Alliance woman uses art in battle with Lyme Disease

Sue Thomas, of Alliance, has been battling with Lyme Disease for a number of years. She tries to keep positive, and says she is using art as a healing therapy while hoping and waiting for a solution to Lyme disease.

Hunting season is coming and with it the danger of Lyme Disease. Hunters should be particularly careful to ensure they aren’t bitten.

A little tick can bite without a person realizing it for several hours. If it is a tick carrying Borrelia Burgdorferi Spirochetes the bite could have a red bullseye at the bite site, and you could have Lyme Disease.

Lyme Disease is named for Lyme, Connecticut where it was first identified about 40 years ago.

Lyme Disease is called “the Great Imitator” as it has symptoms common to MS, ALS, or Alzheimer’s.

Sue Thomas of Alliance was bit in May of 2011, a few days later she wasn’t feeling well, with flu-like symptoms. Her doctor gave her antibiotics for a skin infection.

Then some weird symptoms started, the bottom of her feet hurt, and she started to experience headaches, night sweats, sleeplessness, arthritis in all joints, pain in her gall bladder, spleen, heart, and even air hunger. However, the tests didn’t find any cause for her symptoms.

Thomas started doing her own research and found she was not alone.
