His Story

Story of Mr. Petr

I have a wonderful family, house, and career – simply, everything I had always dreamt of. I would never think that my life can suddenly change. After a short walk in wood in May I found a small tick. I didn’t pay much attention to that but after a few days the swelling started to grow and my wife forced me to see a doctor. They told me the same day that I probably got borreliosis.

I had never thought that my life could suddenly change. I start anew in Darkov and I believe that I will win.

I got used to fight in life so I followed doctors’ advice, started to get treated, and didn’t think about it. My family was there for me almost every day but they had to do without me at work for the first time. I was getting worse. Headaches, dizziness, faintness. Then I woke up one day and couldn’t speak or move.

I had never thought that my life could suddenly change. I start anew in Darkov and I believe that I will win.
