about lyme disease. My LLMD and gp told me to see a psychiatrist for the anxiety and depression that has gotten so bad. So I went. This guy was about 30 and knew nothing about lyme. Belittled me for all the meds I'm on and just went thru his general routine. Very arrogant. Appt. lasted 20 min. tops. Didn't listen to me at all and totally uncaring. I'm so sick of having to teach docs about lyme disease. Are there psychiatrists that specialize in lyme? I take a bunch of pain meds, anxiety meds, sleep meds, antibotics and lots of supplements. I couldn't function without them. Are there other lymies out there that have to take all this or am I only one. My guess is not. I hate taking them, but I hate the pain more. Anyway, thanks for listening. I can't what for the day when docs are educated on chronic lyme disease and can understand how devastating it is to all the body functions, without making you feel like your a druggy or crazy. Love ya all, Kris

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...
