like I can make the kids sick if they visit etc..
Saliva/blood etc.

But now I was just given the idea that if we're hanging out and a mosquito bites me and then it could bite one of the girls or anybody and give it to them


One doctor wouldn't say or write that it can not be caught by being around me

with a whole lot of other verbage.
I just now heard this and am ,so upset.

It would be like never seeing the kids

I know I need to explain this better,,I just can't type it now.

The point is not only family coming up with these "COULD HAPPEN"


one of the doc's.,wouldn't say that it couldn't

I need proof,//I have CDC and Elsa, ,but the just in cases are coming up..

I got this diagnoses in Aug, and it never occured to me about the possibility that short of blood tranfusion I could get someone sick,,

I guess he's thinking a bite could be a mini blood transfusion,

What could possibly be the chance of the same bug of whatever kind bitting another person around you ..
Don't they eat and leave??

My heart can't even stand thinking about this

They or he is using your sickness as an excuse. That's all there is to it.

You need to move on. These people are cruel and selfish and nothing you can say is going to change that.

I feel so badly for you, nonna. This son-in-law of yours is a real piece of work. Guess you'll have to finish your treatment, say you're better and then see where you are with things.

Seriously, this makes me so mad, I want to open up a can of whoop-arse, but you can't change stupid, right?

What about smileynot post about mosquito's
Then response from other contagious post
Better safe than sorry old research ,but still after all other reply's it was a study that indicated some possibility..

I hope that person and other's chime in..

We are talking either to overprotective thinking or something amiss...

I mention so many are sick and family is not, unless they were bit or in the heart of tick territory.

I'm sorry, but my heart is just sinking..
I've had pale bowels movements and then the runs all last night.

Very worn out and this comes up...

This is my grand-children we are talking about..

Once I opened this subject on Lyme net,,most said no way, etc..which is not wording or proof I can present,,and a few are saying yep,,maybe..

God as if this wasn't bad enough as it is.....

Tickle..time frame?????? If you've followed my info at all,

I know I've been so sick and keep feeling like I'm messing or missing a piece of the puzzle.....

I never thought it could get as bad as it was a couple months ago, now into the realm Leper( sorry if anyone is ill with that).

I now pay attention to everything I touch , have feeling of Skete's running around in my mouth. on and on..

Moving on is accepting no family ...

Wasn't Son-In -Law that came up with the bite me ,bite them and then I saw the post..

I have to stop and hope somebody has some solid ammo for me..
Thank you.... You can imagine what this is doing to my emotions

Oh! and the saliva and salava posts? one spelled different/

I know cut and paste...Maybe instead of a person to help with juices/salads etc,....I should get a kid in here and force me to do it until it sticks in brain

Crud......After all these years of studies and such ,just when you think it couldn't get worse/// my bug is going to come along and suck my Skete's and put them in some one else......
It's just crazy...has anyone called a blood bank to warn them of any donations you may have given ,when ill, but didn't know?//

Babesia is becoming a huge problem with this right now....
They know it's being passed and yet where's the news???


Those of you that are knew ,,PLEASE don't freak.
I'm talking about pints of blood......

this is only chatter ,looking for science..

There are many thing's you need to focus on..
I just have a unusual situation here. T

That may help others

there are many families where one is sick for years and noone else gets it

i think it might depend on the immune system and genes can change stuff too

why dont all llmds get sick?

Lyme? Its complicated. Educate yourself.

That's a good start....has anybody wondered about this to where they sought proof or at least a study or two????

Sorry I was so upset earlier..It just is blind siding me and I feel like H___ anyway,

So the time of healing or waiting on some of these meds to kick in is just a major bummer [Roll Eyes]

nonna:

I'm sorry, but you need to calm down.

We tend to view ILADS as a pretty reputable bunch of folks. The LLMD's / researchers there know there stuff. Is there more to learn? Sure. Do we know everything yet? no.

But what I do know is the most credible LLMD's in the country say the chances of transmission from person to person by saliva or other method is EXTREMELY SMALL IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE.

I fear you are spreading fear and getting yourself worked up.

Hug and kiss your kids. Smile. Try to live life as best you can. That is how to best ensure you get well.

bcb,,

That's what I'm saying ,,They aren't coming ..


I'm not the one who came up with this idea,,

It was brought to me to prove. Then a few of these issues just started coming around on here .

Like doctor who died, walking on grass. Saliva transfer,etc,

Just a couple post from others,

I'm not trying to spread fear..and have written that.

I wasn't afraid. It was more like when you first get sick

and go around to find answers.

I thought get good doctor ,comply, do common sense hygiene and move on..
.Not thinking others thought they could get sick from me.

I agree,, It's what's left of my family that I need LOGICAL ammo for, (not my wording)

I
I'm not at 90%, and am glad you are..but I'm sure trying....


I do need to calm down.

I just can't believe that people who care about you just come up with wanting some kind of proof for this and it's so not there .


My apologies if anyone felt fear rather than searching info,

I think I mentioned pretty often that it was a family thing that I was trying to squash and was hurting so much from it on top of feeling so sick..

Sorry ,Nonna

Nonna05 - IMHO your BEST tactic is to try to get better ASAP! If you are bed bound, what good is a visit with your grandchildren going to be for you or them?

Also, if you are well enough to get out of bed, that should help to allay the fears that you are contagious. Are you seeing a reputable LLMD? If you are not seeing any improvement, perhaps its time to "switch horses." Just my 2 cents.

Nonna,

I went through something similar and know the heartache you are going through. I wasn't able to see my grandchildren for a number of yrs and was truly heartbroken. I finally had to realize that I needed to focus on my healing.

I do have anxiety over the fact that when I did visit with them when they were younger, I might have passed on some of my parasitic infections which most of us have.

Parasites are highly contagious, and if by some miracle they should come to visit, they could be infected.

Don't mean to be negative, but it's a reality. Try and focus on your healing and before you know it, you will be well and able to see them.

P. S.

My son and grandchildren came to visit over Christmas, and I have an invitation and a plane ticket to go see them. It will happen for you and all in good time. [Smile]

Gael

Well that's a bummer... Not only do I not get to see the triplets ,but I just Skyped and saw a water bottle being shared.


Summer I know what you think about that...
.
But after all this about me and my cooties,,,seeing that just reminded me that short of a miracle their father would have them
go without ,rather than ever taking that chance..with me.

Not that I would want to harm them in anyway.. It's just that I'm not like everybody else anymore..

Gail, Thank you so much for sharing,,,It's pure H__l going through this ..

Doesn't being on 4 abx's contain this infection....

LOL Nonna, I was super concerned once about drinking out of a cup at the doctors office that I don't think was washed very well. I figured, I don't want to catch anything ELSE! [Smile]

I sometimes worry about passing things to other people even though I know the chance is EXTREMELY small and likely impossible plus never proven by studies.

I can tell you that my doctors don't seem to be concerned about "catching" anything from me and I have asked one of them if there was any possibility of passing this on to children. I was told very convincingly "NO. DO NOT WORRY ABOUT THAT."

I take precautions making sure that I don't share food or water bottles with other people. If kids are involved I just tell them that it's not a good idea because we each have different germs and germs are something we shouldn't share. I really don't think they SHOULD be sharing food, drinks, makeup etc. with other people anyway. Especially people outside their family.

I am also extremely cautious if I ever get a cut or something because I do have babesia. However, I was always cautious like this. Even before Lyme.

I can understand the fact that you feel isolated by your family, however, I don't think that research is going to make your son-in law change his mind. His opinion right now regarding contracting Lyme through saliva is not based on research, so I'm not sure that he will take the word of anyone once he's made up his mind.

Perhaps if he is so unreasonable, you may need to play into his fear and just offer to use separate dishes or something even though that's completely irrational on his part.

Put this on the back burner for now, nonna .. it is making you sicker. You can't get well like that.

With the right doctor, you may be well within two years. But you have to relax and let God handle this for you.

If you keep fighting this, it will take even longer to get well. Your SIL is indeed a piece of work.

[group hug]
