I'm reading "Cure Unknown right now", and now I know why it is so recommended! It is so reassuring. I was still kind of worried that maybe I didn't have Lyme disease, and it was something else, because I had trouble finding examples of people with symptoms similar to mine.

Not anymore! Sure, most of her examples are of people who get extremely, extremely ill, but she makes a note of describing their disease progression. And so I get to read about people who had symptoms that they could live with, or ignore, for years, before they became debilitated. And my symptoms are so similar to theirs for the first few years of their illness.

I think I just go really really lucky, and find Lyme disease when it was mild enough that most people missed it. It's also kind of scary, because I get to hear about people who had joint pain and mild fatigue for years, but then, when they start getting symptoms like muscle twitches and brain fog, they crash suddenly.

My symptoms were increasing exponentially (in both number and severity) in the month and a half before I saw a lyme-literate ND. I can't help but think that if I hadn't found her, I'd probably be one of those extremely sick people by now.

Nicky,

That is what happened to me. I had brain fog and fatigue really bad for a few years. Every year I would get something else that never seemed to make sense. Last year, I felt pretty good again, then by the end of August, I crashed. I was in bed for 3 months! It was horrible. I'm kinda back there again....not counting these past few days that I've felt better again. But, you explained me to the tee.

Im so glad you caught it in time. It's not fun going from being in college, to barely making it off the couch in less than 8 months.

Where did you get that book? I'd like to read it myself.
