A woman in my support group has been battling Lyme Disease for 5 years now and her LLMD lost her 2 1/2 years ago. She was doing fine for awhile until 5 months ago. She woke up an could not feel her left leg and by the end of that month she could not find feel the entire lower half of her body and has been paralyzed and in a wheelchair ever since. Since she is in a wheel chair she lacks working and can barely even afford the internet let alone find another LLMD in her area. She is still waiting on SS/Disabilty but has been waiting for a 18 months now. The LLMDS ppl give her seem to have lost their license or are not accepting new patients. Does anyone have a Minnesota LLMD list so I can mail it to her so that she can go down the list and call all of them? please this one is desperate. She is on an O2 mask bc drs are misdiagnosing her with ALS even tho she has 5 blood tests that prove she has lyme and the only reason she had to stop treatment was because her LLMD lost her License. If anyone has an LLMD list for Minnesota could you please send it to me please? She has a neighboring state of Wisconsin also which is only 20 minutes from her. So if you have those state LLMD lists I would appreciate it if I could get those listings. Im on my whitz end. This woman is like a second mother to me and all I want for her is to at least feel better and get some relief. Id rather it be me then her to be honest with you. Please help us!

sorry I wanted to post this again for people who

cant see double spacing.

A woman in my support group has been battling

Lyme Disease for 5 years now and her LLMD lost

her 2 1/2 years ago. She was doing fine for

awhile until 5 months ago. She woke up an could

not feel her left leg and by the end of that

month she could not find feel the entire lower

half of her body and has been paralyzed and in a

wheelchair ever since. Since she is in a wheel

chair she lacks working and can barely even

afford the internet let alone find another LLMD

in her area. She is still waiting on SS/Disabilty

but has been waiting for a 18 months now. The

LLMDS ppl give her seem to have lost their

license or are not accepting new patients. Does

anyone have a Minnesota LLMD list so I can mail

it to her so that she can go down the list and

call all of them? please this one is desperate.

She is on an O2 mask bc drs are misdiagnosing her

with ALS even tho she has 5 blood tests that

prove she has lyme and the only reason she had to

stop treatment was because her LLMD lost her

License. If anyone has an LLMD list for Minnesota

could you please send it to me please? She has a

neighboring state of Wisconsin also which is only

20 minutes from her. So if you have those state

LLMD lists I would appreciate it if I could get

those listings. Im on my whitz end. This woman is

like a second mother to me and all I want for her

is to at least feel better and get some relief.

Id rather it be me then her to be honest with

you. Please help us!

I hope she finds what she needs soon.

About the format, you do not need to double space all your posts when adding white space, for future reference.

It's a lot harder to do double spacing and, for many that can also be hard to track as can solid text. No need to redo above but to save you time in the future, it may be good to know that the 3-4 line max for short paragraphs just seem to work better for tracking of eyes.

That's about 5-6 lines when composing in the smaller box.

Not ignoring any details you posted but My eyes just could not read either post above (the nystagmus shakes all the words). Still, with your headline, I got the main point. I hope the links for MN group and online support help or or her advocates to locate a good LLMD.

Keebler is right. I had trouble reading either one. It's so weird that it's that way for so many of us!!

Aubsdaddy.. I sent you a message!

PM sent.

Please break up your posts into 2-3 sentence paragraphs, as there are people on Lymenet who cannot read large blocks of text due to neurological problems from Lyme. Thanks.
