Re: “The tick and the time bomb

Thank you for this article. I moved to Colorado from California in 1999. I knew I had Lyme disease and needed to find a local doctor to continue my treatment. The first GP I saw looked at my test results and said, "My God, you have 3 infections!" I have tested positive for Lyme, Babesiosis and Erlichiosis, all transferred through a tick bite. This GP sent me to the local Infectious disease doc who told me I was not positive "enough" and that he wouldn't continue my treatment. I thought, "This guy is worthless" and determined to keep looking for a doctor who wasn't prejudiced." I ended up having to fly back to California regularly to see my Lyme doctor there. I finally did find a compassionate GP here and then was one of Dr. Martz' first patients. I was first diagnosed in 1990. I can share that long-term antibiotics do not do the damage to your body that is claimed. So hang in there. I have had many ups and downs but can work and feel good most of the time now. Also, get tested for viruses. When your immune system is weakened by fighting the Lyme, Epstein Barr, Human Herpes Virus 6 and 8 can gain strength. I've tested highly positive for all 3. There are antiviral drugs (Valgancyclovir and its previous versions) that have helped me immensely especially with the fatigue. If you have Lyme you have to be your own advocate and pray, pray, pray!
