started having a backslide in August of 2011. I've been seeing my doctor since March 1 2007. I have severe D defiency, but my Iron levels are now normal (after Iron infusions). I'm treating with oral antibiotics currently for Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia. I'm living life as full as I can with the skills that I have and the love I receive. My recent labs showed a very weak immune system and low Cortisol. So we're fighting to bring that back up. Some therapies I'm using are IV Vitamin C, HBOT treatments and herbal remedies plus yeast fighting medicines along with medicines to boost cortisol levels. I've not used the HBOT in a while, but I found it helpful. I'm on a load of oral antibiotics again because the herbal remedies alone were not effective enough. Living life as full as I can with the skills that I have and the love I receive!
