Re: Got my bloodwork at LLMD yesterday
Thank you for your caring words. It is unbeleivable what we have to go through to get treatment. I think that my husband thought that I was exaggerating about the whole thing and just wanted my son and I to see 2 of the best LLMD's in the country. This was not the case, my son's LLMD is the only pediatric LLMD, and the closest reg. LLMD we have is in Louisiana and has a 4-5 month waiting list, because the LLMD's left Texas because of threats. Now that my husband has been diagnosed he is realizing that I wasn't wasting out money going to CT, we had no other choice.
I am sorry that you have Lyme, but so glad that you live close to LLMD's that can treat you, and that you have the ablilty to handle the large upfront fees that come with treating this disease. My husbands grandfather died a few years ago and left his estate to my MIL (he owned a vinyard in Naugatuck) we got a vintage bottle of wine out of it. She spends this money on trips, cruises, plastic surgery, fake hair, spa treatments, etc. And doesn't help us out, she won't even go to the grocery store for me. Maybe once she finds out that her son has Lyme too, that will change, but I don't think he will tell her, because he does not want anyone to know. I think it will only make her hate me worse, she already feels I ruined his life by being sick and putting him in debt, now if she thinks I made her son sick it will be worse. i hope that Dr. F. turns out ot be an excellent LLMD for you, and that you get better, this board is such a godsend for everyone. Hopefully someday soon us Lymies will be treated properly instead of everyone trying to sweep us under the rug. Sarah
