Afro-Latina Whose Life Changed from a Bug Bite
I was chronically ill for about 12 years before diagnosis with GI issues and terrible headaches with vertigo. I saw dozens of doctors who treated me for depression before I went to a doctor who told me she thought I may have Lyme disease. A few days later my test came back positive, and after a two week antibiotic "treatment" that left me feeling like death, I was pretty much left in the dark. It's already tough getting clear answers within Western Medicine, but add being a woman--a black woman--a black Latina and it seems like their is no help in sight. I'm hoping my story can change that.
