Just wondering if there are any of you card makers who are suffering from Lyme Disease or other health issues like MS, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, etc. I myself am fighting a difficult battle with Lyme Disease and thought it might be nice to create a new group for us. Anyone interested?
Glad you joined us Regina!
Mel....I'll pass along that info to the ladies! I've never heard of it!
What a wonderful idea, Laurie! I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis, but want to do as much as I can to support others and get them to have fun and think positive. We can all find a common bond in the bright side of life with our challenges, right? Let me know what you want me to do and I'll be glad to help, sweetie!
I HAD LYMES IN 1989. I WAS ON IV MEDICATION FOR 21 DAYS. COULDNT HARDLY WALK. WAS PRETTY SICK. THAT IS SOME BAD STUFF.NOW I HVE PROBLEMS WITH MY JOINTS STILL GET TIRED EASY.I MAKE CARD TO CHILL OUT. TAKE MY MIND OFF OTHER THINGS. HOPE I HEAR FOM YOU.;)
no they did not catch mine in the early stages. I had joint problems at the time then as I got older they hit more joints. I still have to go in and get checked to see if its active. I think people just dont know how crippling this can be. It is nice to talk to somebody about this. I hope you are doing better Laurie. hope to hear from you soon; take care!!

Nice to hear from you. Did they catch your Lyme very early? If not, I have to question whether or not they got rid of it completely for you in just three weeks of IV therapy. Did you develope the joint problems after you were treated? If so, you may want to look into it further. I have a friend where I live that also has Lyme and she was on 3 weeks of IV antibiotics but that did not get rid of it for her because it wasn't caught quickly which is most often the case. I look forward tomchattingnwith you more.
I live in Wisconsin cenral part. The part that had all of the snow.lol. I have symptons everyday. About three years ago I devopled asthma, that stuff is nasty.My thoughts about Lymes is a person never gets rid of it. For me the older I get the more things pop up. I really dont think they know enough about Lymes. Im 58 years old.I was 35 when it hit me. My husband and I thought I had bone cancer. I could hardley move.Also about 2 years ago I had a heart attack. The did all kinds of tests. They could not believe for my age I have no Plauk in my artiries. No high cholestrel. So they think it stems from the Lymes. At least it did no damage to my heart. My Doctors husband he has to walk with a cane because of it. Take care!!!
Oh yeah... Unfortunatly this is one group I'd rather not be a member of...
Cf, Fibro.... I can join..
