First, what does recovery feel like?

Is it a good day here and there, and then more good days, and still more, by mostly good days.


Second, what does total remission feel like?

Is it "I'm recovered and I hope to get on with my life"?

Is it "I'm 75% of my former self"?

Is it "I'm doing well, but my !@#$ still hurts like hell"?

How do we know I guess if this is as good as it gets?



we need a cure.

I know there is a feeling of remission if not feeling "cured" because I was there for 1 year almost 2.  I had been in different stages of Lymes 15 years.  When I finally finished my meds it took a couple of years to built up my strength.  Then it seems like spring came and I felt better than I had in years and each day I felt better and better.
 
Unbeknownst to me I had the co-infection babesia.  When I started feeling bad again and was losing ground my daily question was:
Is it "I'm doing well, but my !@#$ still hurts like hell"?
 
As I was seen by various different doctors, their comment was usually "You've had Lymes what do you expect." 
So then my daily question was:
 
How do we know I guess if this is as good as it gets?
 
Now, I'm working through the Mepron/Zithro with the goal of getting back what I had just a couple of years ago. 
Together we can do this with support, sharing information and education.  
 
I didn't have the forums and blogs before when I went through treatment and I SOOO appreciate having them now.
Good luck to you and thanks for sharing your questions and thoughts.

Thanks MaggieMoo.

Don't give up until you're back where you were when that spring came and things were great.

I wonder why the co-infection took so long to surface.

The "well, you've had lyme what do you expect line" is a cop out.

Good luck and keep the faith.

Yeah, I was at the grocery store getting dinner when suddenly I noticed my @#$% hurt like hell.
