What is Lyme Disease?

Thanks for your concern and for checking in. This portion of my web site is delivered straight from my heart to yours. We "inherit a heritage" :) of what it means to have Lyme, and each of us must write our own story as to what it means to us. So, thanks for letting me share my story with you.

Our experience with Lyme disease is vastly unique to each of us, however there are common threads. My hope is, that with my words, I may tie together the threads that connect, promote awareness, decrease alienation and isolation, and brings about healing.

I can deeply appreciate that many of you will have more questions about this mysterious disease and may wish to contact me. I would love to respond to each and every one of your inquires, but my energy is limited. That is why I created this chapter of my web site.

I strongly encourage you to educate yourself as much as possible and to be proactive in your own healing. So, in an effort to launch you in the right direction, I am providing you the necessary resources to help you move forward.

Lyme disease is a potentially lethal bacterial infection transmitted by a tick. Ticks belong to the arachnid (spider) family. Borrelia burgdorferi is a spirochete which is the causative agent of Lyme. Spirochetes are a group of phylogenetically-distinct bacteria

Lyme disease is not only an epidemic; it is a pandemic – this devastating illness is quickly infiltrating communities world-wide. Here in Maryland, especially around the Eastern Shore, we are living in a very HIGH epidemic area, densely permeated by ticks. No one is immune, no one is exempt.

Ticks favor wet conditions and thrive under leaf litter, in tall grass, among stone walls, in gardens, in wood cabins and just about anywhere you can imagine. (Except maybe the desert?). They thrive in rural areas, but they also reproduce and populate in the suburbs and in cities. Ticks seem to becoming more and more resistant; they survive during spring, summer, fall and winter: year round. 

Ticks can be nearly invisible; as microscopic as the period at the end of this sentence. You might mistake it for a small freckle.

Not only deer carry ticks. There are many other hosts (mice, for example), and many other types of ticks (star tick, American dog tick...there are many) that carry several varieties of tick-borne illnesses/co-infections. These tick-borne co-infections (different organisms) can accompany Lyme: Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis and Bartonellosis.

If caught early with unmistakable detection manifested by the infamous "bull's-eye" rash, the infection may be successfully cured with several weeks of antibiotics. However, there is intense controversy in the Lyme community about using antibiotics to treat LD. A Lyme-literate physician recently provided me with some very useful, condensed, grass-roots information on this topic. More detailed information on my site is forthcoming.

The bulls-eye rash is the only 100% reliable diagnostic criteria to confirm a LD diagnosis. Sad news is, however, less than 50% of people bitten by a tick get the bulls-eye rash. Current tests used are still inconclusive and unreliable. A negative blood test means nothing; you can still be infected.

The lyme disease spirochete does not persist (live, thrive) well in fluids, i.e., blood, mucous, synovial fluid. Instead, the bacteria binds itself to nerve cells and buries itself in tissue. Therefore, it is very difficult to detect, and serological (serum-based) tests results are unreliable.

You may be infected, however, but be asymptomatic (not showing symptoms); however, your body may be experiencing ongoing tissue damage.

Lyme Disease shares the same spirochete as Syphilis, thus becoming our modern day version of the "Great Imitator;" Lyme imitates many auto immune disorders and degenerative diseases such as Lupus, ALS, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn's Disease, fibromyalgia ... the list goes on. I was incorrectly diagnosed with several of the conditions that I just listed.

Obviously, undiagnosed, Lyme and its co-infections can be devastating. Once the organism lodges itself into the central nervous system and entrenches itself into tissue and behind the blood barrier in the brain, systemic complications such as heart trouble, joint difficulty, tissue damage, respiratory breakdown and a myriad of complications arise.

Just to name a few… herniated disks, back pain, heart problems, arthritis, myalgias, memory loss, chronic respiratory infections, asthma, allergies, joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain, dizziness, numbness, hearing & vision disturbances, concentration difficulty, attention deficits, autism, depression, word-finding difficulty, learning disorders, brain fog, strokes, skin problems, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, chronic fatigue and pain, muscle pain, sleep disorders, and neck pain. The list is exhaustive. There are hundreds more. So many, that an infinite list of symptoms could spill right off of this page into a book the size of an encyclopedia. The list goes on, and on, and on, and on. Seriously

The disease affects everyone very differently. Two people could be standing next to each other and be bitten and infected at the same time, on the same day. One person could end up in a wheel chair; the other person could still live a normal life. It all depends on so many factors.

Looking Back ...

It is hard to know where to begin when a story unfolds over so many, many years. After over ten years of immune system challenges and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with severe advanced Lyme Disease on May 1, 2002.Turns out I've probably been infected since I was age 13 or 14 and reinfected several times, not only with Lyme Disease, but also with many of the tick-borne co infections (different organisms) that accompany Lyme.

I will try to encapsulate years of this journey into a brief synopsis. Spring of 2002, I underwent a rigorous rule-out procedure of eliminating the possibility of many other diseases. The menu consisted of a Bone Scan, MRI, Endoscopy, Colonoscopy, Spinal Tap, Infinite blood tests, EKG, Stress Test, Holter Monitor, Neurological Exam, Psychiatric Consult, and on and on and on. Result? I have Lyme Disease. Confirmed May 1, 2002.

The first line of treatment was six weeks of rigorous oral antibiotics; six weeks turned into one year of both oral and intravenous antibiotics. On September 11, 2002, of all days, I began intravenous antibiotic therapy consisting of self-administered 30-minute daily infusions. A home health nurse visited me weekly to change my dressing and do blood work to check kidney and liver toxicity levels. I had a PICC (peripheral intravenous central catheter) line in my right bicep that was implanted in a blood vessel in my arm that fed into the largest vein in my body, the superior vena -- leading directly into the heart. On May 9, 2003, the line was removed from my arm, at my request, as my body intuition told me I was toxic and feeling worse.

Back to Top: Main Menu

What is Post-Lyme Syndrome?

Examples of "incurable" but "manageable" cases are those in which a person has been treated with conventional antibiotics but who is still experiencing a manifest of problematic symptoms. These Lyme sufferers have a chronic condition, lasting years and years, called Post-Lyme Syndrome. This condition is a subject of great controversy. Many patients develop Post-Lyme Syndrome after it is assumed that the bacteria have been killed.

A chronic Post-Lyme Syndrome condition usually results from late-stage diagnosis, but another controversial belief among the Lyme community enforces that the side effects of long-term antibiotic also contribute to the syndrome. Two different camps in the Lyme community argue this theory. One camp postulates that long-term antibiotic use may be as devastating to the body as the disease itself; in my case, I agree. Thus, over-prescribed, long-term antibiotic use may, in fact, contribute to the Post-Lyme condition. So, a more suitable name for Post-Lyme Syndrome may very well be Post-Antibiotic Syndrome. A condensed explanation of how Post-Lyme Syndrome develops may simply be explained as follows.

Over a period of time, the Lyme bacteria continues to release toxins into the affected tissue as they die. These toxins can persist for a long time. The lingering presence of these toxins in the body create a systemic breakdown along with an amiable environment for other secondary viruses and bacteria to proliferate in the body. This is now the stage I'm trying to learn to manage.

Back to Top: Main Menu

How Does Mary Manage Post-Lyme/"Antibiotic Syndrome"?

Managing any kind of chronic condition requires addressing the body's needs as a "whole." I am addressing heals on ALL levels: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This means being commited to weekly and monthly appointments with my body workers (i.e., massage, Reike), psychologist, psychiatrist (for medication management), acupuncturist and who ever else factors into the whole equation. I also maintain a daily regimen of vitamin, mineral and herb supplementation. MOVING my body is critical; I take daily walks any time I can. Walking helps both the vascular circulatory system in the body AND the second largest circulatory system in the body: the lymphatic system. Detox protocols (foot baths, epsom salt baths) are also essential. Lots of protein and veggies are beyond essential. Sadly, my energy gets in the way of cooking nutritious meals, so nutrition is my weakest link. And I pay for it -- seriously.

Back to Top: Main Menu

How is Lyme Disease Diagnosed?

At this point in time, diagnosis and testing is still tricky and controversial. Although I've read that false positives are less common than false negative tests, it is critical to know and understand that blood tests and other tests looking for the bacteria in the blood (serologies) are still not always reliable and often inconclusive. More research for more reliable testing is necessary! According to what I've read, this is because the spirochete does not persist easily in fluid, but rather binds itself to nerve cells and buries itself in tissue.

It is very important to understand that you may have an ELISA or Western Blot blood test in an effort to diagnosis Lyme Disease, and your results may be negative; however, you may still have the disease, especially if you are in the advanced stages. There are a variety of reasons why your test may show up negative even though you are infected: 1.) you may not be producing antibodies 2.)the disease may be dormant 3.) the lab that ran your test(s) may not be a good direct detection lab or they may not test for all varieties (for lack of a better term). Believe me, this is only a microscopic view into the complexity of diagnosis and testing. I strongly suggest visiting other links available on my web site for more comprehensive understanding.

Back to Top: Main Menu

Spread the Word!

It is critical to spread the word about the complexity and ubiquitous nature of Lyme. Lyme disease is a huge, severely under-reported epidemic, and not one single person is immune. We had no idea that I had Lyme, no idea how serious it could be, no idea of all of the neurological ramifications like tremors, short-term memory loss, and psychological/psychiatric challenges that can occur if it goes undetected. Lyme disease is a very tricky and insidious little critter, and it can literally take years to recover from its systemic attack one one's body.

The message? Get tested, get informed. You are your own best defense against this insidious disease. I hope the resources listed on this page will help you or someone you care about avoid years of treatment and impairment.

This disease is very complicated (and still "young" in terms of research development and standardized treatment protocol) and would take pages and pages for me to inform you of it, so please consult the resource and help list I've assembled here.

Thanks for reading!

So Many to Thank ...

I have been out of work since September 6, 2002. I live alone, and I am my sole support. So many wonderful souls have stepped in to help make up the obvious economic devastation that goes along with being self-employed and unable to work. I do have health insurance and limited disability insurance, and I am infinitely grateful, but it falls short of what my budget requires to pay doctor bills, monthly bills, essential food and medicine expenses and to keep a roof over my head.

Dozens of other folks have held raffles, passed hats, sent checks, dedicated their own paycheck for a particular show, simply done incredibly sweet and helpful things out of the goodness of their hearts. Healers continue to support me thru the recovery process. There is no way to adequately thank all of the wonderful people who have helped out in ways big and small, but I keep trying as I go. Every single one of your donations is keeping me afloat. I wish there was an entire dictionary of words dedicated to the expression "thank you," because I certainly feel lost for more words.

In addition to your charitable donations, there were several wonderful benefit concerts held on my behalf these past few years, along with generous help from "Byrdwatchers," our community, businesses, musician assistance organizations and healers. I am grateful to say that there are too many angels to name here. For those of you not listed below, you know who you are, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all you do, all you are and all you mean to all of us. With infinitely sincere gratitude and special thanks, I warmly acknowledge:

Informational Resources | Getting Tested | Recovery and Healing

I have accepted that being a "public figure" afflicted with Lyme disease offers me an opportunity to spread the word about the complexity and ubiquitous nature of what now may well be considered a Lyme Disease epidemic in the United States. When I was finally diagnosed, after many, many years of being misdiagnosed, I had no idea that I had Lyme, no idea how serious it could be, no idea of all of the neurological ramifications like tremors, short-term memory loss, and psychological/psychiatric challenges that can occur if it goes undetected. It can literally take years to recover from its systemic attack on one's body.

I am hopeful that by sharing what I am continuing to learn from this experience, I may be able to help others be more quickly diagnosed and to research and provide resources to give them their life back more quickly. I am hopeful that if you are exploring this information, these resources will help you learn much more about Lyme disease and where you can gather critical information and medical help necessary in your quest for your own recovery or your loved ones' healing. This is a "living document" that I will update as I learn of new resources and techniques.

REMEMBER! It is reported that:
1.) Less than 50% of people bitten by a tick (deer dick, lone star tick, American dog tick --there are many types) get the bulls-eye rash. I never did.
2.) You may have an ELISA or Western Blot blood test in an effort to diagnosis Lyme Disease and your results may be negative; however, you may still have the disease, especially if you are in the advanced stages.

LYME DIRECT DETECTION & TICK TESTING LABORATORIES

If caught early, detection and treatment for Lyme disease is fairly routine. Here in the mid-Atlantic where the disease arrived years before the general awareness in the medical community, many people develop advanced or late-stage Lyme disease without ever getting accurately diagnosed. Lyme Disease shares the same spirochete as Syphilis, thus becoming our modern day version of the "Great Imitator;" Lyme imitates many auto immune illnesses and degenerative diseases/symptoms such as Lupus, ALS, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn's Disease, fibromyalgia ... the list goes on. I was incorrectly diagnosed with several of the conditions listed here. In these later stages accurate testing can be elusive.
