I need your help to treat Lyme disease, co-infections, ME/CFS & mold exposure. In high school I had a bad case of mono. Over the years I have had recurring mono like bouts where I would be weak for days & forced to stay in bed. In the early 90's after hiking all day I presented with a bulls eye rash along with horrific panic attacks, anxiety & insomnia. These symptoms were all new to me & followed by flu like symptoms. My anxiety was so crippling I sought psychiatric help. I had no idea you could get Lyme disease in CA at the time. During parts of my Lyme journey I did ask for testing & was given unreliable testing & told I did not have Lyme disease. Finally in 2006 I was given Igenex testing, & I was finally diagnosed. I started treating with Lyme literate MDs and Naturopaths. 99% of my treatment was paid for by me & was paid for out of pocket. Lyme treatment is very costly. I had bad mold exposure in 2003 & have not been able to work since then. My savings are almost gone & so far I have not been awarded disability. I do not have medical insurance. I have not seen an MD in over two years & need some badly needed blood work including a kidney & liver panel. I have been taking herbs & am running out of money to live on so have not been buying all the herbs & supplements I need nor have I been able to afford other Lyme treatment that could really help me. With your help & support I can start treating again. My parents are dead, I don't have a husband & I have been doing this alone for far too long. I hate to ask people for help but at this point I do need your help & it would be would be greatly appreciated. My rented apartment has been invaded by possible rodent mites from the garage below me. It is not my garage & I had no idea there were rodents living in the cabinets. I am being bitten by mites daily & am at the end of my tether. Mites carry the same diseases ticks do. I am living below the poverty level after spending thousands of dollars on MDs & trying to get well. I hate to whine but right now I can no longer do this alone. I need help. I try to stay positive & not complain but right now my life is pretty miserable. Besides needing money for treatment I need money for herbs & supplements & too keep my head above water. Thank you for listening & thank you for your help & support. If you do not have money to donate please share my fundraiser on your facebook wall.
