Remember your last flu?Remember how achy, weak, and feverish you felt?Remember how fast it put you to bed? Remember how hard it was to do anything for yourself, so your family brought you chicken soup and kept you company? Remember how kind and caring they were during your 5 days of suffering?Remember how friends called you up to say hi and cheer you up? The flu really stinks and people UNDERSTAND!
IMAGINE it becoming NEVERENDING AND WORSE, Yet can’t find a diagnoses, and then misdiagnosis! Given (injected, non-removable) medications that cripple you because they can’t figure out what is wrong.
Imagine other symptoms on top of that flu. To name a few, no ability to get refreshing curative sleep, nerve pain AND joint pain, nerve pain feel like a 3rd degree burn almost all over waist down (for me), headaches, permanent medical damage (thanks to docs, do no harm, huh)!
Imagine no doctor willing to diagnose you because the symptoms are so general and complicated.
Imagine once after YEARS of trying getting Diagnosed and find out that the doctors know nothing about the diagnosis: Lyme Disease!
Imagine not seeing a time when you will ever feel better, get out of pain, and walk or work again, because no one knows anything or cares to learn.
Imagine the “LLMDs” are now attracting thieves and con-men who don’t want to help but just get RICH, because such a shortage of REAL Lyme Literate MDs (LLMDs), if any can be called an expert?
Imagine it affecting you day after day turning into year after year (13 yrs my sickest).
Your family will have to go back to work and you end up alone, all the time. Can’t fault them. They have their lives.
Imagine how much loss that ill person feels not being able to engage with anyone! And now they feel you are “depressing” and you feel unwanted and abandoned.
Imagine how your friends forget about you because you can’t ever DO anything fun with them anymore.
Imagine nobody believes you could stay that sick for so long, but not look sick.
THINK how lucky you are, if you are only having to IMAGINE???
