I was very recently diagnosed with Lyme disease after 5 years of telling the doctors that something wasn’t right with my health. I am 21 and I was halfway through my Junior year in college as a counseling major. The Lyme has greatly affected my cognitive function and I had to withdrawal from the semester. It has caused other physical problems like extreme fatigue, headaches, backaches, neck aches, aching muscles, etc. The cognitive problems it has caused have been the most depressing though. My doctor is a very caring doctor, but I am in Florida and he is very uneducated about Lyme and its treatments. I really need to see a LLMD, but I have had to greatly reduce my hours at work, my parents are looking at retirement, and all the money I had in savings has already gone to the cost of college. Our vehicle is old and has many problems and will need replacing soon. We are looking at a doctor in Atlanta, GA, but that is about a 5 hour drive from us. I need treatment quickly to stop this Lyme, but we just can’t afford it right now. If you can’t help financially then your prayers are also greatly appreciated. We know God will make a way where there seems to be no way!
I have asked that my family members take whatever they were planning on spending on me for Christmas and put it toward getting me treatment. All I want for Christmas is to know that I’m on the path to recovery!
