PokeCheck's Bad News (cross posted)

This isn’t really all that mundane, nor is it pointless, but I really didn’t know where else to place a pronouncement that wasn’t a question or an answer to a prior question.

PokeCheck recently was diagnosed with Lyme disease, and it appears she’s had it for quite some time, anyway enough time to do joint and heart damage. It was previously misdiagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis and was being treated as such. This allowed the Lyme disease to continue unabated way past the time when it could’ve been easily treated by antibiotics.
She’s pretty scared, especially that there’s a chance that it was passed to Ian (her baby) in utero.


Why always my friends and decent folks? Anybody? God? I need an answer!

Oh God, I’m so sorry to hear that!
Wishing all the best,
