Well, my Psych of whom I had always thought of as Lyme 'knowledgeable" and has been a great source of support and clarifying for me burst my balloon yesterday.
We were talking about the anxiety/panic dificulties I am having and he wanted me off Abx to see if it was a side effect of the meds. Now, we have talked about herx reactions, and I brought them up again, suggesting that this may be the reason and reminding him (gently) that the Lyme spirochete is the same as Syphillis in almost every way. Therefore it stands to reason that some of the problems (if not all) I am having are connected to Lyme.
He looked me square in the eyes and said "well, yes....however with a few doses of Abx, the problem was solved". ARRRRGGGHHH! Does the ignorance never stop? I have taken him SO MUCH information on the neuro/psych manifestations of Lyme, and you could put my picture alongside the descriptions! He specializes in molcular Psych, and yet I have a feeling he nas not even LOOKED at most of what I have taken him.
Then he revisited the "bi-polar" spectrum topic. I almost walked out. I have been seeing him for a year now and really thought he was on board. Now it feels like he has been blowing smoke up my ass all this time.
There, vented. Luv to all here, onward and upward.
