Anyone have problems with exes or people believing you
Hi Guys, I've had the worst couple of days, well longer than that (lol) I recently got my IGEnex test back and it was positive. I have an almost 7 year old who I think I passed Lyme onto through Breastfeeding. I have spent much of the night arguing with his father (we are divorced) about whether he has Lyme, worst of all my ex is skeptical about whether I even have Lyme, the problem for me is I appear normal on the outside and in his mind that means I am not sick. I have a boyfriend who I do not live with who, although he loves me he has 2 teenagers and lives on the other side of town. The stress of arguing with my ex and worrying about my son who is showing alot of signs that my ex is passing off as growing pains, normal tummy upsets, is really exaccerbating everything. I have my son most of the time and just don't know Im going to cope when/if he gets sicker. Everything is going against me, I have some money from an inheritance but I know this will run out and if I am not getting my son treated at the same time as me I worry when he gets sicker I won't have the funds or strength to help him.
I was bitten by a tick in a Colorado Zoo in 1997 (thats what I think) I have a damn happy snap of the little b a s t a r d in my holiday album (actually the Deer not the tick) as I had no idea I was even bitten. My symptoms came on just after my son was born and of course stupid me continued to breastfeed, of course we all know those first signs of exhaustion are explained away by being a first time mum not getting much sleep.
I feel pretty hopeless and alone at the moment, the only close family I had is my brother and we had a falling out over his wife so I really have very little support. Added to this I am worried that I may have passed this disease onto my current partner (or maybe even my ex - at the moment don't feel so bad about that, thats not true) sorry I am just so emotionally r a t s h i t at the moment.
I am about to start treatment on doxy soon and am hoping the fact that this has lied dormant in my body for such a long time doesn't mean I have no hope of fighting it. As I said at the moment I appear normal on the outide, I am trying to stay positive and am hoping I will win this fight. Stay true to yourselves people and thanks so much for those who have read this, I know it was a big one. Much love.
