About Me: Female, 28, Columbus, OH, member since Oct 2010
I am a hardworking career-oriented woman too young to be dealing with the medical issue cards I've been dealt. I was bitten by a tick in April 2009 in the backwoods of Ohio. My doctor wasn't worried about Lyme Disease because Ohio isn't an "endemic area" as he put it.
[More] He told me he tested me for Lyme which came back negative to realize later that he had never really tested me for it in the beginning. I was only recently diagnosed with it in July 2012. Ever since that tick bite my health has rapidly declined, and I have a medical condition list that stretches from here to China not to mention the chronic pain issues followed by the hell that is opiate dependence I've had to deal with as well.
I am well-educated in pharmacology, addictionology, and some diseases after countless masters courses and journal research articles in medicine and psychology. I'd like to get a PhD in neuroscience focusing on diseases of the brain such as addiction and substance abuse.
