What I am experiencing this week feels exactly how it felt 2 years ago -- a whopping depression, anxiety and mental/cognitive problems -- and it feels so physical as opposed to my attitude -- it has just come on hard , like it's 'hit' me.  They are bringing me to my knees and I can't get 'up'.  It's unbearable.  I feel as if I'm in a nightmare I can't climb out of.  My mind is not my own.  And now I have to go to work where the other ladies are going into hystronics over every mistake I make.
 
Is this more apt to be from 200 mg doxy or a new infection?
 
I received Quest lab work yesterday. They did not do all the tests the Dr ordered.  Some, they can't read or he ordered incorrectly (like the WB).  I called them. They said they tried repeatedly to call him and he never returned calls.  The lab tech did not even know how to order some of the tests.  Furthermore, They mailed the results to the wrong address.
 
I have tried repeatedly to find out results of my CD57, but cannot reach the Dr or the nurse. (they are in the 'lyme' office very infrequently). I hate to say this, but it's beginning to feel like a little money maker on the side. 
 
Meantime, anyone think I should double up on my doxy and wing it til I can get into another LLMD?

PS: I am going off on people (strangers -- guy on bicycle and guy at dog park) and my kids all seem fed up w/ me. If I could find somewhere safe for my dogs, I would check into a hospital, but no such luxury.

I don't need sympathy, I need to figure out what is going on now and what to do about it.

pps: sorry, I'm mental here...

Did anyone else's LLMD order junk like parvovirus and Herpes virus, which Quest states almost everyone is positive for? why would he order stuff that has no meaning?

I am sorry you are having such a rough go of it. All I can tell you is now that I have upped my Abx. dosage and added Samento to the mix, my symptoms have increased greatly, including some mental stuff. I am not dealing with depression, but my memory currently is horrific! I will walk in a room for something and forget why I entered the room. It sucks, but I am trying to view this as a good thing. That I am truly shaking things up. I just hope that at some point things will start to decrease.

Oh, and my LLMD did not order any viral tests. He just ordered certain Lyme tests and also tested for co-infections. But you are right, most of the population has been exposed to Parvo, EB and a least one of the Herpes viruses. I hope you feel better soon.
