Thank you for posting here. While there are many people here with all sorts of mental illnesses I'm not aware of any with - or care for people with - Lymes disease.
The little I know is that it is the result of an tick bite and results in mainly physical symptoms. These can vary over time in severity from minor to extremely serious.
Unfortunately advice concerning that ailment is beyond the scope of beyond blue.
That being said many here are aware of the toll taken on those that care for people with disabilities of one sort or another. This can be an overwhelming situation with little or no respite.
Would you care to do two things? Firstly have a brows in the Carers section of this Forum and see if the troubles cares have ring a bell with you - feel free to join in if they do.
Secondly you are welcome to post again saying more abut your situation and how you are bearing up.
My best wishes
He has had many tests along the way, he's now 65 which my Dad had
At the moment I'm not sure what has been happening with him because he doesn't talk much about it. Geoff.
thanks for your reply , there's 1000s with this disease but not many get diagnosed, there's very little help due to the government sucking their heads in the sand and refusing to believe it's in Australia
im at my wits end trying to cope , hubby gets very grumpy and takes it out on me , I've been to a councillor and on the first visit she told me my marriage is over , which wasn't much help , I went 3 times in all but it wasn't any help
I have no one to help or give me advice because no one understands the disease
it's cost about $120 k so far for treatment and there's no help from Medicare
he can't work , and we are just getting by on my wage
we live like friends in separate bedrooms as he's awake all times of the night
sorry I'm going on
I just wish there was someone in same position I could chat to
