Good day all. I'm writing this in hope of someone looking at these events and hopefully being able to find a comono thread in all of them.

In 2004, I was diagnosed with Erlichia (Tick disease) ***n near killed me.

Then about 6 months later, I came down with a really bad flu/Pnumoia that sent me to the hospital.

Then It was MRSA, which almost killed me...several weeks in the hospital.

Then this weekend, I came down with Aseptic Menengitis. Spent the weekend in the hospital sick as a dog...and I'm currently supporting the queen mother of headaches.

SO I ask this, What is the common link through all of these events. I'm starting to worry that my immune system has been compromised in some manner.

I've tested negative for aids...All my blood work comes back normal...BUt still I come down with the damndest of sicknesses. White counts are normal. Liver and kidney funtions are normal. ***l...they've even told me I shouldn't be getting sick at all with some of the results coming in.

Could the erlichia damaged my iummune repsonse? Becuase I'm starting to think I'm cursed.

Side note, My wife and I have two kids who are in day care...Little engines of illness is what I'm starting to call them.

  • Thanks for the reply. The lyme/ehrlichia realtionship is one I'll look at anew. I'm honestly at a loss. I've just hit the high points of the last 3 or so years in terms of illness. There have been all kinds of other little sicknesses that put me in the hospital for a day or so (One where my buttocks and crotch bruised really badly. And another when I could get a nosebleed to stop) I go out and look on the net for similar instances and get nothing. It seems most auto immune problems are related to females. Thus not a lot of information is out there for men. ***l, I don't even know if it's auto immune related for certain. I just can't fathom all these occurances happening independant of each other. Surely they can't be mutaly exculsive events. But for the life of me and my doctors, we can't find anything to tie it all together. So if anyone has any informtion that could put me on a fresh track, I would be appreciative.
