Doreena is living with chronic borreliosis in Saratoga Springs, NY, together with her partner Chuck. Before getting sick, Doreena had never seen a tick and she did not get a rash from the tick bite. Initially she lost temporarily the sight of her left eye and was feeling very nauseous.
Doreena has sought help from different medical professionals, but none of the doctors she has met were able to help her. She feels that she has not been taken seriously by medical professionals. She has tried different prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs which have not offered any help. Doreena is suffering from various symptoms of Lyme disease such as shaking and vomiting. Due to her illness she has lost many friends and close ones. Without her partner Chuck she would feel completely lonely and isolated.
