A follow up to “Lyme Disease – The Great Imitator“
By Tonya Mott
Since sharing Kelsey’s story a few exciting, (good and not so good) things have happened:
1. What is Kelsey doing for treatment? She has quite the treatment regimen, but the most interesting is bee venom. She has a bee condo inside her house, some of you may have seen these at the local Costco this summer. Have no worries, the bees are at the end of their life cycle when she received them. Her hubby grabs one with a tweezer and stings her. I know it sounds horrible but if it helps her feel better then I say, I’m all in. (I’m leaving out a lot of detail but wanted to at least share at a high level).
2. Kelsey and I were interviewed by KTUU. It just so happened that my blog post was published in May, which is Lyme Disease awareness month. I shared the story with KTUU and they responded immediately, asking if my friend would be willing to do an on camera interview – sorry, Kels! Of course, she happily accepted.
3. My husband received a clinical diagnosis of Lyme – MSIDS (Multiple Systemic Infection Disorder Syndrome). We had our suspicions after learning about Kelsey’s symptoms and we finally have an answer. This is very new and we are still working through the details.
