Where is everyone? Yes you.... [hi] [hi]

I can help out only sporadically. I am having trouble with my shoulder and need to rest it. I can't type much but answered a bunch of requests this morning.

LYMETOO is having problems with her neck and is in pain and typing makes it worse. [Eek!]

Can everyone who is able take responsibility for their state/region and answer a few posts each day? [confused] Things would go so much more smoothly that way.

I'm sure most of you have LLMD's or information you can share for those desperately needing help.

Why do we have to continually ask for help. [confused]

Are we not all in this together and is this not a Lyme Community, all of us suffering from this terrible illness?

Please help out. Please respond to requests without replies if you can. Please answer requests with only one reply. They need additional input from you, they need as much information as they can get.

Don't ask for lists. The ones in circulation are largely out-of-date and contain many names who are not LLMD's. Things change quickly in "Lymeland". Send the name of your own LLMD or one that you know to be getting results for people.

If there are no LLMD's in your state, then surely you know the closest LLMD's that people go to or a link for a good support group that can make referrals. Help out and share your knowledge.

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page and look for requests that have not been answered or have only one reply, not just the first 10 or 15 posts.

Those on the bottom go onto page two, the land of the "unanswered" and ignored!

Are we not all in this together? Are we not all part of the Lyme Community? If you are well enough to help and have information to share, please do so.

WE NEED YOUR HELP, EVERYDAY.

Thank you to the few of you who have taken the time to answer requests in "Seeking" on a regular basis. Your help is so very much appreciated.

I check every day for anyone seeking in the midwest.

I am in South Dakota so I try to cover from Montana all the way over to Wisconsin or Michigan and as far down as Kansas. I know these aren't high traffic areas (except for MN, WI and MI) but I was born and raised here, plus my doc is out in Montana, so I have more knowledge of this area vs. anywhere else

I am also in a lot of pain as of late but I will continue to at least keep checking for these areas so I can cover them.

Thanks guys. [bow]

Your help and the help of everyone is so very much appreciated. We have a few states that are being well covered by the membership and that is great. [Smile]

I know we are all suffering from something, and it makes it difficult. Just everyone try when and if you can.

Right now I need to say off the computer. Just what I did this a.m. has my shoulder in spasm for the day! [Eek!]

I have helped a lot over the summer but now I am getting ready to go back to teaching in a week. I won't have the time. I also did a lot of PM's back and forth helping people. I loved it, but I have to work as I hold the health insurance.

I feel the worst I have in many years with things all strirred up in my body so I imagine I will be resting when I get home from teaching all day.

I'll do what I can on weekends and holiday breaks.

Things are never dull. After 3 fighting Lyme, 2 are in remission. Youngest is still sick, age 22. He has new diagnosed Chiari Malformation and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.

Thanks to all who have helped. I was unable to do much of anything yesterday and we can get behind VERY quickly in Seeking.
