If anyone read any of my previous posts, they would know that I have been considering moving to florida and seeing DR C, however I have realized that I will be moving to more stress than I have now as my family really doesn't get it and being closer to them is going to be more stress than the "support" I will be getting. I am also strongly considering leaving my husband at this point because the stress of our marriage and his lack of understanding is just making me sicker. However, I am in a situation where I cannot take care of myself and I live in a state where not being able to drive and get around is very very difficult and I cannot afford to hire someone to drive me around

Problem is...I don't do well in cold weather climates (i am crippled from extreme heat and cold)...living in AZ now and have sustained spinal cord injury, which has made me more sensitive to the heat, to say the least and I cannot even take advantage of our new train system because it is outdoors and I have collapsed on numerous occassions.it is also not convenient and doesn't go many places so I am pretty much homebound.

I am looking into moving to a state where the transportation and services are better (I know they are bad everywhere but better would work)...and where there is at least one lyme dr who takes medicare and cost of living is not astronomical. I would probably have to get into some kind of housing for the mentally ill..i would have to convince them my issue is psychiatric as there are no housing for young chonically ill covered by insurance.

Thanks for any advice you can give me on states with the best services. Preferably on the east coast but whatever advise you have where a chronically ill person can make it a bit easier and get around.

Thanks...I am becoming desperate!!!

I'm so sorry you are in such a bad place mentally and physically. I don't know of any state where it's good for what you need.

I hope someone will have a good idea for you!!!

It's really hard to find LLMD's who take Medicare anymore.

LB, do you have medicare or medicaid?

You said "I would probably have to get into some kind of housing for the mentally ill..i would have to convince them my issue is psychiatric as there are no housing for young chonically ill covered by insurance"

If you have psyche issues, the cause is really irrelevant. Being in housing for the mentally ill may not be in your best interest as a Lyme patient.

In many states, you can get into subsidized apartments in housing for the elderly. It is my understanding they set aside a certain number of units for those who are younger but low income / ill.

Keeping you in prayer for the perfect solution [group hug]
