|Fighting Lyme (& Co-infections) 10: As the Stomach/Head Turns

|The Progress of Fighting Lyme (and Co-infections) 3
This entry revolves around the continuing saga of treating my tick-born illness(es) and trying to get to a place of wellness in many respects. I am continuing to see a Lyme Literate MD (LLMD) but ...
|The Progress of Fighting Lyme (and Co-infections) 2

|"Why can't I get better?" Untangling the Mystery of Lyme and Chronic Illness -- the first 100 pgs
Since at least one person slammed me for my first diary post, I will post something of current importance to me. Dr. Richard Horowitz wrote a very long book on chronic illness, specifically Lyme ...
|Why did Facebook "ban" me for 12 hours?
