Hi All--

I am going to a sleep doctor Friday -

I need to have the correct spelling for Babs-
Babs is just the slang --
I need the Real name- spelled out--

I have gotten only 4 hours of sleep
in the last 15 days --

I can barely think straight --

I got in this position because the state
of texas have started a new rule

that Sleep meds proscriptions can be filled
ONLY if the doctor is a Texas doctor--

My LLMD is in California- So I am screwed-

I hate texas more and More every day--Jay--

Babs is short for Babesia. Infection with Babesia is Babesiosis. The two strains common in the US are Babesia microti and Babesia duncani.

Very sorry to hear about your lack of sleep. 4 hours in 15 days; that's horrible. I have insomnia but nothing that even approaches what you have. Good luck.

Can you not get them "over the border" in Mexico?

Maybe that is not an option, but I know when I haven't slept for days on end, I can't even see the obvious.

Good luck.

Hi All--

I found out today that LLNp S can not write
me scripts but LLMD S that she works with can write Fax or call in scripts--

I have decided that I am going to tell the sleep doctor my Complete Situation because there
is No Way that he will beleave my about
the amount of sleep I get --

I am going Fully prepared with info about Lyme being a Bio Weapon -Plum Island -
and that Lyme CT is 8 miles from Plum Island-

I SURE HOPE HE LISTENS TO ME AND THAT HE HAS
INTERNET CONNECTION IN HIS OFFICE SO I CAN SHOW HIM THE INFO --

Before this happened I was Totally symptom Free
except for the sleep problem---

In the last few days some symptoms have started up again -- but I think with sleep meds -
that I will be OK again --

Wish me Luck--Jay--

Not sure I would recommend telling him about the Plum island stuff. He may peg you as some kind of conspiracy theorist. Why not just tell him that you have been diagnosed and need medication to help you sleep? Hope you get some relief.

Hi All --

The sleep doctor went Perfect --

My 40 minute visit lasted 95 minutes--
I told him Full story -

Plum Island - Lab 257 -
How the Medical board is hassling LLMD--

He was Shocked---
the news that the US infected
Guatemalans with VD that hit the news yesterday
was perfect timing -- Jay --

Did it "go perfect" because he prescribed something for you that has worked well...

or that you feel you won him over with your conspiracy theorys? [Roll Eyes]


BTW- Ah 'bleeve' you can have a "script" filled while you are out in CA seeing your LLMD... even a 90-day one, though that won't be the case with the Class I meds like narcotics (i.e: only 30-day 'scripts' for lorazepam).

Hi All-

Went perfect because he did what I wanted
and I got help from him--

Plum island is No conspiracy theory-

If you even check into it in the slightest way
you will find it to be true-

US military has admitted to Weponizing Lyme
and other TBi --

Plum Island is 8 miles from Lyme CT --Jay--

I knew you were a brave guy, but this is amazing. You went with the Plum story to a totally non-lyme doc and got help. Blows me away.

Heck, I don't even tell my family anything about Plum Island. Not sure it was deliberate, could believe an accident happened that no one will admit. But that is another story.

I use to have a horrible insomnia problem. Not as severe as you, but I only slept 3 hours a night. I tried several sleep meds and Ambien was the only one that helped a little. I slept 4 hours a night on it.

My sleep has gotten better since I started feeling better from lyme treatment. I still wake up in the night but can usually get about 7 hours of sleep most nights.

Very interesting that you told a non LLMD about Plum Island and he actually listened!

I got lymed way before the Plum Island stuff anyway.

Groovy, is it possible for LLNP to just call your prescription into a Walgreens in California-- then transfer the prescript to a local one to fill?

Wow. Im amazed your doctor actually listened to you. Mine would have just written "crackpot" in my file and likely sent me for a psych consult. Sweet dreams!

Hi All --

Dam- the ambien is one strong med-

It did not help me with sleeping much (4 hours)
but today 50 hours after One ambiin -
I still feel DinggY --

I took Friday night - Saturday I could bearliy
walk - Sunday I I could walk but I felt
like I was Floating --

Monday Im just Stupid --
and having trouble typing

Last night on the news they had story
about Ambin Car Drivers --
they said the people drive cars and dont even remember driving or Anything else- Scary--

Like I said I went Fully Prepared -
Main points written on paper in order-
web site addresses ect -

Practiced finding Plum island on map -

I started my story back in grade school-
told him I can barely read and that I had to
take reading classes ( hours a day) even in
high school --

I had to take IQ tests in high school
because they thought I Had to be retarded -

First test I scored a 160 -- They thought
they had made some mistake so they tested
me again -- Scored a 163 this time -

I made OK grades but I never opened a book-
school was Boring --

Turns out I have perty bad dyslexia-

they did not even know what dyslexia
was back then -

I have never read a novel or Any book for fun-
I do read technical manuals but its perty hard-

I miss spelled at least half the words in this post and I spell so bad that I have to Google
my spelling because its So Bad regular
spell check dose not usually work --

Here is a example of what can work when
you are prepared-- and stick up for yourself-

Many years ago I had a problem the the state of texas -- They were Wrong -I was Right --

This went on for months -
Their attitude was Shut Up Little Man and Pay Up
then Go Away -

I dont let Anyone push me around -

So Finally I called the state and told them
that I had set up a interview with Local TV station-- and that the interview was going to
be held in there building --

They said No Way are we going consent to a interview --

Well I knew this was Exactly what
they were going to say-- (planing a head)

I told them that the interview WAS going to
take place whether they showed up or not -

I said the interview was going to be
VERY One Sided if they did not show up --

LONG Pause on the phone --
then they basically hung up --

2 weeks later I got a letter in the mail
from the state saying that a Mistake
was made and somewhat apologized to me --

In the letter was also check for a little over
$1000 for Hush Money --

The check had Zero other info on it -

I cashed it -- No Problems --

This shows that even the state dose not want
there dirty laundry aired in public --

the bigger they are the More laundry they have-


One other thing --

Always remember --

The doctor is Working For YOU --
not the other way around -

YOU are making the Payments on his house
cars and sending his kids threw school-

Show up at the office with this attitude

You will be surprised the Power You Have
-- Jay ---

Ps Sorry I got so far off doctor story--
I hope you get the point I was trying to make
