Lyme Disease, Babesiosis, and Bartonella.
The three TBD!
I have three tick born diseases (TBD) and they stink. I have chronic fatigue, in the last week, I have been unable to cut my meat on two occasions and given up eating 2 meals due to fatigue while chewing.
I wake up with pain. Joint pain. Muscle pain. Yesterday, I woke up and had messed up my tendons in my sleep. I welcomed my Wheelchair but I got fatigued from that, too.
You may remember I told you a while ago I had Lyme Disease. I was bit by a tick. When? I do not know. I just know that it happened about 15 – 20 years ago. Those tests I had at age 19 must have been wrong… My body has completely gone downhill.
My doctor is currently combating the Babesiosis, I think. One at a time. I was in remission. Then, my insurance stopped covering my meds, I ran out of coverage. I now am back on my meds, but Lulu will probably go to daycare, which breaks my heark. I was really enjoying being with her.
I have been more successful with oral meds than my doctors or I had hoped and I will likely be able to avoid IV at home. The unfortunate thing, is that, with all this pain, I am a lucky and successful candidate.
When I was in Vietnam with Lulu, I really just thought I was a tired new mom! Not so much anymore. Now I am a tired mom, who is fighting like heck to be better.
I hate ticks. I see hiking as a highway to hell. I don’t want to play outside with Lulu because I see it as Tick Heaven!
Anyway, it’s bad, and I just wanted to update you all. I will surely be posting great pics of Lulu soon!
