Our next featured Lymie is in her late 50's. Katherine M lives in Arizona and has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease (along with co-infections). Back in October of 2001, Katherine became too sick to continue to work, do household chores, walk and read. Katherine was finally diagnosed with Lyme Disease in 2003 and began treatment.
Katherine's largest symptom are cognitive. She can not sit upright or be on her feet longer than 5 to 20 minutes. She needs lots of downtime and often types lying down with the keyboard on her legs. Katherine is in a forced vegetative state from about 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon. She isn't sleeping. She just is there. She has lost her ability to multi-task, read novels, cook dinner and tires easily. Katherine has been taking Amoxicillian & Biaxin for several months now.
Katherine needs to be able to move closer to her LLMD and a primary care physician who will prescribe her the medications and testing that she needs. She is in need of insurance to provide as much as possible since she doesn't have the funds to pay out of pocket. She needs prayers to know where to move as well as approval from the Section 8 Housing to provide her a quiet and safe place to live. Prayers for funding for both housing and for treatment are needed as well. Once Katherine finds a new place to live she's hoping to find help with packing, moving and unpacking. So please pray that God sends her people to assist her with these needs.
She is hoping that she will be approved for workman's compensation and they will provide the treatment she needs to regain her health as well as funds to move closer to her LLMD. Katherine has been blessed by the donation of two power chairs. One is for when she can not hold herself upright. She's also been blessed with a service dog, SSI and a safe, quiet, clean place to live. She is hoping that section 8 housing will be providing help with household chores twice a month starting this month.
Katherine is slowly seeing improvements, but feels that a lack of funds is causing it to take so long. She is very thankful for the medications and supplements that have been provided. She is thankful for everyone thoughts & prayers and hopes this will help people know how to pray.
