also posted under success stories

Hello everyone,

I haven't posted here in a while, and some of you may recall that my daughter, now 19 was finally diagnosed with Lyme and babs about a year ago. Well, after a 3 month search and TOTALLY because of this website, we found a LLMD in NJ who has (knock wood) worked nothing short of a miracle.

In Jnauary, she started college...only 1 semester behind her peers. SOme of you may recall the battles I had with the high school to allow her to graduate and attend her senior prom. Those few shorty months ago, getting out of bed was a major accomplishment for her!!

Dear Lymenet community,

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your support, guidance and invaluable information. Most of all, for introducing me to the concept of a LLMD ... without which I shudder to think what her life would still be like today.

I Love you GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elle

Sometimes we wonder if all these days and nights of reaching out and trying to educate others are actually are worth it.

This says it all.

Thank you for taking time to come back and share this story. There is no sweeter music to our ears than to know this site has provided the help some folks need to get on the right road again!

Love to you and your "little girl"... always.

Thank you elle for posting you/your family's success story.

This means a lot to me and my family on our journey to wellness.

I agree with your assessment of this community and how much the info/support/guidance has helped on this difficult road.

They are an incredible bunch of people.

[bow] [group hug]

Being a relative newbie here, this success story and your coming back to share it means even more to me and DW.

Again I thank you elle, and pray for the best for you and yours all the rest of your now healthy days!!

I am so glad I could cheer everyone up!! SHe had a long haul...12 years from tick bite to diagnosis and a lot of missed childhood in between. She is NOT bitter and is living it up at college...she even makes it to her 8:30 classes, which actually blows my mind.

I am glad her success can be of inspiration to others. I musdt say there were many times I thought she would be on disability and never have much of life outside of our home.
