Lyme Warrior Kim 

About 35 years, we think, to be properly diagnosed 
 Lyme with Bartonella & Babesia, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, Biotoxin Illness, POTS, Adrenal Insufficiency, IBS, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, 
 “When you have a chronic illness, you find out two things. Who really loves you and how strong you really are. “

Years to be properly diagnosed: 4 years of chronic pain, feeling terrible, and actively searching for an answer. A lifetime of strange illnesses that never quite added up. I don't recall a tickbite and never had a bulls-eye rash. I tested negative for Lyme twice.

I have: Chronic Neurological Lyme (borrelia burgderferi), Bartonella, Babesia, CMV, EBV, HHV6, chlamydia Pneumoniae, mycoplasma Pneumoniae 

About living with Lyme:

When I was feeling my worst, living with Lyme wasn't really 'living' at all. It was simply surviving. It was all I could do to get through that day, that minute, or even that breath. And the people you're supposed to be able to go to for answers and for comfort (doctors, hospitals) will tell you that you're crazy, that there's nothing wrong with you. So you stay home, you lean on those who love you, and you keep breathing because you have no choice. You survive.
