Back Home In California – LDI 

7 Sep


My dad flew in from California to Connecticut two weeks ago to pick me up and help drive me back home. I had to leave behind all of my 7 month old furniture that cost me $1800 because nobody could find a mover to come get it on the Offer Up app. I had at least 14 offers all way lower than I hoped for ($400 was the highest) and I threw in a ton of free stuff and still couldn’t find anyone to take the furniture. I had to leave behind at least $2100 in stuff. It really hurt but I had no room in my compact car. 

My dad and I drove the I-80 route. Most states were full of corn fields. On the ride back we were able to stop in Canton, Ohio to see the NFL Hall of Fame since we are both huge football fans. We knocked the drive across the country and visit to the Hall of Fame of our bucket lists. Most of the states were flat and boring. I really like upper NY and PA the best on the way back out of all the states we drive through. We ate at a really good restaurant in PA called Overboards. Had a nice seafood pasta primavera dish. There was a NASCAR race in one state I think PA so the hotel rooms were all booked for miles and they charged us $175 a night for a cheap old room. 

I’ve always wanted to see Salt Lake City, Utah since I was a kid. I thought it was mountains, pine trees and a big beatiful lake to fish on. Boy was I wrong! The freeway system there was old and confusing. Then the Salt Lake was just that, a lake full of salt. It’s a salt flat as far as the eye can see for miles and miles. The lake in inhabitable by fish or wildlife. The area was flat and no trees. I couldn’t wait to get out of the salt flats that seemed to extend through Wyoming and Nevada. 

We made it home in 5 days. I am now safe and in the care of my parents again. I am also back with my little 4 year old niece who lives with us. She’s my little buddy. I tried to move to CT to prove that I wanted to marry my girlfriend and settle down with her but she admitted she was scared, got cold feet and pushed me away the day I got there. I saw her one time in 7 months. You never know unless you try. I thought I was finally going to start my future but I guess it wasn’t my time. Time to restart my life. 

I took another LDI dose right before I moved and it calmed my immune system from attacking itself for about 6 days and wore off. But I did feel a slight difference and calm inside. Now I am back to being in severe pain and feeling my usual horrible self. I’m hoping to get ketamine infusions soon and I’m going to see a new Lyme doctor soon. 
I hope you all are hanging in there and not giving up! Don’t let Lyme get the best of you.

    Dear 49erbryan, I have been in your shoes but have found a light at the end of my long dark tunnel. I am a patient of Internal Medicine of Northern Virginia. A clinic run by Dr Samuel Shor the current president of ILADs. I have been on herbal remedies and using a hyperbaric oxygen tank. Finally I am having days without the dreaded joint pain and muscle cramping and brain fog I have lived with for over 20 years! And no antibiotics!!! I highly recommend this clinic to anyone suffering from the debilitating effects of Lyme disease, babesiosis, bartonella, erlichiosis, etc…. They use a team approach with all the physicians and PAs taking part in your recovery. They have a physical therapist who uses manual lymphatic drainage and myofacial release with absolutely magical results.
    I will recommend this clinic to anyone suffering the varied and personal effects of tick bites!! Intmednova.com check it out! Sincerely Ross
