I tripped across this site and joined in the hopes of having other Lyme sufferers to share with. My story mirrors so many others that I have read this evening, I now do not think I am losing my mind (although at a few points, I was sure of it!) I have been very fortunate to have located an LLMD, and had begun heavy antibiotic treatment until he discovered that I also have Babesiosis. I had to stop that, and now am taking Mepron and azithromycin for 6 weeks. Then a re-assess. I am certainly not looking forward to the Herxing again, however knowing that I WILL be better at some point is helpful. I was struck with this at the pinnacle of my career, and just after landing my dream position in a community agency. Needless to say, my family life (husband and 2 children) has also been dramatically affected. I have always been the strong one, the change in roles is very difficult. I am tired of being sick, and not being able to do things because of it. Sorry, if it sounds like I am whining...it's just refreshing to get it all out. I am sorry also that there are so many others here, but it also gives me an odd kind of comfort. I look forward to sharing and interacting with you! Please take care of yourselves.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
