    For Lyme Disease Awareness Month I am posting links to very good and helpful information about tick-borne diseases/infections. This includes info about Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, and other infections.

    If we find and treat the root causes of our symptoms, we have a much better chance of recovery.

    Nanie46, There is a new poster on our Homebound/Bedbound board who has Lyme and I didn't know how to direct her to you. If you'd like, you can look on that board. I think her thread is called "New Here..... and Scared". Thanks and hope you're doing well. GB66
