I got Lyme at the age of 14, from tick bites. I immediately started having chronic headaches and infections. At 19, I started having balance issues and paralysis. At 27, I was paralyzed from the ribs down and so sick I could hardly move.
Lyme Disease is becoming more and more prevalent, as the ticks spread via deer, mice, birds and other creatures.
It is vital to get treatment immediately, but Lyme is often misdiagnosed, overlooked and/or under-treated, leaving patients with moderate to debilitating and often life-threatening symptoms.
I have been in the fatal stage of Lyme since 1991, but I am not going down without a fight!
