You have a lot of stress on you being sick with Lyme.

Just go easy on yourself. Try and think positive thoughts. I know it sounds trite but it can really really help.

Also, if you need reassurance from him, ask for it. Don't whine about it as that will make you feel worse. Just say would you do thus and such, or when you do thus and such, it makes me feel great.

Hang in there.

This too shall pass

First of all (I apologize if I've said this before, I can't remember - haha eyes ) I think we debated this issue or came to a quasi-conclusion that being named, Jen, Jennifer, Jenny, Jeni, or any variation thereof should be added to the list of Lyme disease "symptoms" rolleyes smilewinkgrin rolleyes .
I did the same things that you are doing even to the point of leaving my husband for a 10 mo. period.... (we just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary last month!)  I was so tired of apologizing, and yelling at him for no reason, and not being able to physically do anything... and loosing my marbles along the way.  Felt like I had 2 brain cells left and they were both trying to kill each other! rolleyes skull rolleyes .
Counseling helped (I say humbly, because I'm very sarcastic and my shrinks have put up with me throughout this disease).  The right medication could help, you may want to check your rx's with your doctor(s) to see if they should make some changes that would help.
Now, my husband is my rock.  He is the one and only person who believed in me and this disease from day one (even when I didn't believe!).  One thing I know for sure, we really like each other.  I love him more today than the day I married him.
Hope this helps.
PS - I also bought a "Nerf" assault rifle that I can shoot at the TV, the walls, mostly the TV, etc. and that seems to be relieving pent up stress and anxiety. rolleyes idea rolleyes smilewinkgrin !

hello...JELAINEP AKA Jennifer.....maybe we are cursed to hve the same symptoms lol..... i am on celexa and maybe i should to my doc and see if upping them would help me out. some days i feel like i am going crazy. I am just glad that my boyfriend doesnt get mad at me for it cuase he knows i am not feeling well and he just doesnt know what to say to me but that he is her for me and if i need anything to let him know.... I dont like to talk about my lyme all the time and i dont mention it much with him cause i dont want him to feel pitty for me..

he tells me all the time that he knows i am a strong person and that i will make it through this and will be fine....

I spoke to an EX of mine tonight and i was telling him about my brain mental syptoms and he turned around and said to me you are having the same syptoms that holly had and i said yes casue we have lyme and i said are you applyieing that i am taking her syptoms and thnking that i have them...he said no but its weird...but i know what he was trying to get at....his mom had lyme and she was on meds for a month and she is fine and he said that if you think positive and fight through it you be fine but i believe that but it hits everyone differently....

this just upset me that i feel like no onebelieves me and how i am feeling but people who have lyme and that i dont even want to talk about it with any one else.....

jennie48 - Now you know why that that guy is your "EX". Next time, don't call him... but if you do, feel free to drop a few "F" bombs and then hang up.

What's interesting about this post, is the fact that I  thought I wrote it. Sounds just like what I go through. I attribute it to Lyme, because I swear I was the happiest person on Earth a year ago.

I became very dyslexic with words! I would say "Pass me the scissors" at the dinning room table instead of "Pass me the salt". I was always using the wrong word for things.
And yes, sometimes just looking at my husband when he walked in the room would bring out such rage for no reason. It took work on my part to remind myself that he was on my side and not push him away.
This disease takes so many things away from us, so I believe in fighting for the things i can control. If it's tough to manage 1 day at a time, then go for one hour and if that's tough go for one minute at a time. All that adds up before you know it.
Good luck

Oh, Mu Gosh, me too. I find myself apologizing to everyone, and I feel they think I'm slow or stupid or something. I can't spell anymore. I can't think. This is just awful, just awful.
 
We will get better Jeenie
