Like many Lyme warriors, I’ve gained a certain amount of my health. A certain. I want the rest. I want to be COMPLETELY healthy, not semi. I am aging, so I have to keep those aging issues everyone deals with in account, and learn every day to be patient. But I’m getting impatient with this last mile or so of this race. The neurological issues I’m still struggling with, are they from menopause, aging or Neuro Lyme? Or all three? I’d like to believe that I can recover fully but as of now reality still keeps me in a neurological disadvantage; if I walk too long my left leg refuses to lift and I start to stumble over myself, I forget and also remember, my attention span is the length of a gold fish, I’m moody and irritable with boring people, I have high anxiety leaving my house. Odd contrast to my original personality. I can’t look people in the eye while talking without felling strong nausea waves hit my gut followed by high levels of agitation. Another odd contrast to my original personality.
What’s going on? Was I better at hiding or ignoring these details in the past? Or is my mind deteriorating? I think it’s a bit of both.
“While the CDC reported 427,000 new cases in 2017 based on surveillance criteria, actual numbers on clinical diagnosis put that number at well over one million. It is now well accepted that 10 to 20 % of these cases go on to become chronic illness, and these numbers don’t even include those people who become chronically ill without ever witnessing a tick attachment or a bull’s-eye rash. In other words hundreds of thousands of people develop a chronic illness every year with Lyme disease.“-Recovery from Lyme Disease, an Integrative Medicine Guide to Diagnosing and Treating Tick-Borne Illness, by Daniel A.

I just got his book from Amazon today and I do hope to find the answers that have evaded me this far. I’m a little confused at times as to certain treatments for chronic Lyme disease and multiple co-infections since due to its complicated essence. I hope this book will reveal the answers I’m looking for. I’ll let you know if it does.
