If One Trauma Wasn't Enough
I’ve come to a stage where, although I’ve tried to explain in great detail, along with my results to my family members, they still show great ignorance and discomfort at the sheer mention of my health problems. If you can’t count on your own family at a time like this, then I don’t know when you can. It has almost been like fighting two illnesses.
It has caused arguments, intolerable silences and at times I feel like the black sheep of the family. It’s almost like being cut off. I’ve even had to tip-toe around them, like walking on egg-shells, for fear of causing another row yet I’m the one suffering. I’ve been in situations where they can see I am not well yet they don’t say much because of their ignorance. I say it’s the parasites, the worms, and that I’m having a flare-up - they look awkwardly at me, they just don’t know what to say. It was extremely bad in the first few years of my illness. It has only gotten better since I received my results and micrographs but I still believe they show ignorance even after all of this. I think if some of my family sat down and just read some of the articles again, I think they’d perhaps have a better understanding. I’ve left articles before but obviously it hasn’t sunk in or they just haven’t given up some of their time to perhaps read them. I’m not asking them to study the articles, but after I produced my results I thought perhaps this would make them want to understand. Perhaps I was wrong.
It has been beyond belief at times. I hope no-one in my family ever experiences what I’ve had to go through. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst eneny.
The one thing that has kept me going is knowing the truth and it has not hampered my determination to get my health back. The fight within me has gotten much stronger by the day.
Progress has been slow, but it was to be expected if I’m honest. I have so much going on and to deal with every infection at once would be too much for my body to bear, (let alone for myself to take on and treat myself.) I have a great person looking after me and I have every faith that I will regain my health and get my life back. I am making progress.
It has also been a long and arduous learning curve for me too. But I am more knowledgable than I have ever been and I have that on my side.
Many thanks for all the information.
With regards to my own health I've questioned Lyme Disease also. I was bitten by a tick many, many years ago, in my teens. One of the first people I went to see with regards to my health issues when I first fell ill (after my own GP) was a private Kinesiology Practitioner who also happened to be a private GP. He treated me through Kinesiology and he told me I had Babesia Microti and Bartonella. When I researched a little on these diseases, it mentioned tick bite as being the transmitter for Babesia Microti and fleas for Bartonella.
Oh, the family issues, I can relate to you there. I found it upsetting too, a feeling of helplessness and being alone.
I'm glad to hear you have found someone who is helping you.
