Living with Lyme Disease and it's complications

This is a mild day 8/10 pain scale, usually i’m jerking around so much screaming and writing in pain. In August there were some complications we thought it could have been 2 of the 5 medications I was on for lyme. So I stopped 2 of them for a month. As everyone with lyme knows, once you get off the meds which help/save your life…if treated for under 2 years…the immune system weakens so bad that we can catch things like Shingles.
I was bed ridden for the month of September, unable to bathe, dress, cook, clean for myself. Friends had to come over in shifts.
Shingles went misdiagnosed just like my lyme disease did for 4 years and as a result of that I am left with postherpetic neuralgia.

Every 3 months I HAVE to travel to the USA for EXPENSIVE meds and supplements as well as antibiotics. There is no treatment in Canada and no help from the medical community or government. If it wasn’t for my best friend Kristy working 2 jobs and her loving supportive family, and for all of my dear loving friends and online family, I wouldn’t be here right now. Thank you sooooooooooooooo much everyone for all of your love, compassion, support, I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for your belief in me, your love and compassion and generous donations.
Please if you could watch the link below?

this is a fundraiser my best friend is doing for me in hopes of generating enough money to take me back to the USA this December for more treatment.
Love and light to all.
