On day 12 of Lyme Disease Awareness Month, I come to you with a different agenda. This agenda is to help a great friend of mine. We met through circumstances of Lyme Disease. Although we hate we have the disease, we love that it has meshed our lives together and we will be life long friends.
My friend --- Sarah --- I've mentioned her before when I went to her High School Graduation. When I first "met" Sarah, it was in a huge Face Book Lyme Group. She began to talk to me and she was quite young so I asked her to get her Mom's permission before talking with me. Her Mom was thrilled because I was giving her nutritional recommendations and suggestions what things to try to eat. We became fast friends and when we visited her in South Carolina her family welcomed us with open arms and we became friends for life.
Sarah has been sick for some time, not only with Lyme, but she was born with Chiari Malformation. Sarah has been having a lot of complications and in order to help her a surgeon wants her to go all the way from South Carolina to Colorado to have an operation. She must stay in Colorado for a month. She never asks for anything, but she needs our help and a friend of ours has set up a fundraiser for Sarah so that she can have this much needed operation.
Donate if you can, but also please pass the word about my friend to others so they can have the opportunity to donate to my precious friend Sarah. Sarah, I love you girl
Please help me with upcoming treatment costs. In addition, a portion will also go to raise Lyme Awareness in North Carolina. We have two available designs and two available sizes. Please be sure to leave your shipping address with your payment and a working email address for me to contact you if there is a problem with your order.
Living the Lyme Life
The purpose of Living the Lyme Life is to educate others on tick borne illness, inform others of what's going on in my life and inspire others to use the skills they have to make the situation they are in a little easier.

I am living my life. I've treated Lyme, Bartonella, Candida and Heavy Metal Poisoning. My symptoms were drastically improved after 2 years of treatment. I did well for a year or two and then started having a backslide in August of 2011. I've been seeing my doctor since March 1 2007.
I have severe D defiency, but my Iron levels are now normal (after Iron infusions). I'm treating with oral antibiotics currently for Lyme, Bartonella and Babesia. I'm living life as full as I can with the skills that I have and the love I receive.
My recent labs showed a very weak immune system and low Cortisol. So we're fighting to bring that back up. Some therapies I'm using are IV Vitamin C, HBOT treatments and herbal remedies plus yeast fighting medicines along with medicines to boost cortisol levels.
I've not used the HBOT in a while, but I found it helpful. I'm on a load of oral antibiotics again because the herbal remedies alone were not effective enough.
Living life as full as I can with the skills that I have and the love I receive!

I've gotten wind over the last few weeks that some are having trouble accessing my blog at times. This is particularly the case with those that are using Internet Explorer. Try accessing it using a different browser or your google reader. Or keep refreshing. I use FireFox as my browser. I hope this helps.
