I’ve been sick for years without a correct diagnoses. I took a wild guess and found a Lyme doctor. A reckless one. He gave me a lab report saying I had three times the level of lead than normal. We spent three days looking for LEAD. I called the office, while on hold I realized this wasn’t my labs.
Chronic Lyme Disease is a long battle. I wanted the best Doctor possible, off to D.C. for my first visit with Dr. Jemsek. I learned the Lyme Disease has progressed. My cognitive ability is 50-60%, I have Adrenal Fatigue, it can take five years of treatment to get well, or well as I’ll get. The tests were positive and will allow for IV Infusion Treatment. The next step is how much insurance will cover. Without insurance coverage the cost of IV Infusion Treatment for six months is $40-60K. I also have to fly to D.C. every month for checkup. FUN! FUN!
I sincerely thank my friends, you’ve lifted my spirit with every comment of well wishes.
I’ve included videos showing people who have Chronic Lyme. One video is my doctor, Dr. Jemsek. The crowd is mainly patients he’s treated over the years. Celebrating the premier of his movie Under Our Skin. XO Melinda
Jemsek speaks out
**Everyone who spends time outside or has children playing near wooded areas. The video is an hour-long homemade video made by her husband. I urge everyone to watch. It will remind you DEET products are the only recommendation by Lyme Specialist. I don’t like DEET but if saves a child or yourself from getting Lyme, it’s a tradeoff I’d take.
