Thanks for the encouragement, Borderlyme. I'm going to check out the hints on the "new to Lyme" thread which you suggested. I can tell you, though, that I've already taken several baths with Epsom salts and hydrogen peroxide to try and detox and awoke the next morning feeling even worse. Even a plain old hot bath seems to aggravate my symptoms. I do drink tons of water and one 12-oz glass of lemon water per day. My exercise consists of walking my dog, usually at least a mile a day. I really thought that when I had 2 good runs of 9-10 successive days of feeling quite well that I was really on the road to recovery, but I've felt pretty terrible for about 3 straight weeks now, and I'm wondering why I'm taking these abx and an herb and probiotics. I get so frustrated that I can't be myself, that this Lyme (or whatever it is) messes with my mood - sometimes several times a day - and I'm dragging around trying to put on a normal face for friends and most of my family. Right now, my mood is in the dumpster, I have a dull but strong ache under my left ribs, my heart is sitting somewhere in my throat, and my stomach has bloated up again and is extremely sore. Sometimes all those symptoms lift quickly and mysteriously which is what happened last night about 9PM. Within seconds, boom, gone - and for the last few hours of the day I feel like my old self again. I go to bed, read my prayers and a good book, but when I wake up, all the symptoms are back again to say Good Morning. Long post, so sorry. Just so confused, so discouraged.
With God, all things are possible.
