I was away on vacation for a week, and had no access to internet, which is why I haven't been here for a week. I tried to catch up on old posts, but there were way too many for me right now, sorry!
Although I had fatigue, I never had muscle fatigue/tiredness as a symptom...until now. Three weeks into my antibiotics, and I feel like a limp noodle of spaghetti. All of my strength has deserted me, and I feel worse than ever. Spent the holiday dizzy, light-headed, exhausted and generally feeling like crap. I thought that because my pain level had gone back to normal, my herx was over, but apparently not. I'm just hoping to get my ducks in a row before Wednesday, which is when I start school.
On the good side, my family read "Cure Unknown", and are now a lot more understanding of lyme. Unfortunately, they don't have much confidence in my ability to handle a full course load at school. And, because of the strict rules for scheduling and courses, dropping a course this semester could mean I have to drop a whole bunch of courses next semester....I wouldn't mind taking an extra semester of school, but I am honestly wondering if it is possible at this point. I have until Sept 15 to decide, and there are people who can help me with the scheduling at school, but I'm a little stressed. If I can just get through the next 8 months, I'll be on another internship, and those require far less brain power than school. So I'll be crossing my fingers and praying hard for the next couple of weeks
