Do not steal my art, create your own.


It's Lyme Disease. Years of questions, illness, fighting, battles, scars... Didn't think this would be it, but it is. I have my answer. A huge weight has been lifted. Can't say I'm happy about it, but we are on the right path now. Not looking forward to the treatment, as it's pretty gnarly, but it has to be done. I have had this for years so there would be permanent damage to my organs and brain, but once we get rid of the bugs my body can stop attacking itself and my immune system should return to "normal". I still can't believe some "doctors" don't think Lyme disease is in Australia, clearly it is.

We think I got bitten 10 years ago, and I've been misdiagnosed for the past 6. I need a wheelchair myself, I know what it's like. <3

I'm not sure if I am able to have a PICC line, I have a pacemaker so my veins are already filled with wires :XD: There's always the other side, so yeah, I just have to wait and see <3
That's wonderful, I hope that month comes fast!

At least you know the source of your ill health. Best of luck on the treatment! I'm sure that it will go well for you.
