I am 35 years old single woman. In 2001 I was graduated at the Faculty of Natural Sciences in branch chemistry. I was best student of the year. I was very happy young girl with big dream to work as scientist. I continued on PhD studies at Faculty of Pharmacy. In 2007, when I was graduated as a PhD of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, I have started to have problems with massive anxiety and depression. I stayed in bed for months and any antidepressants didn't help me. I lost ambitions, I lost energy to life. After some years in the dark, in 2011 my mind became better. But I feel my psychical body is very tired. I always slept, I suffered from chronic fatigue. I didn't understand what it means. I undergo many medical examinations, but nothing explains my problems. I started to have intense joint and back pains, memory loss and unexplained perspiration. I started to visit gym, but it didn't help me. I was more and more tired. Finally, I could not move and my neurologist recommend me hospitalisation. After weeks of analgesic infusions, one young physician comes with suspiction of Lyme disease. In Czech Republic, where I live, Western Blot test for borrelia is not obvious, because it is expensive. But when they did this test, Lyme was confirmed. The obvious cure here is 21 days of doxycycline, but it didn't help me. I slept all the time and my pain was worse and worse. Then, I have found neurologist in Slovac Republic. She treats Lyme with Stratton protocol. She explained me, my borreliosis has started many years ago as was diagnosed and my psychic problems was probably caused by Lyme.
Now, I feel much better, but I am on therapy only for 8 months. Meanwhile, after all these troubles I have lost my job at univesity, because long time in hospital. Now, I am in stress, because I have no job and have no money for another cure. I work only as a volunteer with people suffered from depression. I need money to continue in treatment by antibiotics. I don't want to give up without fight! I always hope I will be able work again as a scientist.
Please, invest in my cure. Thank you very much!
