He looked at my blood under a high powered microscope hooked to a monitor so I could see as well. You could clearly see the spirochete in the blood. I tried supplement for 1 1/2 years and didn't get much better. My pain was unbearable. I finally went back to my primary care physician who did blood tests which came back negative. I am unable to manage day to day and cannot get treated. I am also unable to manage day on my own because of brain fog. The pain had taken over my life. The practitioner who diagnosed me said I have had Lyme for over 10 years. I am unable to get any treatment. I am 63, my husband not longer wants me. I often wonder how to go on and is it worth it.
