About a month ago, my 12 year old son started feeling ill. First, his eyes got very red, then his throat was hurting. Medical treatment did not seem to be helping. As time went on, he began experiencing joint pain.
I took him to emergency four times, our family doctor once, and then, luckily, we were referred to and got in to see a pediatrician quickly.
We are operating under the assumption that he has lyme disease.
Then, a few days ago, i noticed what looked like a tiny red puncture with a white ring around it and a circular bruise around that. I was preoccupied with the care of my son, so i didn't pay atttention to this small mark.
At the insistence of a friend, i had this mark looked at by a doctor. It took the doctor two seconds before diagnosing me with lyme disease.
My son and I are both on the same dose and type of antibiotic.
I have so many feelings and it is so hard to watch my son suffer and to be unable to do anything to help him. I, myself, am feeling unwell. Because of my depression, I have little support. My family lives 9 hours away and are elderly, or busy with their own lives.
So far, I am managing. I would feel so much better if my son would improve just a bit.
Anyway, DF, thanks for listening. Please send vibes my way.

That is awful, you must be incredibly worried. I am sending lots of light and good vibes your way. I hope your son improves soon.
