Melisa's Biography

My Lyme friend Melisa and I have been friends for quite a while now. We have met in person a few times including watching in the theatre Under Our Skin. Sadly, we were in separate rooms to watch this documentary. I convinced Melisa to see my own LLMD and he's working her extremely hard to get well.

Melisa is a 20 year student from North Carolina. She goes to Appalachian State. She has unique challenges as a college student. Melisa is fighting Lyme, Brucella, Babesia and Bartonella. She believes she has had these things for 12 to 14 years.

Melisa (with one S) has many symptoms, but the things that give her the most struggles are terrible night migraines, being easily tired, memory problems and the loss of muscle control. Our LLMD is fond of lots of antibiotics and supplements so Melisa is on a lot of pills. These pills that kill everything that need to be killed make Melisa grossly nauseated. She is anxiously waiting the day she can eat sugar and unhealthy foods again as a normal college student can. They are considering IV treatment in the summer time.

Melisa not only wants prayers for her to feel better, but wants other Lymies to feel better too.
As far as Melisa is aware, none of her family members have contracted these tick borne illnesses.

Please pray for my dear friend.

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!
