I made it home…finally!

Back in November last year (2015), it was finally time to head back the UK after a long 8 months in California having intensive medical treatment for this Chronic and life alliterating ¬†illness; Lyme Disease.

My Fight For Remission Continues…

It has been 3 months since I arrived in California and began round 2 of magic medicine. I can’t believe I am still here or how quickly time has gone! I had originally booked a return flight for the middle of May, but as time crept up, reality kicked in… I still needed more medicine…

Another Day, Another Hospital… Not quite how it looked on ER!

New Year, New Meds!

I am happy to say I finally attended my first consultation at GMA (Gordon Medical Associates) yesterday. Armed with pen and paper and my ever growing medical file, I managed to keep my concentration for two hours! I had to discuss the last 15 months of illness; not easy when the list of symptoms is…
