So... as many of you know, I have had HORRIBLE chest pains and My blood pressure was 153/118 when I got sick.
Goodnews is that I can finally say after starting antiboitics that these first 3 weeks of treatment, my chest pain is going away:)
AND my blood pressure is doing well. 139/80.
What a life for a 20 yr old!
My bartonella marks on the inside of my legs started spreading once treatment started, but now are starting to fade.
Today, is a great day!
I was skeptical of my LLND at first, just because since I got sick this last year, I have had a hard time trusting docs because none of them believed I was sick, Even when I was CDC positve for Lyme and Postive for Ehirlchia and I now have Bart.
I am so thankful for my LLND.
Now I just want the horrible shin and feet pain to just go away!!!!
Also, I got a car today so I can get to school during the winter since my husband and I only had one car. He works in the city next to us so our schedules wouldnt work out with sharing just one car.
The parking at my university is huge, and turns out at the DMV they are letting me get a disablity sticker since I have Lyme Disease. The lady there knew all about Lyme and said that I defintley should get one!
I showed her my Doctor note from my LLND that i was giving to my university right after getting my plates at the DMV (how ironic). I was so shocked. She said that just have my doctor sign something and that I would have the tag for my car so I can park close on campus.
She was just so helpful, and I was just thankful that I can get this tag for my car so I can park closer on campus this year. These shin splint pain and knee pain is just getting unbareable sometimes.

Your campus may require a separate tag from them to allow you to park in handicapped spots on campus.
If you tell them you have two cars, you can get a hanging tag and then move it to any car that you use or ride in, instead of a permanent plate attached to the car. The campus might have a similar arrangement.
I have heard that some people have had difficulty obtaining these, so I'm glad you were able to get one without trouble.
