As many of you know, I was diagnosed last year with Lyme disease. I’ve probably had it for over 10 years, but I was misdiagnosed and now it’s considered Chronic Lyme Disease. These little buggers called Spirochete bacteria can burrow into any tissue in the body and cause havoc. They also become antibiotic resistant and just start to take over. Those of you who know me, know that I am kind of a science geek (or mad scientist in the facial room a least!) so I will try not to get too crazy with my explanations. 🙂
The bottom line is, after doing some treatments here that were not successful and talking to a lot of people with Lyme disease who have tried all kinds of treatments, I’ve chosen to go to San Jose los Cabos, Mexico for stem cell treatment. I will try to blog as often as I can so you can see how things are going and say hi if you’d like. I am very excited about this treatment and the clinic I am going to.
I want to thank all of you for your unending support. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of kindness, generosity, love and prayers from all of you. My heart is full of gratitude. I will miss each and every one of you, but I will be back stronger than ever. As a dear friend quoted ” Lyme disease doesn’t know who it decided to mess with!!” I hope that I will bring awareness. comfort and hope to anyone suffering from this horrible disease. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you know who may need help.
I hope to hear from anyone who feels like writing to me. I will start the actual blog from the clinic on September 11 which will be my first day. Until then, be safe and enjoy the holiday weekend.
Love and Blessings
