Shadow M's Biography

Shadow M. is a 42 year old single mother of two living in Southern California. Shadow was born and raised in Iran and moved to the United States at the age of 16. After she finished High School here, she got her Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Math in 1992. She was married the same year. She got a job working as a software engineer. While she was working at HP, she had her first daughter. In 1997, Shadow went back to school for pre-med and received her Masters in Physiology in 2001. She started Medical school after.

Shadow has Lyme Disease, Babesia, Mycoplasma, Ebstein Barr Virus, HHV6, CMV, West Nile and another co-infection bacteria. All of these things give her severe fatigue, muscle weakness, muscle stiffness and pain, joint pain and swelling. She also has brain fog, headaches, nausea, sleep disturbances and depression. Shadow also struggles with migrating pains, panic attacks, loss of balance, mood swings, heart palpitations, air hunger, blurred vision and suicidal thoughts.

Shadow is very thankful that she doesn't have any family members with Lyme Disease. She really needs prayers for positive thoughts and energy. Her blog website is http://www.mylymediseasestory.blogspot.com/

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!
