Hi All --

Well I just passed my 2700th post here on LN -

I was hoping that I would be gone
by post 2000 -
But then I got reinfected --
I sure dont like ticks --

Now I feel Great Again --

I am Symptom Free and No Pain-- AAAhhh
--- Many Months---

Here in Austin we have had No rain in 8 months
and the lake is half empty Plus
67 straight days over 100 degrees -- Ouch --

Then we got about a foot of rain in the
last month or so and the Mold count
is Higher than Frank Zappa at a concert --

Made me feel bad and made my room mate
perty sick for a while --

I Stopped taking ABX 2 months ago-
-- AAAAHhhhh ---

Overall I Feel Great -
I have been working around my house-

Catching up on 10 years of chores
that have been waiting for me --

Chores Never get tired of Waiting -

I have fixed up my shop and am
building Custom bicycles and
Robotic video camera mounts --

--- Fun --

In my spare time I am going to turn
the 32 Pounds of Empty Pill bottles I have
into to some type of -- Art Work --

I figure the Art Work will be worth
about $55,000 --

Cost of Art Supplies --

Melt bottles into a Blob with a Torch --

Wednesday Midnight I am going to do the
Full Moon Bike ride -->>>
It will be Fun -->>>>>

Why am I telling you all of this -

In about 1984 I got both Lyme and Babs --
Threw the years I went down hill Bad --

I got to the point where I figured
that I had Maybe a month or so to live-

I had No Idea that a person could feel
this Bad and Still be Alive --

Got to the point I was in bed 24 X 7 -

Then I saw a TV show about a lady
who had Lyme -Showed a picture of
a Lyme Bullseye Just Like the one
I had on my leg in 1984 -

So I Finally Know what is Wrong with Me --

I was LUCKY that a LLMD lived in Austin --
Took about 8 months to get first visit -
I barely made it --

After the exam I knew I had Both lyme and Babs -
Tests came back IND from Igenx --


Started Treatment and started feeling better

Then a few weeks later I started Herxing
about 6 months solid -

Then I felt slightly better for a few days

Bam the Herx from Hell Started and went
on over 14 months --

But then One Day I felt the Perty Good -
It lasted Only a Brief Moment --

Was First Time I had felt good in
20 Long Years -

That Day I Knew that I was going
to get Threw this Nightmare --

Treatment took a LONG Time --
It was Painful and Definitely No Fun --

There where Many times that I wanted to
Hang myself and get it over --

These Bugs are Tuff and Dont Give Up Easy-
It is a War -

I had to make up my Mind that
I am Going to Win --
-- You Do Too --

With Every Pill I took I Knew I was
One Pill Closer to the End --

You CAN and Will Get Better --

I Have - Jay --->>

Great news! You give me hope.
While watching your funny link, I surfed to this one. Not so funny. Read the comments and leave one of your own.

Well, I also was pitching my empty pill bottles in a grocery bag, until there were too many to keep anymore. But if I still had them, would send them to you for artwork. Maybe if everyone did that, groovy could do a gigantic sculpture that could be used at IDSA meetings, etc.

Enjoyed the video

am from the south myself

do you know Burning Man out in the desert?

Was thinking we could send you all our old medicine bottles, you could make a big sculpture with them, then burn it down baby! Video your event to teh rest of us.

Bonus - not many ticks in the desert
