Hello friends, I say friends without having met any of you, because we are already bound by a common thread. We go through and deal with things that only other lymies understand.
My name is Tammy. My posting name is livingfree, for I will not allow this disease to keep me bound. I will walk the path of this life with joy and freedom.
On the days that overwhelm and make me feel like I cannot take one more second of what this disease does, I know I have the freedom to reach out to.... friends.
I was diagnosed with Lyme and co-infections 4 years ago, battling for 10 years prior having no idea, like many of you.
I worked with an integrative MD for about a year and half, and while I had some success, I was on a roller coaster of feeling better than crashing again. I wanted to take my health into my own hands and saught the help of a mentor. Best choice I ever made!
With her guidance, I am now using herbal remedies and learning more about harmonious living and really understanding the importance and listening to my body.
I am thankful to be here, and looking forward to meeting all of you......my friends.

Hi Tammy!!! I'm fairly well acquainted with most of the members here, still - the rest of you I'm sure we will get to know more about each other than we ever wanted to know! LOL! Lyme and company has a way of doing that.
Thank you for letting others know a bit about you - and for your very kind words to all of us, including me!!
A 4 decade survivor of Lyme and company, and still doing battle with it.
I also became my own health advocate after seeing too many doctors who didn't have a clue! I used alternative medicine plus lots of detoxing (I still detox for my own reasons) and I'm going on 12 years of being healed. I also continue to listen to my body.. When I was sick and undiagnosed I had this craving to eat raw garlic and I had no idea why but I was popping garlic bulbs in my mouth like it was candy... Lo and behold I'm sure the garlic was helping me even though I stunk!
Wishing you well,
14 years healed! Used biological medicine by Dr. Jernigan, lots of detoxing and more. Still continue to detox and drink Green Vibrance.
