I have come to realize that Lyme & its co-infections probably invaded my body during 1990 ~26 or more years ago. The anniversary of: my diagnosis is April 2014; finding a Lyme Literate Practitioner is October 2014, and returning to school part time to finish within my school’s deadline is January 2017. When I walk across the stage in 2017 in New Orlean’s obtaining my FNP/DNP in 2017, I will still have have Lyme Disease and be under treatment for years after.
I am sending out a call to all for a helping hand. My name is Melody, my goal is to improve the treatment of Lyme Disease in Louisiana. During my battle with Lyme, I have been told by multiple medical doctors and specialists that “There is NO such thing as Lyme Disease in Louisiana.” Please help me to change this preception by donating and helping me to further my Lyme education.
I am an Family Nurse Practitioner Student, and a Lymie! Currently, in Louisiana I only know of two Lyme Literate Doctors; one of them is Dr. Forrester. He has graciously agreed to share his wealth of knowledge with me so that I can better treat Lyme patients in Southeast Louisiana upon graduation. This means lots of travel, his office is in Pineville and I live in Saint Francisville. Due to my extensive and expensive Lyme Treatments, I am in need of financial support to complete my Lyme focused capstone project and to advance my Lyme knowledge.
