How long have you or a loved one had Lyme Disease?

If the first exposure to tick is when I got Lyme, then since 1992 (almost 20 yrs). Over the years, I did ELISA test/Igenex but they all come back negative or inconclusive...

What is your treatment protocol like?

Currently seeing Dr Christine Green (1 meeting so far)...she has not put me on any medications yet/we are waiting for the test results, but I took doxycycline before through family physician (at least +6 months) and also Dr Steven Harris (in 2004 and 2006 for short duration) which have result in my health improving and symptoms alleviating.

What would you like to get out of LEAPS meetings?

To learn more about the disease and how it affect others. To get support and to find out how people are coping/treating/dealing with this debilitating disease.

Introduction

I first found ticks on my body in 1992 after a hike through Tilden Park in Berkeley, seeing warning about Lyme disease post on the park bulletin board I been paranoid with the disease ever since.

What Doan D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Does anyone have bumper sticker for lyme? I would like to get some for my car. I dont use MeetUp often, maybe a facebook group would be an easier way for people to keep in touch and organize events?. I learned a lot from the meeting yesterday, and will attend future meetings.
