Hi! This is Christina, mod of dailyautumn. Please forgive this interruption, but I need some help.
I have just returned from five weeks of daily IV treatment for infections of Lyme disease, Bartonella and Protozoa Rheumatica, as well as severe mold toxicosis. In my 19 years of life I have never been really “healthy” but it really declined when I contracted Lyme about four years ago. Mold poisoning had already damaged my body and shut down my immune system, similar to AIDS, so I was unable to fight the infection. There were ups and downs over the next few years, but at the beginning of 2013 my health took a sharp decline. Severely underweight, in constant pain, horribly brain-fogged, fatigued, and almost too weak to function. I have been homebound for a long time, unable to hang out with friends much less do activities I love like horseback riding, nature photography, camping, swimming, etc.
Thank goodness that after years of misdiagnoses, poor treatment and terrible doctors, I was able to find a fantastic doctor and truly believe this is where I need to be to recover. I finally have a chance at being healthy and having a normal life.
I plan to return to the clinic in January to finish treatment, which will probably take at least seven weeks. Besides the cost of treatment there are expensive medicines, supplements and labs to do every week plus daily living expenses like food, gas and lodging. This is where you can help!
