I love the nature and used to love sports but unfortunately I fell ill in fall 2004 with a mysterious illness. This year, after 8 long years of debilitating symptoms I was finally diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease and other co-infections. I also love gardening, reading, computers, art, music and relaxing whenever I can or have the time to relax and sometimes I enjoy going out with my friends. I also used to love travelling but Lyme disease makes it quite impossible for me at the moment. I was probably infected when I was only 5 years old – that’s when I found two large ticks stuck in my jugular area, however I only started feeling sick when I turned 19. Not really sure if that’s when I’ve contracted the infections but who knows.
Your can read my entire story on Lyme Disease here.
I had undergone a life changing personal experience of horrific Lyme Disease and been to over 40 doctors since 2004, only to find out this summer that, in fact I am suffering from a chronic systemic infection that has affected me both psychologically and physically. All these years have been probably the most challenging years of my life. It’s hard to go on with your life when you don’t even know why you feel so ill. I was always told that I suffer from anxiety and depression and all of my symptoms are psychosomatic but I never gave up – I always thought there far more going on with my body than just anxiety or depression.
Currently, I do not afford a proper treatment – I don’t afford to pay the high costs of antibiotics, secondary therapies and hospital bills, therefore, at the moment I am following an all natural protocol that seems to help a little. I am planning to see a private clinic in Augsburg Germany, as soon as I raise the necessary funds. There would be another viable option that I strongly support and that is seeing Dr. Rau at Paracelsus Clinic in Lustmuhle, Switzerland that uses a more “holistic” approach (through Biological Medicine) to treat Lyme Disease and the associated co-infections. If you enjoyed reading our website and found it useful please consider making a small donation that will go towards the costs of my treatment and medical bills.
(I know that everyone is struggling financially these days, but every little bit counts and will make a difference for me and my health that has gradually been deteriorated).
I’ve relapsed numerous of times during these years. I had a bitter experience during every single relapse but never as bad as I was this summer of 2012. However, I am now following a proper diet and a complex natural protocol and already started to feel a whole lot better – now I am hail and hearty to share my experience and make people aware of this dreadful disease that, unfortunatelly, is often misdiagnosed. My motive is to make people alert of the different signs and risks associated with Lyme Disease. People should understand Lyme disease, how does it affect unknowingly and what outcome does it renders on mind, physique and soul of the affected person.
I want people to know that, one single tick bite is just enough to change the entire life of a person and even become homebound (bedbound) and disabled. This website is dedicated to everyone that is willing to learn about Lyme from inside out. Along with our team, I am personally dedicated to learn about this crippling infection on daily basis and I am educating myself about the latest treatments as well as the most effective natural protocols and everything in between. Lyme.WS is also an useful and interesting resource for those that are in danger of contracting Lyme Disease and not only for the patients are presently suffering – and I am pretty sure everyone has a myriad of doubts and discrepancies in their mind – We have all the answers, right here on this website.
Since I am not a doctor by profession, our small community is not a diagnostic tool and all the content on this website has to be used for informational purposes only. We do not offer professional medical support, we are not equiped to do so. Our intention is to educate others about Lyme Disease and proffer a foundation for you to have a discussion with your personal physician regarding the countless Lyme disease symptoms and treatments that are available and we hope that you will be able to heal your mind and body from this “Silent Crippler” and regain your inner balance and live a full and happy life once again.
Lyme.WS is a non-profit online community for Lyme patients across the globe. Founded in 2011, Lyme.WS is the fastest growing web based Lyme community that offers a wide range of free resources to educate people about preventing, testing, diagnosing and treating lyme disease and other co-infections. We always provide hard truths, based on scientific research and try to eliminate the confusion and controversy that has been created around Lyme Disease.
All lyme patients must have access to quality care. Research and treatment that is vital to patients must be funded. Our mission is to educate patients and help those that are in need. We believe patients must have a voice whenever policymakers make decisions about Lyme disease. We believe that patients have the right to be shown respect, credibility about their debilitating symptoms and that those involved in their healthcare should be accountable. Patients must also have the right to make choices about their doctors and their treatment options. They must be given the right information to make informed choices. We are here to eliminate the Lyme controversy and get as many patients as possible on the right track. A few millions are suffering from Lyme Disease and they’re misdiagnosed. Our main rule of thumb is transparency.
We are currently looking for activists from all over the world. If you’re interested to join our community and get involved we would be happy to hear from – Please use our contact form.
