Multiple Sclerosis. MS. These two words are two words that will forever change my life… I am a relatively new “MSer,” officially diagnosed in March of 2011. Simply put, this blog is to document my “disability progression” as the medical companies phrase it. This is my story, these are my highs and lows, this is my way of dealing with having a chronic, degenerative disease.

Well, at least that’s how it started. After a lot of research and several vials of blood… I discovered that I had been misdiagnosed.

Lyme Disease. I never thought I’d be so happy to hear these two little words. Not that I’m happy to have Lyme disease, but at least with Lyme there is hope of recovery. With MS, the medical community tells you there is no hope of getting better, there is only hope of delaying getting worse. I am a fairly new “Lymie,” being officially diagnosed in November 2011.

So rather than documenting my “disability progression” from Multiple Sclerosis, I hope to document my recovery from Lyme disease. I have chose to attempt to heal my body naturally with whole, nutrient dense foods, herbs, and supplements.  So far, I have been finding success with this route. Time will tell.

I sincerely appreciate all of the support that I have received from everyone throughout this entire experience. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I feel incredibly humbled and blessed by the immense amount of kindness that Brandon I have received from family, friends and complete strangers.

    I live in Dayton Ohio and was recently diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I found your blog by accident doing a google search for Lyme and Loechinger and this blog came up. From your blog I realized that you must live in or near the Dayton area also. I am scheduled for a MSA in October with Dr. Carol Loechinger. I have felt so alone these past few months and would love to talk to you.
    Best Regards.
