My Friend Dayna was diagnosed with lyme disease in 2015 by a doctor in California. She used her life savings on treatment and was doing well but when she ran out of money the doctors turned her away. She would go to emergency rooms where people would tell her she needs a psychiatrist for anxiety and depression. She was basically homeless. So I told Dayna to come to Florida and I would try to help her. She is living in a vacant apartment that I got her rent free while she awaits her disability case which has been denied. Thankfully she received food stamps. Medicaid denied her 2 times already. She needs to see an infectious disease specialist but has no money. I have taken her to Henerson Mental Health Center, Minor Emergency's and the regular ER. She was put on some antidepressants but they aren't working. I am so scared for her and her service dog.
Dayna stays in bed for days. She has Its diatomaceous earth
powered all over her apartment because she says "it kills the bugs". She is so swollen its hard for her to talk. She complains of Joint pain, stiffness of joints, back, neck, muscle pain, cramps, Headaches, Numbness and tingling, weakness, Light-headed & dizzy, memory Loss, Confusion (difficulty with thinking), sensitivity to light, Mood swings, depression, Panic/anxiety attacks, Insomnia or sleeping too much, PTSD (from previous domestic violence) Paranoia about bugs, Hallucinations of Seeing bugs on her body & everywhere. Shortness of breath, Night sweats or chills, Heart palpitations, Extreme fatigue, Jaw pain, Swollen, flu-like symptoms, unable to stand for long periods of time, carry out instructions and incapable of handling stress.
She needs financial aid to see the infectious disease specialist or some kind of medical insurance. Please someone help.
