MICHIGAN LYME DISEASE ASSOCIATION
September 9, 2012

This group is absolutely fabulous! I don't know how I would have made it without their help. Linda helped me find a doctor, one of the support group leaders was up late with me on the phone one night until the wee hours of the morning, and they are terrific whenever you have a question or need a hand!

MICHIGAN LYME DISEASE ASSOCIATION
June 21, 2010

I don't know where I'd be today if it wasn't for the MLDA. I was going through the loop of doctors to find out what was happening to me, because I felt, literally, like every system in my body was going crazy all at the same time. I was getting test after test, but nobody could find anything wrong. I'd even been told it "couldn't be lyme because we don't have that in Michigan...". (Not only not true, but hey, it is possible that people do camp/hike OUTSIDE of Michigan, which was utterly dismissed.) They were so very helpful in helping me find a doctor to see if lyme disease was the cause of my problems, and so very kind in just listening to me. I was having a very bad evening one day, feeling really very, very bad, and one of the ladies talked to me at 10 p.m. for about an hour and a half until I started to feel better. In addition, they always call you back, which isn't something I can say for some other non-profits I've tried to volunteer for. Things are MUCH better now, and I know if it wasn't for this amazing group of people I'd still be getting bounced from doctor to doctor and getting the royal run-around.

The Great!
