These are comparison photographs on how Lyme has affected me.
1st collage-all photos are of me in 2016, (some as close as April 2016)
2nd collage: me now
3rd collage- my swollen big toe joint, (causes terrible pain in that joint. Loss or range of motion.) You can also see some of the babesia lines in my foot. (They run vertical, up from my toes, and they look like spider veins)
Woke up as usual. Pain. So much pain.
It hurts, and pains me to breathe each breath, and my chest is hurting too, with air hunger.
Every step I take, causes the joint to hurt, big toe to feel like it's breaking.
It's getting harder to walk. I'm falling more. I can't dovetail. I'm forgetting everything I'm trying to do.
Pain in my gi, hurts so much!
Spread the word! Lyme will reach everyone. It's very painful, and scary.
Not going to the er for chest pains, due to the abusive, and ignored concerns.
