oh yeah, very odd. I mean I was getting so disconnected from everything.
In a way it was a nice place to be, for I was not effected or hurt by anything or anyone...and man...everything was amusing to me. Like a sort of crazy women or something.

Now that my mind is clear and all of my sypmtoms are gone.
I must admit that all of having all of my fog gone...it is hard.

I have no pain yet...it is like having cold water thrown all over me after having been in a comfy coma.

I feel raw! It is a rude awakening of sorts.

I feel too raw.
I am also so upset that I have spent 4 years so sick and so have my kids and not one of my stupid fancy Dr.s told me about silver. Not one mention of it.

Why??? Because there is no money in it for them?

Oh well. I am glad that Envita has helped me. I am happy to see what it is doing for so many other people there. I am just saddened about the fact that this seems to be the only place that has this therapy in the usa..I just do not understand why/
But I found something that works for me finally and my girls are thrilled and my family and friends are all happy to have me back. I am running back home to get my 5 year old and bringing her out here to get fixed with me. I am just sad that my kids suffered so much the last few years and bring put back in school and having been sick all the time....
But hey....at least I finally I found it. We are going to have a good christmas finally!

I was going out of my mind. But lyme does cause Dementia.
I heard that abx could cause neroligical problems too. But I was so messed up already, that I don't think it was the abx for me. Gosh who knows...the chicken or the egg...lol

uncontrollable laughter to the point of delirious tears.... as an original Hoosier and kind of big football fan, I was amazed to hear the term "Touchdown Jesus" during the Pitt v Notre Dame game this week-end.  I was balled up on my bed in pain and just burst out laughing..... and, after all this time, it was "Touchdown Jesus" that I should've been praying to!

I have not had this symptom, and when things are bad for me I like to watch comedy. I do however have a very uncomfortable feeling in my head if I find something really funny. If I laugh really hard at something I feel like the top of my head is just gonna fly off. Kinda like the feeling when rushing down a freefall on a rollercoaster.

J. Clark Nicholson,

I think what you're describing is caused by endorphin release from the laughter. Perhaps those of us with Lyme are more sensitive to the effects of this natural and normal release of endorphins from laughter (also released during exercise - e.g., "runner's high")...

BTW, I read your story - you are a great storyteller, I think you should write a book about your Lyme journey.

Take care,

I have uncontrollable crying, wish it was laughing, might be easier to take. Anyone have uncontrollable crying that comes "out of nowhere?" It lasts for a few minutes and then I am fine again. What exactly causes these moments of unexpected emotion??
