THE STORY:

Hello friends and community,

I am doing a fundraiser for Lyme Treatment. I was diagnosed almost a year ago and have been suffering for several years. Some of my symptoms include chronic bone and joint pain. migraines, sore throats, earaches, chills, significant weight gain, thyroid issues, hormone imbalances, memory loss, chronic fatigue, foggy brain any many more. Lyme disease has impacted my life in a major way that has left me financially ruined. I know that recovery is possible and pray for community support as I too am a loving, impactful and important part of making this world a better place. I have dedicated my life to working with eating disorders, trauma and helping those in need. I can't fully live in alignment with my purpose without further care. I want nothing but to be functioning and healed from this insidious disease.

I would have never known that a tick bite could change my life forever. I did not even know what Lyme disease was until I was diagnosed. Not only is it important for me to get better but to also spread the word through education as our children and each one of us have to be protected from this disease. I have below left come information about Lyme and a wonderful video called Under Our Skin that tells the truth about Lyme Disease. I pray that heart will open and support my cause. I know times are difficult and if I could do this by myself I would. Asking for help is hard and I know that the universe will provide what is needed. I want my life back and this is a way I am fighting for it. I am fighting through fundraising as I have to get better or this disease will kill me. I thank you all for your time.

Ten Facts about Lyme Disease

1. Lyme disease is a world-wide infectious disease and has been reported in all 50 states, 25% of the reported cases are children. Lyme disease had been found on every continent but Antarctica.

2.Typically Lyme disease is transmitted through a bite from an infected deer tick. These ticks, often the size of a poppy seed, can leave an undetectable bite.

3. Fewer than 50% of people infected get the bull’s eye rash. Some develop flu-like symptoms a week or so after becoming infected, however, many people are asymptomatic but can develop Lyme symptoms months, years or decades later.

4. Common Symptoms include: fatigue, neck stiffness or pain, jaw discomfort, muscle pain, joint aches like arthritis- typically in the knees, swollen glands, memory loss, cognitive confusion, vision problems, digestive issues, headaches and fainting.

5. The Lyme spirochete bacteria is hard to detect and hard to kill. Lyme disease is growing at epidemic proportions in the United States.

6. It is called the great imitator; looking like many other health problems (Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Bells Palsy, ADD, MS and Lupus).

7.The medical community is divided over the diagnosis and treatment guidelines. Health insurance often doesn’t cover the treatment for Chronic Lyme disease.

8. The standard and most commonly prescribed for diagnosing Lyme test is the ELISA test. This test, often not sensitive enough to detect Lyme, can produce a false negative. The more sensitive test is called the IgG and IgM Western Blots test. The preferred testing labis IGeneX Lab in Palo Alto. www.igenex.com.

9. If you suspect you have Lyme, contact a LLMD, (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor).

10. Informative websites on the disease: www.ilads.org, www.lymedisease.org, www.lymediseaseassociation.org, www.igenex.com,www.underourskin.com.
