    to Barbara, yes I live in High Point. You are right, I have stopped trying to explain, but now maybe I will use this.

    Not to dismay anyone but, fibromyalgia is not an illness, nor is Chronic fatigue or a lot of other pseudonyms for inflamation in a certain part of the body, like arthritis. Itis means inflamation, myalgia is pain from body wide inflamation because of an infection or two or three or many. These can be viral or bacterial or fungal,or allergic and maybe more.

    I’m not trying to scare anyone, but I have been sick for so many years
    I don’t know which year it all actually started. I had scarlet fever when I was nine, they had just discovered penicillin, which messed up my digestive track, which is where the major part of your immune system lives. And so on and so on, now I
    have lyme disease which is an inflamatory bacteria plus several
    of it’s co-infections. I will look this up when I’m through here, but I think scarlet fever is a viral illness-not bacterial and should not be treated with anti-biotic. Anyone who has fever blister should be treated with anti-virals. A lot of skin issues are caused by fungus or virus, our doctors simply don’t treat them.

    You have to do your research and be sure that you get the correct treatment. It would be a GOOD idea to go to a naturapathic MD. They are the only ones that look at the whole body illness.

    Wishing everyone a great summer, STAY AWAY FROM TICKS,
