    for those who don't know me, I have lyme disease and have been toying with the idea of moving to oregon and getting physician assisted suicide or going to sweden or something.
    well I can't now. no matter how bad the suffering gets I have to suffer through and survive.
    my worst fear has come true. my son has it :(
    he is 17 and so full of life, an amazing athlete, gifted student. this disease just sucks. i hope we caught it early and he can be cured, i dont want him to end up with permanent neuro, brain, heart damage.
    now I have to be strong for him. if I kill myself, what kind of message would that send to him, who has the same disease?

    I am sorry to hear about both you and your son. I have known others with this disease and they were able to go on and lead healthy, productive lives. I hope this is true for the both of you. You are right about the message it would send to your son. Stay strong. You both need to be. I will hold you in my thoughts. :hug:
