A Universal Life Minister and professional singer, been dealing with Lyme and associated diseases ever since I went on a canoeing/camping trip in 1998. After 4 years of extended abx treatment, I started to wonder if I'd reached a plataeu in my health progression.. but then found out that the co-infection Babesia is back. I have a wonderful team that I look to for medical advice, and I see my LLMD in West Seattle at least once a month. I take a lot of herbs, vitamins, and supplements as well as traditional western medications.
I'm 29, 7 years ago I had to move back in with my parents who, thank the gods, are wonderful caregivers. I'm divorced and a survivor of marital rape. I've advocated for Lyme patients since 2003; I'm a founding member of the Washington LDUC and run the online support group for WA State: look for "WALDUC-Support" on groups.yahoo.com
I love Western WA, it's been my home since I was 15. I've lived up and down Puget Sound: from Bellingham to Federal Way, from Seattle to Kent, from Tacoma to Gig Harbor. I spend free time in Seattle when I can.. I hope to meet many people in Washington with Lyme! If you need a local LLMD referral, I can offer a few.
