Page on Lyme Disease

Probably more than any other topic, I receive e-mails related to my Lyme Disease.  I have been promising a page describing my symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment.  I’ve finally finished it, and hope it will be a helpful resource to those affected by this disease.  Or even those who are curious.

Prior to last year, I had no working knowledge of Lyme Disease, other than it was the disease that Irene had on Real World : Seattle.  My hope is to shine a spot light on this misunderstood and insidious disease, so that maybe at least one person doesn’t have to go through what I’ve been through.

I haven’t talked much about it lately, because I got tired of hearing the sound of my own voice.  But I’m doing really really well.  And am well on the road to beating this disease.  Thank you all, again, for your prayers and support.

To read my page on Lyme Disease, go here.  It is also listed along with my other pages at the top of my homepage.

  • I commented on the other page, but wanted to thank you again for sharing your knowledge and insight. God is using you powerfully in many ways – keep up the great work!

  • Lyme Disease, once it digs in deep, is a horrible disease. Particularly since IDSA (the Infectious Diseases Society of America) says it can’t exist after a few weeks of oral antibiotic treatments whereas my wife’s experience and ILADS (the Internationsl Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) say that it most definitely can. Once it gets into your central nervous system (nerves, spinal cord, and brain) the doctors we regard as competent all say you need IV antibiotics.

    Anyone who even suspects a tick bite should immediately see their doctor and beg for two weeks of oral antibiotics – and pray. See the CDC page at http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/
