Hello. I'm from Massachusetts. Went to a LLMD for the very first time yesterday with my boyfriend (who helped me get in, such an amazing man, he is on this forum as well)

Wont know any test results until my follow up on June 5, unfortunately. She redid my my agene cd57, ANA, mycoplasmic pneumonia, HH6, EBV, CMV, babesia, bartenella, Immunoblot.

I am currently on a strict no sugzr, no dairy and gluten free diet.

ALOT has gone on. It's overwhelming. I'm tired. I'm burnt out. I am 34 and a lot of this cooky stuff started around middle school in my early teen years. I will leave this intro to that.

Any questions, comments and or suggestions please feel free to reach out to me to discuss further, I appreciate and look forward it! Thank you [Smile]

(breaking up the post for easier reading for many here)

Welcome to Lymenet Kristyn
We are all in this together 💚

Tip;
Please utilize lymenet's 'search' function located in the middle of the top page, under 'Create a Poll'. Such valuable info posted by fellow Lyme patient's own experiences dealing with this debilitating disease. And Lymenet is always open, we never close. (Insomnia is huge with this community)

Hi - welcome to Lymenet, on this, our May Lyme Disease World Awareness Day!

I broke up your post - it's easier for many here to just read a couple lines at a time.

Glad you figured it out - we hear you on how tiring it's been to go from teen years to now.

The good news is, you'll have a chance with your LLMD to figure out how to treat, and then you'll gradually start to feel better.

In the meantime, I echo what Bonnie is saying here - you can look up any questions you have by typing a word or phrase into the Search function bar, and archived threads will come up. Just know we're all different re what we have and what works for us.

You can find your state support groups listed with Support Groups at the upper left. I strongly suggest you go to some group/groups. They can help you orient.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/MassachusettsLyme/info

Maybe they can help. They would know better about MA.

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups info):
http://whatislyme.com/lyme-and-massachusetts/

http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Massachusetts/

Read the books written by the top LLMD, Dr. H, titled, "Why Can't I Get Better?" and "How Can I Get Better?". They are an excellent source of information.

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. View "Under Our Skin" and "Under Our Skin2: Emergence" DVDs. Check your local library or buy them used online.
